Wednesday January 24, the Toronto Raptors arrive at Philips Arena to play the Atlanta Hawks. The Raptors had three days off after a rather strenuous schedule and a tough loss in Minnesota. The Hawks registered two solid wins versus the Spurs and Pelicans and enter the night following yet another win over the Jazz. This marks a stretch where the Hawks have played .500 ball (7 of 7).
Last season, the squads played three times with the Hawks winning two of three contests. This year the teams have played twice already with the Raptors winning both. The Hawks hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 45 of their 84 matches.
Following a series of wins the Raptor had an extremely trying stretch of seven games. In the first game Toronto lost by a single point to the Heat. Then the Raptors annihilated the Cavaliers and came back from 27 down to almost beat the Warriors who won on some questionable calls.
After playing last years finalists in succession the Raptors lost in Philly. Then Toronto captured back to back wins in tough defensive matches vs. Detroit and San Antonio.
They finished this tough stretch with another tough loss in Minnesota who were without Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford although the Wolves got assistance by getting 42-21 free throw attempts.
This game also marked Toronto’s final oppositie coast road game. Considering the Cavaliers(7), Heat (7) and Celtics (11) all entered the week with at least half of their opposite coast games to play this could prove to be a major factor.
Kyle Lowry who was injured in the overtime win vs. Brooklyn returned last week and is lighting teams up from the perimeter.
For a team who ranked 28th in the Association with 14 wins they’ve captured significant victories recently with wins over the Pelicans, Spurs and Jazz.
The lone loss came against the Bulls with Dennis Schroder (18) and Dewayne Dedmon (11) were the only two Hawks who scored in double digits.
Schroder has been particularly hot of late as he led his Hawks back from 14 and 19 point deficits versus the Spurs and Pelicans respectively. In addition he led his Hawks scoring 20 points in the victory over the Jazz.
In spite of their recent victories the Hawks entered the week ranked 22nd offensively and 26th defensively.
DeAndre’ Bembry (groin) remains out with no specific timeline for return.
