Raptors rebound with DeRozan

Wall greets fans after Game 4

But Game 6 does tip off tomorrow night in Washington, and John Wall is confident.

Game 5 proved to be an entertaining battle of stars in Toronto.

"That's the way we have to play, whether we're here, Washington, wherever it is, we gotta play to our personality", said Toronto coach Dwane Casey.

In Portland, the same question is being posed following the Blazers' unexpected sweep at the hands of the Pelicans, only it's the future of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum that's being bandied about.

The Toronto Raptors played dazzling defense in their big 108-98 game five home win on Wednesday night. In their Game 4 loss, the Raptors were only a couple of made threes away from putting the game close to out of reach in the first half. "We feel like we got a lot of good ones, especially late down the stretch, but a lot of them didn't fall". But two minutes later, the speedy Wall had the ball stolen by Valanciunas, a lumbering big man by comparison, and DeRozan finished the play with an emphatic dunk, bringing the fans to their feet with a roar.

No one on the Wizards' roster has more crunch-time minutes this season than Bradley Beal, and yet he was reduced to being a long-distance afterthought. "If we knock down some more shots, we'll be OK". We're back at home. He has only averaged 10 points per game this series compared to the 14.7 during the regular season he averaged. Teams matched one another with basket after basket and the difference remained one heading into the fourth quarter.

The female officer was shot in the face and remains in critical condition, according to a local media source. A large police presence was seen outside the store and one person was seen being loaded into an ambulance.

Wall and Beal could not match the depth in Toronto's late-game production. "And that gave us an opportunity to stay with that lineup". "We need to get some more ball movement".

"I think sometimes we get too caught up in being stagnant and watching, whether it's John, or me, or Otto [Porter Jr.], whoever has the ball, we just get too stagnant, just ball-watching too much", Beal continued. Instead, DeRozan was shouldering the scoring load, taking eight of Toronto's 20 field goal attempts in his 13-point quarter, including the team's only three-point make of the quarter (they shot just four).

Thompson posted 24 points, while going 11-of-22 from the field, a stark contrast to the 12 points he scored on 4-of-16 shooting in the Warriors' Game 4 loss on Sunday in San Antonio.

After making 18 turnovers in each of Games 3 and 4, Toronto had 10 turnovers in Game 5. Wright made big play after big play down the stretch and finished with 18 points, five rebounds and five assists in 26 minutes.

The only team in the National Basketball Association to avoid a three-game losing streak this season, the Raptors went 5-0 following back-to-back losses during the regular season, and have not lost three consecutive since last year's second-round sweep against Cleveland. In 2016, the Raptors played three Game 6s. Home team has won every game in the series so far and Wall said after the defeat that he expects that trend to continue on Friday. He scored 32 in the Pacers' Game 1 victory, but the Cavs have been double-teaming him ever since.

DeRozan is averaging 28.8 points through five games against the Raptors. "That's what was uncharacteristic about the two games in Washington, the fact that guys were turning down shots".
