If this game was going down back in December, even January, would anyone tune in? The Toronto Raptors of course started with an abysmal 4 and 19 record, righted things a bit around Christmas, and then really started to gain ground post Rudy Gay.

The Wizards?

They were absolutely wretched to start the season but since John Wall has returned, have won 10 of 18, including four of their last five. The Wiz still struggle to score the ball, but as our compadres at Bullets' Forever noted in our preview today, they're playing some of the best D in the league, making up for their offensive issues.

So suddenly, tonight's game is a bit interesting, with two clubs trying to slowly crawl out of the basement, and prove that their recent play will be the norm going forward.
