Coming off the Raptors’ biggest upset win of the season over the Celtics on Friday, they now face the soaring Hawks in Atlanta. The Hawks have won nine of their last 13 games and sit fifth in the Eastern Conference. At this point, they’re basically determining whether they play the Celtics or the Pacers in the first round.
This is a home-and-home series, meaning the Hawks are coming to Toronto tomorrow night. After Friday night’s ridiculousness, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Raptors won both games. I have no clue what to expect from this team anymore. Maybe that’s a good thing.
Neither Joseph nor I are available to recap tonight’s action, but I think Joseph will be able to recap tomorrow’s re-match.
