What to watch for
Washington is looking for their first win of the preseason, and hopefully a better showing than their blowout loss to the Knicks last Saturday. New York had a field day from the three point line and this is one area that will have to be shored up tonight.
The Raptors are also the first team the Wizards will face when the regular season begins next week. As of the date and time of this post, they will be hosting the Houston Rockets tonight at home before facing Washington tomorrow. They have a 1-2 record in the preseason so far and this is likely as “good” of an opportunity as any for the Wizards to get a win this preseason.
