The Toronto Raptors are back in action tonight as they play host to the Atlanta Hawks in their last game before the all-star break. The Raptors have a game and a half lead over the Hawks in the Eastern Conference and will look to add to that lead tonight. The Raptors are coming off a 108-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday. The Hawks have lost four in a row, including a 100-85 loss to the Chicago Bulls last night. This is the second of four meetings between the teams. The Hawks won the first meeting 102-95 on November 1.

Here are some notes for tonight's game:

  • Raptors forward Amir Johnson (ankle) will be a game-time decision. Patrick Patterson filled in for Johnson on Monday and scored a season-high 22 points in his first start with the Raptors.
  • DeMar DeRozan had 31 points on 14-23 shooting in the first meeting between the teams. 
  • Al Horford (Hawks) and Rudy Gay (Raptors) played in the first meeting between the teams. With Horford's injury and Gay being traded, both teams play and look a lot different since they last met.
  • Hawks forward Paul Millsap, who is headed to the all-star game this weekend, is averaging 17.7 points per game and 8.3 rebounds per game.
  • Hawks guard Kyle Korver has hit a three pointer in an NBA-record 118 consecutive games.

Projected Starters

Toronto Raptors: Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson/Patrick Patterson, Jonas Valanciunas

Atlanta Hawks: Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap, Gustavo Ayon

Tonight's game starts at 7 pm. ET and can be seen on TSN2.
