TORONTO (AP) Immanuel Quickley had a season-high 31 points and 13 assists, RJ Barrett scored 22 points, and the Toronto Raptors beat Washington 130-122 on Sunday night, handing the slumping Wizards their franchise-worst 64th loss of the season.

Kelly Olynyk scored 21 points and Gary Trent Jr. had 20 as the Raptors snapped an eight-game home losing streak and won consecutive games for the first time since a season-best three-game streak Feb. 22-26.

The Raptors stopped a 15-game losing streak on Thursday by winning 117-111 at Milwaukee.

“Two good wins,” Quickly said. “We have to continue to build off that.”

Quickley shot 9 for 15 and went 10 for 10 at the free-throw line as Toronto won a fourth straight home meeting with Washington.

“His ability to shoot the ball opens up a lot for everybody on this team,” Raptors coach Darko Rajakovic said.

Deni Avdija had 32 points and 10 rebounds, and Jordan Poole added 29 points and 12 assists for Washington. Corey Kispert scored 21 points and Patrick Baldwin had a season-best 16 points and a career-high 11 rebounds, but the Wizards lost for the sixth time in seven.

Washington (15-64) lost 63 games in 2000-01 and again in 2008-09. The Wizards have three games remaining.

“We’re all competitors,” interim Wizards coach Brian Keefe said. “Nobody wants to lose. Our organization is not about that, but we’re in the process of learning how to win.”

Washington forward Kyle Kuzma was not available because of a sprained right ankle, his fourth absence in the past five games. Forward Marvin Bagley III missed his third straight game because of a sprained right knee, and forward Anthony Gill sat because of right knee soreness.

Johnny Davis started for the Wizards but exited after six minutes because of a left hip contusion.

Toronto rookie Gradey Dick scored 13 points before leaving because of a sore right groin.

Washington had more turnovers (eight) than made baskets (five) in the first quarter. The Raptors scored 15 points off Wizards miscues to lead 42-17 after one period.

“I didn’t like the start,” Keefe said. “We’ve got to start better.”

Washington outscored Toronto 21-2 over the first seven minutes of the second as the Raptors missed 14 of 15 field goal attempts. Toronto recovered to make its next eight straight shots and led 63-50 at the half.

Poole scored 17 in the third but Barret answered with 11 for the Raptors. Toronto took a 99-87 lead to the fourth.
