29 April, 2018, 01:16
The only time they both shot at least 50 percent was Game 4 - when Beal fouled out and Wall scored eight of the last 14 to lift the Wizards to a win. The top-seeded Rockets are headed to the second round for the second year in a row after taking care of the eighth-seeded Timberwolves. Game 7, if necessary, will be back in Toronto. It had spent all season running a movement-oriented system that naturally counters this. Washington acknowledged that, playing against these Raptors, the danger is not that Lowry and DeRozan might catch fire. "As soon as you put Fred in, Pascal just blossomed". It was VanVleet's 3-pointer with center Marcin Gortat in his face that tied the game at 78, and Miles' 3 with about 8½ minutes remaining that gave Toronto its first lead of more than a single point, at 84-80.
The Raptors are 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games. His performance and that of the Raptors bench kick off our three takeaways from Game 6. "They've been good to us all year, and they closed it out for us tonight".

Neither team has won on the other's floor.
Washington guard John Wall is averaging 26.6 points in the series and was 2 of 6 in the fourth Wednesday. "He just controls the tempo", said Siakam.
"Those guys have some ugly possessions, but most of the time, they figure it out", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said about his bench players, who overwhelmed Washington's in points, 21-6, and rebounds, 15-3, in the second half. "In a playoff game, a closeout game, you wouldn't expect your two backcourt guys to do that, but that's how our team is built", said Lowry.
Seven minutes into the game, Rubio began limping and left the game.

Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre is getting the start at small forward in Game 6 versus the Toronto Raptors.
The Wizards played John Wall far too much.
Something clearly has to change in order for them to take that next step so there'll be big decisions ahead for the franchise. The Cleveland Cavaliers, which is essentially LeBron James and a cast of extras, got drilled by IN in Game 6, and are a handful or two of plays away from a six-game sweep at the hands of the Pacers. If it turns out to be the Cavs, the rematch will bring lots of talk about the past and whether or not the Raptors can handle LeBron James.
