John Wall: ‘We Love Our Chances’

by April 26, 2018

The Washington Wizards are facing playoff elimination, but John Wall loves his team’s chances of forcing a Game 7 against the Toronto Raptors.

Toronto grabbed a 3-2 series lead Wednesday night, sending the Wizards back to D.C. with a 108-98 loss, but Wall says his squad is confident heading into Game 6.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 32 points and Kyle Lowry added 17 points and 10 assists in the critical victory.

When asked to gauge his team’s chances of returning Sunday to Toronto for Game 7, John Wall answered with assurance.

“We love our chances,” Wall said. “We’re very confident. . . . It’s the best out of three, and for somebody to win the series they got to win on the road.”

The Wizards had a chance to do just that in Game 5 but squandered their best showing — albeit on a poor shooting night — in enemy territory.

“We just missed some shots. We feel like we got a lot of good ones,” Beal said about the Wizards’ 41.1-percent shooting and 5-for-26 mark from three-point range. “For the most [part], we feel like we didn’t shoot [well] or play a great game and still had an opportunity to win. They just made some bigger shots and big momentum plays down the stretch that really hurt us in the fourth.”
