Wall: 'We love our chances' at forcing Game 7

The Wizards must win Game 6 at home on Friday against the Raptors to keep their season alive, a feat John Wall said his team can accomplish.

In the final three minutes, John Wall took just one shot and Bradley Beal had two shot attempts as the Raptors turned a four-point game into a 10-point win. Washington simply cannot win with its two stars getting three shots in the last three minutes.

The Wizards didn't play a great half but they have to be thrilled with where they are heading into the third. They trail by one despite DeMar DeRozan having scored 20 points in the first half. John Wall and Bradley Beal have 20 points combined so far. Beal got off to a quiet start before heading into halftime more active with eight points, three rebounds and three assists. The Wizards had seven turnovers but they only led to four Raptors' points.

The Wizards' bigs have been quiet scoring-wise but Washington only trails by one at the half due in part to the Wizards' hustle on the glass. Washington has nine offensive rebounds and has outscored Toronto, 7-0, in second-chance points.

The Raptors have harped on their uncharacteristic turnovers during the series -- particularly in Game 4 -- after ranking 4th in the NBA this season in protecting the ball. They have turned the ball over at a higher rate than any team in the postseason. With 5:19 before halftime, the Raptors have squandered only two possessions. They lead 41-35.

Wall expects 'very emotional' Game 5 in Toronto (0:27)

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

John Wall and Bradley Beal are expecting the atmosphere in the Air Canada Centre to be incredibly emotional after the tragedy in the city. "I think it is going to be very emotional," Wall said. "There were some sad things that happened that you wish happens nowhere. Nobody knows what anybody is going through or the reason why they do certain things. [As] athletes or just being a people in this world, something you never want to see is a tragedy." Beal said, "I'm sure the city is going to round up together. This is a good event for everybody to come together and try to keep their mind off of it. It's a tragic event, we want to send out prayers to all the families that were affected and the city itself because regardless of where you are in the world, nobody wishes that on nobody. So my condolences to everybody and to the city of Toronto. We just got to focus on the game as much as we can. As tough as a situation it is, that is what both teams have to go through at the end of the day."
