Atlanta Hawks vs Toronto Raptors

March 23, 2014

TSN - 1:00 PM EST

How do you respond to heartbreak?

We'll find out today as the Toronto Raptors look to put their gut-wrenching loss on Friday night at the hands of the OKC Thunder behind them, and prepare for round two against the Atlanta Hawks.

Or actually round four.

The Hawks beat the Dinos earlier this week and are up two games to one in the season series, the final game being played tonight.

More important than this season series though, is simply getting a win. Despite some solid offensive performances of late, the Raptors have lost three of their last four games, and suddenly, not only are they tied for third with the Chicago Bulls in the East, but the Brooklyn Nets are only a game and a half back too!

We missed previewing this one today as I think our crew was hungover from Friday night's thriller and the barrage of NCAA ball, but from the last time these clubs met, the Dinos need to do a better job effort-wise for 48 minutes, need to take care of the ball (15 turnovers last game) and need to keep Jeff Teague on the perimeter as much as possible. His dribble penetration was a huge reason the Raps let a potential W get away.
