Until the Raptors finally get over that first-round hump, last season's embarrassing sweep at the hands of the Washington Wizards will loom large every time the two teams play. On the plus side, the Raptors have won both meetings with the Wizards this year and can get one step closer to sweeping the season series tonight (that'll learn 'em!) with a win in Washington.
As usual, we're here to give you the opportunity to play along with this and other games on tonight's 10-game NBA slate, simply by joining one of the many one-day fantasy basketball tournaments available on FanDuel.
Here are some links to get you started:

Kyle Lowry ($9,000)
Lowry's still only third in All-Star voting among Eastern Conference guards, although he's arguably been the conference's best guard this season. While he might be on his way to a starting lineup snub there, it'd be even sillier if you snubbed him out of your FanDuel lineup with the roll he's currently on. Over his last three games, Lowry has averaged 45.5 fantasy points per game on the strength of 20.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 2.7 steals, 0.7 blocks, and only 1.7 turnovers. His last game against Washington on December 30th was a relative dud by his standards (21.6 fantasy points), so look for him to bounce back in a big way in this one.
Time to dive into the comment section and discuss lineup construction. See you there!
