Final Score: Toronto 103, Washington 93

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Lowry had 24 points and 10 assists in the Toronto Raptors' 103-93 victory over the Washington Wizards.

"I was just taking what they were giving me. I found my teammates open," said Wizards guard Bradley Beal, who had nine points on 2-of-10 shooting. "We just didn't make shots and that's all it was. Did I have a few? Maybe. But I'm the one who's taking them and feeling comfortable and I didn't feel comfortable taking them."
