Toronto Raptors Team Report – November 8

=== Toronto Raptors Team Report – November 8 ===

(Sports Network) – Toronto lost for the second time in the last five games, as
the Raptors were defeated soundly Friday by the Washington Wizards, 86-60.

Vince Carter paced Toronto with 18 points and Jerome Williams added five
points and 13 rebounds, as the Raptors suffered through a franchise-record low
for points in a quarter when they scored just four points in the second.

Toronto also set a franchise mark for futility with only 23 first-half points,
as the Raptors strengthened their hold on the dubious honor of lowest-scoring
team in the NBA.

Toronto had defeated the Wizards earlier this season, winning 82-79 on
Halloween at Air Canada Centre.

The Raptors are off until Sunday when they will host rookie sensation
Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets.
