CHICAGO -- The Toronto Raptors ended their 10-game losing streak in Game 1 of playoffs openers when they handled their business on Saturday afternoon and beat the Washington Wizards, 114-106. at the Air Canada Centre.
Serge Ibaka was the unlikely scoring leader for the Raptors with 23 points while pulling down 12 rebounds. Sophomore guard Delon Wright sizzled with 18 while DeMar DeRozan had 17 points. Kyle Lowry recorded 11 points and nine assists.
Trailing 59-55 at the half, Toronto, the top seed in the Eastern Conference, exploded for 31 points in the third quarter where the Raptors swung the momentum on their favor.
As big as that victory was for Toronto's confidence, head coach Dwane Casey wasn't content. "We're not satisfied. We're in this for the run," he told the Associated Press.
Matkieff Morris had a stellar night for the Wiz -- 22 points, 11 rebounds while Bradly Beal, who struggled with just 8-of-17, poured in 11 points and nine assists. Mike Scott and Marcin Gorat added a combined 26 points.
