The Raptors and Wizards have developed a rivalry in the Atlantic division over the last couple of seasons, with Washington knocking the Raptors out of the Eastern Conference playoffs last season.
The bad blood led the Toronto Raptors mascot, “The Raptor”, pull out all the stops while trying to help the team win a close game against the Wizards on Wednesday night, including flashing John Wall during some crucial late free throws.
It looks like a dinosaur with the body of a buxom human woman is what it take to distract the point guard as Wall only made one of his two free throw attempts during that trip to the line. Toronto held on to win by three and prevented Washington form pulling back to .500 on the season.
