There aren't a whole lot of expectations for the Toronto Raptors, one of two expansion teams that entered the league this season. So one would think that playing for Toronto would be a no-pressure job, a chance in which a team consisting mainly of NBA castoffs could ease through the season without perhaps the urgency to win right away.Run that scenario by former NBA All-Star Isiah Thomas, the team's vice president of basketball operations, and you are greeted with a slight scowl."This organization, there will be pressure to succeed and pressure to perform," Thomas said.

WASHINGTON - It's a good thing Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan listens to his assistant coaches or the Toronto Raptors would have been in even bigger trouble last night. Jordan wanted to hit the Raptors with a burst of defensive energy right off the bat last night, but his assistants suggested that he wait until late in the first period or the second before turning up the defensive pressure. As it happened, the Wizards held the Raptors to a Washington franchise low in blitzing Toronto, 86-60, before a sellout crowd at MCI Center.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When the Philadelphia 76ers last had the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft a decade ago, they dealt the pick in what turned out to be one of the worst blunders in franchise history. There were no deals last night, as the team addressed its strong need for a point guard.And that point guard turned out to be Allen Iverson, who became the first point guard selected with the top pick since the Los Angeles Lakers took Magic Johnson in 1979. The Sixers did so after fielding some offers for the pick, including one in which the Washington Bullets offered a package that included Philadelphia native Rasheed Wallace.

WASHINGTON - The joke around MCI Center recently suggested that a Washington Wizards promotion featuring a Kwame Brown bobblehead doll was getting more air time than the 19-year-old rookie was getting playing time. That could change today, when Brown is expected to join the starting lineup at power forward in place of veteran Christian Laettner, who suffered a broken fibula in his left leg during Friday night's 96-80 victory over the New York Knicks. Laettner is expected to be out a month.

How quickly the Detroit Pistons' three-game, season-opening winning streak has been forgotten.The Pistons had lost five straight games before beating Phoenix on Friday night. The slump only intensified the finger-pointing, with Grant Hill laying blame on Bison Dele (formerly Brian Williams), and Jerry Stackhouse attributing the team's problems to Hill.It's not only Hill who has been unhappy with Dele. The whole team is upset with Dele's lethargic effort that has produced 10.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Opponent: Toronto RaptorsSite: SkyDome, TorontoTime: 7TV/Radio: HTS/WWRC (980 AM)Outlook: With ninth-place Cleveland playing in New York tonight, this is another opportunity for the Bullets to create some space in the standings. The Bullets, with Sunday's victory in Boston, have won 11 of their last 14 games. But they can't overlook a Toronto team that, while last in the Central Division, always plays tough at home. Chicago, the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston, Utah and Miami are among the teams that have been beaten in Toronto this season.

TORONTO -- Just when it seemed the Washington Bullets were close to becoming a healthier team, along comes another setback. Mark Price, in just his third game back, was unable to play in the second half of last night's game against the Toronto Raptors after complaining of a sore left foot.But it's unlikely that even a healthy Price would have been much help to the Bullets. Forced to play an unsuccessful game of catch-up, Washington fell to the Raptors, 106-100, before 25,432 at SkyDome.The loss broke a two-game winning streak for the Bullets, who face the difficult task tomorrow of attempting to beat the best team in basketball, the Chicago Bulls (29-3)
