Friday December 29, the Atlanta Hawks travel to play the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Center. The Hawks arrive on the heels of an upset victory over the Wizards. The Raptors who began the week in first place have lost two in a row to the Mavericks and Thunder.
In their previous meeting this season the Raptors beat the Hawks soundly. Last season, the squads played three times with the Hawks taking two of the three contests. The Hawks hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors 45 of their 83 matches.
The Hawks are on a mini two- game win streak having beat the Mavericks and Wizards in their last two games. Dennis Schroder led his Hawks with 21 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists in the win versus the Wizards.
Ersan Ilyasova posted an impressive stat line of 20 points, 9 rebounds, (4 offensive boards) and shot 3 of 7 from deep. Marco Belinelli pitched in with 19 points in the victory.
Two Raptor killers are likely to miss the game due to injury. Mike Muscala has an ankle injury and is on assignment to rehab the injury. His status is unknown for the game. Dewayne Dedmon will definitely miss the match after suffering a tibia stress injury.
In the previous meeting between the squads it was coincidentally just after the Raptors lost two games in a row. Since then the Raptors had lost just once until their recent two consecutive losses. In that win the Raptors held the Hawks to the lowest point total by an opponent (78) while delivering 112 points against Atlanta.
DeMar DeRozan delivered his best efforts last week notably securing his career high in points (45) with six treys. This week DeRozan has struggled in the two losses shooting 7 of 32 combined. Look for him to get back on track in this game.
The Raptors have not lost three games in a row all season and boast the NBA’s best home record 12-1, so will look to extend that streak versus the Hawks.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction: Go with the home court
It might seem like a ton of points to afford the home squad after two consecutive losses. That said, the Raptors bested the Hawks on Atlanta’s court immediately after they lost two games in a row earlier this season. In that win the point differential was 34 points for the Raptors.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -11
Atlanta is playing better of late, but the Raptors are keen to protect their home court prowess and won’t make the same mistake they made in Dallas. Also of note, the Raptors haven’t lost three games in a row all season, don’t expect them to start now.
