Forget the TNT match-up.

Forget the recent winning streak, three straight in fact.

It's the third and final meeting between the Toronto Raptors and Atlanta Hawks, and yep, the second-last game of the 2012-13 NBA season for the Dinos.

Jonas Valanciunas is back in action tonight after sitting out a few with a neck injury, and Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan have been playing their best basketball of the season of late as a duo.

This Hawks team is no pushover of course, so this should again represent a good test for the Raps, who are trying to close out their season showing the NBA that come next season, this will be a team to be wreckoned with.

GO RAPS!
