Raptors vs. Hawks Game Thread: Looking to bounce back

New, comments

Ending a three-game road trip, the Raptors look to get one in Hotlanta.

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Atlanta Hawks Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Toronto Raptors go into tonight looking for something to feel good about. The last two games have been some low times for this young team — after getting blown out 41-10 in the third quarter in New York, the Raptors looked disjointed and lifeless in a 107-104 loss to Indiana.

So, they wrap this three-game road trip tonight in Atlanta. The 4-15 Hawks have been competitive, maybe even playing above their roster’s talent, but are still a lottery-bound team. They’re just built for it.

An on-fire (and likely pissed) Kyle Lowry going against Dennis Schroder should be fun. Hopefully, the Raptors can return home with a win, and some positive momentum.
