Raptors vs. Wizards: Game 6 Prediction, NBA Playoff Odds

Bradley Beal added 20 points but had just three in the decisive fourth quarter.

The Toronto Raptors' best player has become a serious problem for the Washington Wizards, as they now face a 3-2 series deficit and the bleak reality that one more loss means their season is over.

Delon Wright scored 11 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, and Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 13 rebounds as the Raptors improved to 5-0 in home Game 5s over the past five years.

The game was played within a five-point margin essentially the entire contest.

John Wall almost finished with a triple-double, as the five-time All-Star had 26 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, but also coughed up seven turnovers in the process.

"We just missed some shots".

"At that point, we just got to stay aggressive", Beal said. They averaged 122 points in winning the first two games and then scored 108 in Wednesday's 10-point victory - after averaging 100.5 ppg in the two losses in Washington.

DeMar DeRozan, who began this first round series with a modest 17 points in Game 1, has since raised his game to a new level to beyond even what we have seen in the past. This Wizards team is better than that Bucks squad.

When Kelly Oubre converted a three-point play, it gave the Wizards a five-point lead, but with 6:49 to play Valanciunas stole the ball off Wall, and DeRozan finished the play with a emphatic dunk, bringing the fans to their feet with a roar.

Neighboring countries have urged the worldwide community to help alleviate the stress of housing massive amounts of Syrian refugees.

The Warriors finished with a 99-91 Game 5 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday at Oracle Arena, and it did not require coach Steve Kerr to burn some timeouts or break some clipboards to ensure the Warriors closed out their first-round series. "We need to get some more ball movement".

Gortat had six rebounds in the first quarter. Utah takes a 3-2 lead back to Salt Lake City for Game 6 on Friday. I don't think there was any secrets to it. Guys made shots when it was time to, guys made plays when it was time to.

The Washington Wizards might have to play Game 6 of their series against the Toronto Raptors without Otto Porter as the forward deals with a bone contusion in his left leg, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

But he also thinks the Wizards let Game 5 slip away just a little. The Raptors are very risky offensively and they averaged 111.7 points in the regular season, good for fourth in the National Basketball Association.

Before the game, players from both teams held up banners with the hashtag #TORONTOSTRONG and a moment of silence was held to honor the victims of the deadly van attack Monday in Toronto.

"For the most part, we feel like we didn't shoot it well, didn't play a great game and still had an opportunity to win". The Raptors took Games 1 and 2 - by scores of 114-106 and 130-119 - but their figurative wheels fell off when the series switched to Washington for Games 3 and 4.

But even with those trends, the Raptors have been a particularly bleak playoff team on the road. Beal and Porter hit late jumpers, helping Washington trim to Raptors lead to 48-47 at halftime.

The Wizards shot 61 per cent in the third quarter, while the Raptors had five three-pointers to lead by one with a quarter left.
