Raptors keep Wizards winless away from home
It was that kind of night for the Toronto Raptors.
“Just an embarrassing effort,” Saunders said. “There’s always ways you can make excuses, being on the road, long trip, playing every other day in different cities but that’s what this league is about. It’s just very disappointing.”
“Everybody was on tonight, hitting jump shots and getting to the basket,” DeRozan said.
Jose Calderon had 11 points and eight assists as Toronto led by as many as 27 and avenged a 109-94 loss at Washington on Nov. 16. The Raptors shot 51 for 88 (58 percent), their highest percentage of the season.
“That’s a video game stat,” Wall said of Toronto’s lofty shooting percentage. “That’s like somebody who studied a video game so much that he knows exactly when to shoot and get any shot he wants. That’s how they basically felt, they could get any shot at any time. They were getting dunk after dunk, layup after layups or foul after foul.”
This is the most consecutive road losses to begin a season in Wizards history.
“It’s disappointing,” Hinrich said. “We’re very frustrated right now with our inability to go out there and perform and put forth a winning effort.”
“We didn’t come with the right mindset,” he said. “Even at shootaround we were too lackadaisical. We didn’t come out here to handle business and it showed on the court.”
Raptors rookie Ed Davis made his season debut, collecting 11 points, six rebounds and two blocked shots in 24 minutes. Toronto’s first-round pick last June, Davis injured his right knee before training camp and had surgery in September. He played with a heavy black brace on his leg.
