The Raptors currently trail the Wizards as they head into Game 3 tonight (April 24).
In last year’s playoff series against Brooklyn, Pierce blocked Kyle Lowry’s final shot of Game 7 to lift the Nets into the second round. The Raptors are trailing by two games in the best-of-seven series. Game 3 goes Friday night at 8 p.m. in Washington. (680 News)
