Belinelli and Ilyasova combined to hit four 3-pointers in the third quarter that helped shift the tone from physical and foul-filled to a long-distance game that allowed the Sixers to put away this one.

Drake doubled down on his warning to Wall, replying, "FREE SMOKE TMRW NIGHT", implying that the Raptors would give Wall and the Wizards more than they could handle in Game 1.

John Wall paced the Wizards with 23 points and 15 assists, while Markieff Morris added 22 points and 11 rebounds in the defeat.

The Raptors were without vital reserve Fred Van Vleet on Saturday.

Toronto went on a 10-0 run in the fourth quarter with DeRozan on the bench.

Toronto's mascot held aloft a flag that read "BENCH BROSKIS" and sprinted the length of the court to celebrate a trey that put the Raptors up by 12, and helped seal an important 114-106 win in this first-round National Basketball Association playoff series.

DeRozan scored 17 points, C.J. Miles and OG Anunoby each had 12 and Kyle Lowry had 11 points and nine assists for the Raptors, whose only previous victory in the opening game of a playoff series came in the second round at Philadelphia on May 6, 2001.

TORONTO (AP) - For the first time in nearly 17 years, the Toronto Raptors are off to a winning start in a playoff series. The undrafted backup point guard, who has evolved into the leader of Toronto's top-rated bench, was still recovering from a shoulder bruise suffered in the regular season finale.

In the second half, Wall's output slowed.

An X-ray came back negative, and he was listed at day-to-day following the injury.

If you paid attention to the Raptors in the regular season (or read this story), you know all about their "culture reset" and offensive transformation: Despite finishing sixth in offensive rating last season, they installed a completely new system in training camp, one which required their primary scorers to sacrifice touches, empower their teammates and move without the ball.

But then. things changed. "They're not a normal eight seed".

"Playoff games are tough", Casey said. "It's the same role they've played all year", Casey said.

"We're not going to look at them like they're the eighth seed because we understand what this team is capable of", DeRozan said. Miles had four, while Ibaka and Wright hit three apiece.

"They are the No. 1 seed for a reason", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. He assisted on all three of Ibaka's long-range makes and one of O.G. Anunoby's, too. "Serge Ibaka is one of the best, if not the best, big man shooter in the league".

The Raptors host Game 2 on Tuesday.
