Toronto at Atlanta
After watching all of the Raptors games this year , there’s a big disappointment surrounding this team. So many expectations and the results are still to come …
Raptors will be trying to avoid a fifth straight loss and reverse a recent trend of flat performances when playing on consecutive nights when they visit Atlanta on Wednesday. Toronto (7-12) has lost five straight on the road, and is 0-3 when playing the second half of a back-to-back this season with those losses coming by an average of more than 25 points. Every single b2b game they have completely colapsed in the 2nd half.
The last match ups between thes teams show pretty much relatively low scoring games ( except the last one where both teams shot over 50%FG in Toronto) :
TOR 110 – ATL 118
ATL 87 – TOR 84
TOR 93 – ATL 88
ATL 110 – TOR 92
The Hawks have also had problems offensively lately, failing to reach 90 points in any of their three recent losses. After averaging 25.6 trips to the free throw line in the first 13 games, they’ve been held to 13.0 free throw attempts per game in their last four, including just eight against Detroit.
Leading scorer Joe Johnson did not get to the line Sunday and had his worst shooting performance of the season, going 5 of 19 (26.3 percent) from the field and missing all five of his 3-point attempts.
