The last time the Toronto Raptors played the Washington Wizards, the Wizards played the role of spoiler, ultimately raining on the parade of the 19,000 who had come out to cheer on the Raptors in their first home game since before... everything.
The Raptors, a young team still getting to know one another and playing at home for the first time, were a mess in that game, and the Wizards took advantage.
Today, the Raptors look like a different team. And the Wizards, despite looking pretty solid themselves since that game, might be in for a surprise.
Let’s see how it shakes out!
