===============================================

Key Possessions which determined the W-L result:

- the entire 2nd Quarter (where TOR outscored Was, 33-18)

Key Raptors: Jason Kapono (6 pts; 3-4, FGA; 2 O-Rbs), Andrea Bargnani (9 pts; 2-2, FGA; 1-1, 3FGA; 4-4, FTA; 1 Rb) and Rasho Nesterovic (6 pts; 3-3, FGA; 4 Rbs)

Vital Components:
- in the decisive 2nd Quarter
Tor/33 pts; 12-22, FGA (54.5%); 3-5, 3FGA (9 pts); 6-6, FTA; 14 Rbs (3 O-Rbs/6pts); 1 TO
WAS/18 pts; 6-18, FGA (33.3%); 4-10, 3FGA (12 pts); 2-2, FTA; 11 Rbs; 5 TO

… meaning that the Raptors scored 6 pts more than the Wizards did during this specific sequence in the game as a direct result of 2nd Chance Opportunities; got to the FT Line more (6-2); outrebounded Washington (14-11), and won the Turnover battle (1-5) … to put the game away prior to half-time.

Next Game:
