Raptors beat Wizards

At halftime of Game 1 against the Washington Wizards, they trailed by four, and Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan had combined for just seven points on 2 of 8 shooting from the field.

Lowry and the rest of the Raptors were well aware of the pressure, with the All-Star point guard saying on Friday, “Our Game 1 is our Game 7 tomorrow.” Serge Ibaka led the way with 23 points and 12 rebounds, while DeRozan added 17 points and six assists.
