GAME 3 BREAKDOWN :
FT : Washington Wizards - Toronto Raptors 113:117
We got the tip off and the game begun! We decided to let Kawhi have some rest so Norman Powell along with OG at the forward positions. We saw a bit of everything in the 1st Q - couple dunks, couple jumpshots, couple 3 pointers from both sides and the score was fairly close, though it felt like we were in more control as we ended the quarter 22:24 in our favor.
2nd quarter was underway and it seemed like every time we tried to get ahead, Wizards kept on pulling back to us. JV showed off some new moves as he made some sneaky turnaround hook-shots! We made a good run led by Lowry’s long range 3 pointers and found ourselves ahead 55:43 with 1:20 to go. Sadly, we had a little meltdown. We turned the ball over couple times and the Wizards turned these to 3 pointers on their end. Fortunately, we still managed to go to the break in 54:57 lead.
Washington came out hot from the break and managed to get ahead 61:59 with 9 minutes left. The quarter stayed close til about 4 minutes to go. We made the step and went ahead thanks to beautiful shots from Kyle and Freddy! We looked comfortable and finished the 3rd Q in 82:90 lead.
We looked in command at the start of the 4th but things started to heat up as there were bunch of foul calls that didn’t get the best reactions. There was an interesting scenario - Oubre had a nice dunk on Siakam and Siakam responded with a 3 pointer! Wizards came and pulled the score back to single digits. Amazingly, our guards Kyle and Freddy took over and made some big plays for us! Freddy made a big floater and clutch free throws to put the game away in the end! 113:117 RAPTORS WIN!
Our best Raptors tonight :
K.Lowry - 28pts 12ast
J.Valanciunas - 16pts 7reb
