John Wall and Bradley Beal make up one of the best backcourts in the NBA.

Even if they don’t always play like it. Or get used in some odd ways at times by Randy Whittman.

Those two have stepped up and owned the backcourt battle in the first round of the NBA playoffs, outplaying Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. That’s not the only reason the Wizards are up 2-0 having won both games in Toronto, but it’s part of it.

Jenna Corrado asks if the Raptors guards can turn it around in this latest PBT Extra. The problem is the Raptors’ guards are not much defensively, much like he entire Raptors’ roster. And that is what has them in real trouble against the Wizards.
