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.
