It’s a cold wet afternoon in Toronto, which means it’s the perfect day to settle in and watch some early evening hoops! Tonight, the Washington Wizards are in town to take on your Toronto Raptors.

The Wizards, at this point, are still sitting well ahead of the Raptors in the standings, but they’re not setting the world on fire the way they were earlier this season, having won just four of their past 10 games. Not that there’s anything “fire”-related going on with the Raptors — despite their win on Thursday, the Raptors are just 3-7 in their past 10.

In terms of updates, nothing much to report: same injury report as this morning. That means no Birch or Anunoby for Toronto, no Bryant or Hachimura for the Wizards.

What can happen when two semi-cold teams clash on a cold night? Let’s find out!
