Michael Grange @michaelgrange
“This is what we signed up for.” Fred VanVleet is good with the Raptors rotation; Nick Nurse obviously is; and the Raptors dug deep for a key win. The situation is manageable: sportsnet.ca/nba/article/ra…12:11 AM

Bradley Beal on the Wizards’ 18 TOs, of which he had 9: “That’s 100% on my ass.” – 11:11 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Barnes on getting subbed out after 2 minutes: “I guess (Nurse) saw something that I didn’t see and just pulled me out of the game.”
Scottie said he was trying to be aggressive and attack when he came back in, and VanVleet saw an action that was working and kept feeding him. – 11:07 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Scottie Barnes on a recent ESPN post that identified him as a ‘screener’: “I just thought it was funny.”
“I’m still developing my game… My game’s gonna keep expanding, so I’m not really limiting my game to one aspect because as time goes on my game’s gonna continue to grow.” – 10:57 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Fred VanVleet on minutes-gate: “If I didn’t want to be out there, I wouldn’t be. I’m not playing any minutes that I don’t want to play. Coach Nurse is not forcing anybody to play that doesn’t want to play. We signed up for this… So I wouldn’t put all of that on him.” – 10:49 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
“We need these guys to come back to a warm welcome and a packed house.” – VanVleet on Norm (and others). Blazers are in Portland on Sunday, and Powell has missed time for personal reasons. – 10:41 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
“I’m not playing any minutes I don’t want to play,” said Fred VanVleet, the NBA’s minutes leader. “We sign up for this and we got high character guys, competitive guys that like to be out there and whatever comes with that comes with that we’ve all accepted that.” pic.twitter.com/CsJVKQvCad10:41 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
“If I didn’t want to be out there, I wouldn’t be. I’m not playing any minutes I don’t want to play.” – VanVleet

A lot of little mistakes that added up. Kuzma was missed tonight. Lack of shooting hurt too because Toronto won’t let you beat them with drives. Defensively they just didn’t play the personnel at all in the second and third quarters. – 10:21 PM

The Raptors are back over .500 and pass Boston and Washington in the standings. They also win the season series vs the Wizards and will have the tiebreaker, which could come in handy considering how tight that play-in race is right now. – 10:16 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Wizards lose a tough one to the Raptors defined by their own mistakes. They erased an 18-pt deficit to tie the game at 102-102 with 1:10 left, only to allow a quick 3 by Fred VanVleet and a backbreaking off reb/putback to OG Anunoby. They also had 18 TOs. – 10:15 PM

(1/2) The Raptors began tonight second in the NBA in forcing turnovers at 16.0 per game. That’s especially impressive considering that they play at one of the league’s slowest paces. Through three quarters tonight, the Wizards have 15 turnovers, leading to 23 Raptors points. – 9:43 PM

Raps up 91-77 after 3. It’s 71-47 after the last two quarters. Barnes feasting, VanVleet orchestrating. – 9:42 PM

Scottie Barnes: Still good at basketball, despite any recent wobbles. Having a hell of a game tonight. – 9:36 PM
Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Scottie Barnes is defending 1 through 5 on one end of the floor, and he just played bully ball at the rim to score on center Thomas Bryant on the other. Career-high 26 points for him. Special young player. – 9:36 PM

Career high 26, and counting, for Scottie Barnes. – 9:35 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
New career-high for Scottie Barnes; he’s got 26 points, and there’s still 14+ minutes left in this game. His previous high mark of 25 points came in Boston in his 2nd NBA game. – 9:35 PM

Raptors close the half on a 28-14 run. Some great defensive work from VanVleet, Trent and Barnes. Scottie had 10 of his 17 points in the 2nd quarter; he’s been dominant. Just 7 first-half points for the bench, but the starters are doing the heavy lifting again. Raps by 1. – 9:02 PM
