The wizards are currently down 3-2 in the playoffs against the Toronto Raptors. Just one game away from elimination, they must win two in a row to advance to the second round. They will have one game at home in Washington and one game in Toronto.
John Wall has been playing great coming off of his injury. He’s averaging about 27 points, 12 assists, 6 rebounds, 1.4 blocks, and 2.6 steals. Bradley Beal has also been playing well, except at the end of games in the clutch. He missed several open shots to tie the game and take the lead. If he was able to connect on some of these shots, the Wizards could be leading in the series.
One issue the Wizards have is their defense. They have had trouble guarding Demar Derozan as he is averaging just under 30 points a game. They are also leaving the Raptor’s shooters open, giving up many open three point shots. Their next game will be on Friday April 27th to try and tie the series.
