Preview: Hawks @ Raptors

Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat
Kent Bazemore (


Tonight, the Atlanta Hawks face the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. The Hawks are coming off a big victory against the Washington Wizards 113-97, which is the first time the Hawks have won two games in a row this season. The Hawks have a big task tonight though, facing Kyle Lowery (16.1 ppg), DeMar DeRozan (24.1 ppg) Serge Ibaka (13.8 ppg) and Jonas Valanciunas (11.0 ppg) who are all great contributors to the Raptors success this season. The Raptors currently sit in the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference and basketball analysts don’t really speak much of them. We are hoping that the Hawks can continue this win streak tonight as we can see the team is really getting used to one another. One player we should continue to look at is Taurean Prince. He is getting more confident in his game and his playing style. He’s proving that he can hit three pointers at a consistent rate and using his 6’8 frame to make his way to the basket.
