5 must-see moments from Wizards' loss to Toronto Raptors

5 must-see moments from Wizards' loss to Toronto Raptors

Here are five plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 114-106 loss to the Toronto Raptors at the Verizon Center on Friday night that are worth revisiting...

1. The Wizards and Raptors haven't developed much bad blood despite meeting in the playoffs two years ago and being so close to each other in the Eastern Conference. But you wouldn't know that by this sequence that saw Markieff Morris and Serge Ibaka mix it up.

Morris and Ibaka got tangled during a John Wall free throw and then had some words for each other:

Who would you take in a fight? I'll go with Keef.

2. Bradley Beal caught fire in the second quarter with 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting. Two of his made shots can be seen in this highlight here. Beal hit a three and caught a long pass from Wall for a layup all within a short span:

Beal finished with 27 points and a season-high seven rebounds.

3. Here's another Wall-to-Beal connection. Wall found Beal for an alley-oop in a halfcourt set:

4. This was Wall's best play of the night. He blocked Cory Joseph and had to adjust mid-air to do so:

5. Back to Morris. He ended up having the best dunk of the game, a two-handed slam that put Patrick Patterson on a poster:

The Wizards fell short in their comeback attempt after at one point trailing by 19 points and because of that the Raptors took the season series 2-1. They now hold the tiebreaker if the two finish with the same regular season record.

That's not good, but here's a pretty solid tweet from our @CSNWizards account:

See you Sunday, Wizards fans.

Troubling video of ex-NBA star Delonte West leads to suspension of Prince George's police officer

A Prince George's police officer was suspended after a troubling video emerged of his interaction with former NBA player and Eleanor Roosevelt alum Delonte West handcuffed after an alleged altercation.

The disturbing video showed West handcuffed on a sidewalk after getting involved in a physical conflict with a civilian. The off-screen officer was asking West questions on what happened to the events leading to him roughed up on the side of the road. West alleges that he was approached by a man with a gun. 

Prince George's police department announced that the video was filmed by a member of their department, leading to the officer's suspension. 

"Today at 12:15 pm, we learned the video that is currently on social media depicting the male in handcuffs was recorded by a Prince George’s County Police officer. The circumstances surrounding the recording and release of that video are now the subject of an internal investigation. That officer is now suspended pending the outcome of this investigation," the department said in a release.

Another disturbing video from a bystander shows the fight between the presumed West and another unidentified man. One man was standing over the other and continuously stomping on what appears to be West.

Meanwhile, West's former teammates and coaches took to social media to express their concerns.

West played eight years in the NBA across four franchises. He played his college ball at Saint Joseph's where he was teammates with Jameer Nelson and was coached by Phil Martelli.
