The Toronto Raptors are back in action tonight as they are in Washington to take on the Wizards. The Raptors have won four in a row and six of their last seven. The Wizards have won two of their last four after winning three straight. This is the second of four meetings between the teams. The Raptors won the first meeting 96-88 on November 22 in Toronto.

Here are some notes for tonight's game:

  • The Raptors are coming off an impressive 95-82 win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. With games coming up against the Miami Heat and the Pacers again, the Raptors can't afford to overlook this game.
  • Three of the Raptors four wins during their current win streak have been by double digits. 
  • Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has recorded six or more assists in 22 straight games. He has five double-doubles during that stretch, including three in his last four games.
  • Wizards point guard John Wall had 37 points on 15-21 shooting in the first meeting between the teams.
  • The Wizards have lost four of their last five at home.
  • The Raptors have lost five of their last six and 13 of their last 18 in Washington
