Wall is 'very confident' in Forcing Game 7

Forcing a Game 7 was already going to be a difficult task for the Washington Wizards, but it sounds like the task could get a bit harder. In Games 2-5, DeRozan has averaged 31.8 points, including his 32-game outburst in Game 5 that tilted the series in Toronto's favor. Now, the next two games will be do or die time for John Wall and company after a down night. They're dynamic and explosive.

The Toronto Raptors' best player has become a serious problem for the Washington Wizards, as they now face a 3-2 series deficit and the bleak reality that one more loss means their season is over.

The Washington Wizards now find themselves in a 3-2 hole against the Toronto Raptors.

Washington shot 8 for 24 in the fourth quarter, and Toronto had 15 rebounds in the final frame.

There are many theories for why the site of a game has such a pronounced effect on outcome in the National Basketball Association, from biased officiating to the comforts of home to the idea that there is evolutionary psychology going on that sees players instinctively protecting their home turf.

Calderon provided a huge lift, making a pair of three-pointers and contributing several other hustle plays in 20 minutes. "He's been more aggressive offensively, which we need him to do". "If we knock down some more shots, we'll be OK". We're back at home. Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points, and Joe Ingles added 16.

The Raptors clutched a one-point lead going into the fourth quarter in front of a nervous Air Canada Centre crowd of 19,987 that included Drake and Canadian swimming star Penny Oleksiak.

But the three balls were starting to fall more regularly for Toronto. We've got to get some ball movement and we'll be right back on track. "They just made some bigger shots and big momentum plays down the stretch that really hurt us in the fourth".

This group of Raptors has a checkered history in Game 6s.

Wall finished the night with 26 points, nine rebounds, nine assists but he had seven turnovers - the latter an uncharacteristic stat. We just didn't make shots.

The Raptors missed their first three shots of the game, but then made six of their next seven. Home team has won every game in the series so far and Wall said after the defeat that he expects that trend to continue on Friday.

Markieff Morris needs to be the presence he was in Game 1.

The Wizards should look to how the defended him in Game 4 as a good example of how to limit his impact. Perhaps Tomas Satoransky will finally do something.

Washington's bench is not deep and, for two straight games, Wall has been on the floor for the entire second half. Teams matched one another with basket after basket and the difference remained one heading into the fourth quarter.

"We love our chances", Wall said when asked of his team's chances of winning Game 6, per ESPN. "We're very confident. It's the best out of three, and for somebody to win the series they got to win on the road". In the first round, they lost 101-83 at IN but won Game 7 at home.
