With the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs upon us, we take a look at first round the matchup between the Washington Wizards and the Toronto Raptors.

The Toronto Raptors overcame some dicey moments to get past the Washington Wizards 114-106 in their first meeting of the NBA East Conference playoffs first-round matchup on Saturday.

The Wizards led 91-88 early in the fourth quarter, but things turned in the favor of the Raptors after Scott was called for a flagrant foul, following an elbow that took down Lowry.

Both squads are highly talented, and both bring plenty of emotion to the table. The score was 59-55, though, and Lowry and DeRozan had four assists apiece. Kyle Lowry, who was battling a virus and coughed throughout the post-game press conference, finished with 11 points and nine assists for the Raptors.

"We're not satisfied", Casey said.

At halftime, the takes came flying in:Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan can't get their act together in the playoffs. "Whatever it was that that first game was about, hopefully we got it off our back". The undrafted backup point guard, who has evolved into the leader of Toronto's top-rated bench, was still recovering from a shoulder bruise suffered in the regular season finale.

"That goes to Kyle, he could have a bad night but he'll just make a winning play". "They're not a normal eight seed". He's getting much better. Then hot shooting from Wright and C.J Miles propelled Toronto forward. "It's the same role they played all year. but as long as those guys are producing the way they are, why should we change our rotation?"

"We're not going to look at them like they're the eighth seed because we understand what this team is capable of", DeRozan said. But the Raptors' double-digit lead was shortlived and they led 28-23 after one. They've been doing it all year...

Game 2 will be Tuesday night in Toronto.
