The Wizards finished second in the Southeast at 46-36, while the Raptors won the Atlantic Division with a 49-33 record.
All five Washington starters average more than 11 points per game. Point guard John Wall led the Eastern Conference with 10 assists per game and scored a team-high 17.6 points per game.
Wizards forward Paul Pierce ruffled feathers in Toronto with some smack talk before the start of the series.
"We haven't done particularly well against Toronto, but I don't feel they have the 'It' that makes you worried,'' Pierce told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan. "There isn't a team I look at in the Eastern Conference that makes me say, 'They are intimidating, we don't have a chance.'"
Toronto won all three meetings between the two teams during the regular season.
