An Eastern conference showdown that could go a long way come playoff seeding later in the season, the Atlanta Hawks travel north of the border to take on the Raptors.
Both teams will be playing on the second night of the back to back. The Raptors take on the Lakers, well the Hawks take on the Pistons.
The Raptors will have a slight advantage as they are playing at home on Friday and Saturday and don’t have to travel.
The Hawks are going to get into Toronto late as they have a game against the Pistons in Atlanta on Friday night.
One of the things to watch regarding the Hawks is if Paul Millsap is able to return. He was held out of the previous game with a hip injury and is considered questionable for the games this weekend.
Paul Millsap leads the team in scoring with 16.1 points per game and is shooting 43 percent from the field. If he is not able to play against the Raptors it’s a big blow the Hawks chances.
Atlanta has been a tail of two teams at home and on the road. At home the team is 6-2. Away from Atlanta the Hawks are 4-7.
On the road they score 5 less points per game and shoot two percent lower from the field.
The Raptors unlike the Hawks are about the same team no matter where they are playing. They have identical 6-3 records on the road and at home.
The Raptors offense has been scorching hot as of late and they are currently on a four game winning streak.
They aren’t just beating teams either, they are beating them with ease. Over the last four games, three of the wins have been by more then 12 points.
DeMar DeRozen has been the focal point of the Raptors offense this season. He is averaging 28.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game.
After being the sidekick to Kyle Lowry for the last few seasons, it seems DeRozen has taken the top spot on the team.
The Raptors on the second of a back to back have been 1-2 on the season, well the Hawks are 4-1.
