TORONTO (AP) — The Toronto Raptors turned in their best 3-point shooting performance of the season. The Washington Wizards had one of their worst.

OG Anunoby scored 15 points and Fred VanVleet had 13 as Toronto posted its third straight win over the Wizards and improved its NBA-leading record to 16-4.

Kyle Lowry also got the night off for the Raptors, who don't play again in Toronto until the season-opener Oct. 17 against Cleveland.
