    RAPTORS 98 WIZARDS 106

    The Toronto Raptors saw their playoff series lead disappear on Sunday. Bradley Beal scored 31 points, while John Wall had 27, and the Washington Wizards beat Toronto 106-98 to tie their opening-round Eastern Conference series at two games apiece. Game 5 is Wednesday in Toronto, where the Raptors lost just seven games in the regular season, then the series returns to Washington for Game 6 on Friday. Turnovers proved costly for Toronto for the second straight night, with the Raptors coughing up 19 points on 18 giveaways, including 11 in the first half. The Raptors had expected the Wizards to put up a fierce fight on their home court, where they pulled even with Boston after trailing 2-0 in last year's playoffs. The Celtics went on to win the series. For a while, it looked like the Raptors might assert their status as the East’s No. 1 seed with an easy statement victory over the No. 8 underdogs. But despite taking double-digit leads in the first and third quarters, sloppy offence and lax defence helped the Wizards back into the game. With Toronto leading 54-40 in the moments after halftime, the home team reeled off a 40-point third quarter to head into the final frame tied 80-80 en route to victory.

    Keys To The Game:

    1) Raptors should just continue doing what they've done all season. The Raptors have been the best team in the East all season long. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan have done their usual work and the bench has been spectacular. As long as they trust in what has gotten them here and don't revert to bad habits when things get tough, they should be fine. Raptors are the better team, play like it!!

    2) No more turnovers!

    3) Don't pass up good shots. Have confidence!!

    4) Just win, baby!

    Let's Go Raptors!!!!

              Zainab gonna close this out over the next two. Casey's gonna smarten up and play the right lineups. The team will stop turning it over for no reason. And Indy will beat the Cavs.

              Wishful thinking, possibly.
