9:22 p.m.: The Wizards are playing the foul game now. This could be a long final minute....
Birch knocks down two and it's 108-98 with 57.4 seconds left.
9:19 p.m.: 57 seconds to play. Toronto lead 105-98.
9:14 p.m.: Washington cut it to six before the Raptors get a stop that leads to....you guessed it, a FVV bucket down the other end. The pressure was beginning to mount but this makes things a fraction more comfortable.
105-97 with 2:28 on the clock. VanVleet has a season-high 32 and counting.
9:06 p.m. VanVleet is having his way out there at the moment. First he knock down a jumper that banked in, then he draws a switch onto Avdija and takes him straight to the paint where he is fouled.
30 points and counting for Fred as the Raptors lead 103-95 with 4:18 left on the clock.
9:03 p.m.: 10-point game. Six minutes to play. Can the Raptors close it out?
8:59 p.m.: B2BBB!! (Back-to-back Birch buckets).
Toronto lead 98-86 with 7:24 to play.
8:54 p.m.: Caldwell-Pope is called for a technical foul after arguing a call getting tangled up with Achiuwa. The crowd isn't happy but VanVleet makes the most of the free-throw.
Big few minutes coming up with the Raptors still leading by eight.
8:50 p.m.: Dalano Banton isn't always in control but he's always trying to make something happen. The second he gets the ball he's off to the races. He gets fouled taking the ball coast-to-coast and knocks down one free-throw to give the Raps the 91-81 lead.
End of the third - Raptors 86, Wizards 77
8:46 p.m.: Fred couldn't get one to bank in at the buzzer but the Raptors were able to keep their lead hovering around the double-digit mark heading into the last.
8:43 p.m.: Precious Achiuwa just about brought the rim down on a HUGE jam!
Crossing over Montrezl Harrell, Achiuwa put the ball on the floor and threw down the one hand slam over Kispert. Whew, maybe that will get him going.
MY GOODNESS! @PreciousAchiuwa pic.twitter.com/sVZIqDqzkC- Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) November 4, 2021
8:43 p.m.: The Wizards have announced Kyle Kuzma will not return to the game with a right arm contusion.
8:42 p.m.: The Toronto offence is all Fred right now! He has 14 points in the period and 25 overall. The lead is 84-75 with 1:22 remaining in the third quarter.
8:38 p.m.: VanVleet drills a triple out of the timeout and they needed it.
8: 35 p.m.: Washington are able to generate consecutive stops and work their way back into the game. Beal drills a triple from the left corner and Nurse immediately calls time. Beal is up to 17 points and Toronto's lead has been cut to 76-71 with 3:25 left in the quarter.
8:26 p.m.: With Siakam and Barnes out of the lineup, there's not much scoring punch of the bench for Toronto. The bench points count favours Washington 19-6 but it hardly matters with the Raptors starters putting in work.
Toronto are keeping a healthy edge and lead 72-56 with 7:21 to play in the third.
I ain't NEVA seen you act like this before 👀 @OAnunoby pic.twitter.com/WWhwoaT4ax- Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) November 4, 2021
8:22 p.m.: It's worth noting Khem Birch started the second half for Toronto. Achiuwa has been struggling over the last few games...I wonder if this is forcasting the potential starting group moving forward.
By the way, VanVleet has a personal 7-0 run and the lead is out to a game-high 16 points at 66-50 early in the third.
8:19 p.m.: One steal and two deflections to start the second half for Toronto. Remember the way they started the third quarter against the Knicks?
NIck Nurse has this team engaged out of the breaks.
Halftime - Raptors 59, Wizards 48
8:03 p.m.: Trent Jr. takes it coast-to-coast and finishes through Dinwiddie contact for the and-1 with 0.3 left on the clock!
The free-throw is converted and the Raps will take an 11-point lead into the half.
Trent Jr. and Mykhailiuk each have 13 points to lead Toronto. Beal has 13 points, four rebounds and five assists for Washington.
Ain't nothin over there 👀 @FredVanVleet pic.twitter.com/eQGvQje8kz- Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) November 3, 2021
7:51 p.m.: The Raps are COOKING!
Mykhailiuk makes a triple on the push and dish from Malachi Flynn. Four of the five Toronto starters are in double-digit scoring led by Svi with 13.
The Raptors lead 56-42 with 3:03 to play in the first half.
7:46 p.m.: Remember when I said Anunoby was scoreless a few minutes ago?
He's now got 12 points...that happened quickly. Toronto have a game-high eight point lead.
7:42 p.m.: Khem Birch is working on the glass. He has three offensive boards on the night. He wasn't able to finish his own work under the basket but Chris Boucher came flying in for the tip. The Wizards are 1-for-5 to start the second and Toronto now lead 37-31 with 8:07 to play in the second.
7:37 p.m.: Here comes the pesky Raptors defence. Anunoby picks up the steal and dunks down the other end to get the second period started.

End of the first - Raptors 29, Wizards 29
7:35 p.m.: I don't it was shock anyone to say this game has been played at a fast tempo. Both teams are looking to get out and run and score in transition.
Trent Jr. leads the Raptors with 10 points, while Fred VanVleet has dished out four assists already.
7:28 p.m.: Timeout on the floor with the Raptors trailing 23-22. Raul Neto has provided a nice spark for the Wizards off the bench. He's got seven points on 3-for-3 shooting while also adding an assist and picking up a steal.
7:25 p.m.: Give Trent Jr. another bucket. He knocks down a triple and has 10 on the night. It's all square at 18-18 with 3:30 to play in the first.
OG Anunoby is scoreless through nine minutes after a career-high 36 against the Knicks.

7:23 p.m.: Trent Jr. knocks down the midrange jumper. He has seven points early on the back of a big night in New York against the Knicks.
7:18 p.m.: Watching the Wizards still feels a little strange early in the season with so many new faces. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope finishes a transition layup and then Spencer Dinwiddie nails a triple. The Wizards had locked things up at 7-7 before the Raptors got back-to-back threes from Gary Trent Jr. and Svi Mykhailiuk.
Toronto lead 13-7 at the first timeout with 6:54 to play. Both teams are getting up and down the court to start.
7:11 p.m.: What a way to start! VanVleet throws a lob to the rolling Precious Achiuwa who throws it down with the right hand. Nick Nurse draws up a play to get his big man going early.
7:10 p.m.: We are underway in Washington!
The Raptors sticking with the same starting five that got the win in New York two nights ago.
