Toronto Raptors vs Washington Wizards

Deni Avdija had a strong game with 22 points and 13 rebounds, while Kyle Kuzma stepped up in the clutch despite a tough shooting night as the Washington Wizards defeated the Toronto Raptors 112-109. This win marks the Wizards’ second consecutive victory and prevents them from dropping to the worst record in the NBA, overtaking the Detroit Pistons.

Jordan Poole contributed 18 points, with 14 coming in the fourth quarter, to ignite a comeback. Although the Raptors put up a fight, they fell short in the end, missing a crucial shot at the buzzer. This loss extends their losing streak to ten games, the longest of the season.

Despite missing key players, the Raptors showed resilience, but ultimately struggled with turnovers and missed opportunities. Kuzma’s late-game performance was pivotal for the Wizards, as he found his rhythm and scored crucial baskets down the stretch.

Gary Trent Jr. led the Raptors with 31 points, while rookie Gradey Dick added 17 points and Kelly Olynyk chipped in with 14 points and 10 assists.

Tristan Vukcevic made his NBA debut for the Wizards, playing three minutes and grabbing a rebound. Additionally, Marvin Bagley III returned to the Wizards’ lineup after a nine-game absence due to lower back spasms, scoring 10 points off the bench.
