Washington Wizards vs Toronto Raptors Game 2

Washington Wizards vs Toronto Raptors Game 2

Beal said Tuesday that the Raptors were especially physical during their 114-106 victory in Game 1. Morris leads in rebounds with 11.0 while Wall tops in assists with 15.0.

You have to go back to 2001 when the Raptors where still somewhat of an National Basketball Association novelty to find their previous victory in Game 1 of a playoff series; that being a triumph over the Philadelphia 76'ers in the opening game of Round 2 that post season.

I honestly think the Wizards have very good chance of defeating the Raptors in Game Two if they continue to play the way they did in Game one, but obviously pull out a win. I rather you not tell me about it. Just like the last two-minute report.

Wall, who missed all four regular-season meetings between the teams, was 8-for-10 from the free throw line but said he was told he probably should have had even more foul shots.

Beal, who finished with 19 points but scored only two in the fourth quarter and went to the line just once the entire game, plans on making it more hard for the Raptors to get physical with him in Game 2. Wall has been able to play 36 minutes or more in three of the five games since his return. Wall said it has been challenging to try to figure out how he is going to be officiated. But the one before that in transition, I felt I got fouled.

"I watched the game yesterday, a ref had reffed our game and was calling so much ticky-tack", said Wall.
