Washington Wizards vs. Toronto Raptors – 4/27/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

April 27 09:40 2018

The Raptors now take a 3-2 lead into Washington for Game 6 of the first-round series.

“It was just one of those things where I was trying to be unselfish and make an extra pass [in Game 4], but there wasn’t an extra pass there”, Wright said following his team’s big 108-98 win, which gave them a 3-2 series lead over the Wizards.

The Raptors converted on 46% of their field goals, including a terrific 11 for 25 effort from beyond the arc. Wall’s performance doesn’t seem to have suffered too much, though he was a little turnover prone late in the fourth on Wednesday, and the Raptors aren’t really noticing any slow-down from the league’s fastest point guard. Beal finished the game with 31 points and could have had more had he not fouled out.

The Toronto Raptors are one win away from the Eastern Conference semifinals. Toronto led for a majority of the game, with Washington seemingly a possession or two behind, ready to strike.

During their last five games, the Raptors have scored an average of 110.8 points per game (0.8 below their season average) and allowed an average of 113.8 points per game (9.5 above their season average). John Wall was solid in the defeat, collecting 26 points on 10 for 21 shooting to go with nine board and nine assists. With the shot clock winding down, Wright caught the ball in stride a good four feet behind the 3-point line.

The Polish Hammer is indeed eating as he averaged 14 points per game in the two home games versus only averaging five points per game on the road in the first two games. The Wizards five-point lead evaporated as Toronto flipped the switch and seized a six-point lead of their own. VanVleet has played fewer than three minutes in the series, all in Game 2. “We’re very confident. It’s the best out of three, and for somebody to win the series they got to win on the road”. Washington did not get a whole lot of secondary scoring in game five, and Otto Porter.

James also went 15-for-15 from the line and finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Scott’s bench-mate Kelly Oubre has been up and down this series, but has helped provide an energetic spark to the team by impacting the game on the defensive end.

Well they say winning cures all because after the Game 4 victory Gortat told a group of reporters “He’s spoon feeding me and I’m getting fat now”.

The Toronto Raptors sit one victory away from eliminating the Washington Wizards, but they’ll have to do it on the road.

Toronto is 24-19 ATS at home with 22 overs and 21 unders.

The Wizards clobbered Toronto 122-103 in Game 3, then came from behind to beat the Raptors 106-98 in Game 4 to even the series, and force a Game 6, which will be Friday at Capital One Arena. Wright, the main backup point guard for Toronto with Fred VanVleet nursing a bum shoulder, has scored about 16 points per game at home, many of those back-breaking three-pointers, and just 6.5 points per game in Washington.

Dwane Casey went to an offence-heavy lineup in Game 5 and the Raptors rewarded him with defence
