The Washington Wizards led by 23 points in the third quarter, by 10 entering the fourth quarter, then by 16 with 7:15 left in the game.
Then the Raptors finished the game on a 21-1 run as Washington collapsed under the pressure from Toronto, and the Raptors got the 111-107 win. At the heart of that comeback was Pascal Siakam, who finished the night with 39 points and a tremendous all-around game.

Give the Raptors credit for their fight. Scottie Barnes, who has taken a step forward this season, added 19 for Toronto.
However, this was the Wizards imploding. This sequence sums things up best as Kyle Kuzma leaves a defensive play to tell his coach to review something.

Toronto improves to 5-5 on the young season. Washington is 2-8, and fans should check out the G-League Ignite schedule to watch Ron Holland play because he might be your top pick next season.
