TOR vs WAS Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Toronto Raptors can make it six out of six when they meet Washington Wizards in the regular season NBA match at Scotiabank Arena, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Thursday morning (IST).
Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 30 points as Toronto Raptors extended their winning streak to five games after beating Brooklyn Nets 127-125 at Scotiabank Arena.
The two-point deficit could give you a little hint about how close this match really was, and it was indeed.
Brooklyn Nets’ Joe Harris had a monstrous first half. He couldn’t have hoped for more divine connection between his hands and Basketball as he dropped 22 points in the first quarter alone on 7-for-8 from behind the arc.
Marc Gasol had a very good home debut.
The visitors were in the match throughout the regulation time, and a shock was on the cards. Raptors went six-point ahead deep in the fourth quarter but Nets’ hit two consecutive three-pointers to bring the score level at 120-120 with less than two minutes to go in the match.
Nets’ All-Star D’Angelo Russell then sent the shock waves all over the Scotiabank Arena as he buried a 3-pointer, and Brooklyn led 125-122 with just 42 seconds left in the match.
Danny Green took out his gauntlet and sent the ball into the hoop and levelled the score. Nets missed the chance on their turn and Kawhi Leonard punished them with a high-jump two-pointer.
The two-point half-time deficit increased to an 11-point lead for Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards lost the game 112-121 at Little Caesars Arena.
Wizards’ All-Star Bradley Beal couldn’t have done more as he dropped a double-double, scoring 32 points and 10 assists in the match.
This was Washington’s sixth loss in the last nine games and they remain outside the playoff spots at the moment.
Regular Season Record-
Toronto Raptors: W-42, L-16

Players to watch out for:
Kawhi Leonard – The 28-year-old is a player reborn this season. The injuries held him back during the last few years, but he is being managed intelligently in Toronto and his sustainability and longevity is the reason for the numbers he is racking up with his new team.
The 2014 NBA finals MVP is averaging 27.0 points per game this season.
Serge Ibaka – The big reason why Toronto Raptors are being seen as a true force for the ultimate glory is due to the depth in the squad. Almost every place has a viable option on the bench, waiting to contribute. Serge Ibaka is a starter though and is racking up 16.1 points per game.
Bradley Beal –The two-time NBA All-Star is the face of Washington Wizards. The talented American is a very much an elite sort of player, and his consistency is proof of where his future may take him, amongst the very best the game has ever seen. This season, the 25-year-old is scoring points at 25.1 per game.
Bobby Portis –Had a very good game from the bench last time around, scoring 24 points against Detroit Pistons. The 24-year-old added another dimension to Wizards roster after making a trade from Chicago Bulls. He is scoring points at 21.3 per game.
