KEY MATCHUP

Beal vs. DeRozan

To say DeMar DeRozan is on a roll is a gross understatement. The shooting guard has scored 113 points (43-33-37) in the three games the Raptors have played without injured backcourt mate Kyle Lowry. Wizards guard Bradley Beal is having his best season offensively (22.6 points per game), but he is going to need some help slowing DeRozan down.

NEED TO KNOW

The Raptors catch a bit of a break with the schedule; Washington is finishing a back-to-back set after hosting Golden State on Tuesday night . . . The Raptors won an earlier game in Washington and have beaten the Wizards in eight straight games . . . Washington boosted its bench scoring by adding small forward Bojan Bogdanovich from Brooklyn at the trade deadline . . . The Wizards are just 10-15 on the road this season.
