In the Amalie Arena, Toronto Raptors defeated Washington Wizards, 103-101, in a new round of the NBA Eastern Conference. The hosts recovered from a 19-point deficit in the second half from an agonizing trippy.
When the party died, Gary Trent Jr. caught the ball, eluded a man and in front of the basket, in the three-point zone, threw to the delirium of him and all his Raptors teammates. The Wizards were stunned and angry at the loss to the cicada.
Gary Trent Jr., in addition to his winning trippy, played 31 minutes, scored 16 points and got 2 rebounds and the same number of assists. With this triumph, Toronto won two games in a row for the first time since mid-February (coming off solidly defeating Golden State 130-77).
