Wizards-Raptors Preview

TORONTO (AP) They won a second straight Atlantic Division title and set a franchise record with 49 victories. Both reasons to be proud, for sure. But it's what the Raptors do next, now the playoffs have arrived, that will determine whether this season is a success.

The Raptors, who lost a Game 7 heartbreaker to Brooklyn in the first round last year, will try to advance for just the second time in their 20-year history when they face the Washington Wizards. Game 1 is Saturday in Toronto.

"This is the ultimate goal, to get to this point and build from here on out," guard DeMar DeRozan said Friday. "Last year we got a chance to play against a great veteran team and learn. This time it's time to keep making steps forward. We can't make steps back, we've got to keep going forward and continue to get better."
