Hawks-Raptors Preview

The question here is, can the Hawks continue their recent success on the road by beating a team that has proved to be difficult the past two years. The hawks are 2-3 over the last five games against the Raptors, and the Hawks still see the Raptors two more times this season after tonight. Although the 2-3 record might not seem daunting, the Hawks were beaten by double digits in all of their losses. Furthermore, the Hawks have struggled to guard the Raptors backcourt specifically SG DeMar DeRozan. For the Hawks to win this game they will need strong performances from Jeff Teague, and Dennis Schröder. The Hawks will also need to control the boards, which is where my key player for the game comes in. Newly acquired Kris Humphries will need to put up 10+ points and 5+ rebounds for the Hawks to walk away with a win over the Raptors. if the Hawks win tonight they will win four of their five games on their final west coast road trip.
