Game Day: Raptors vs. Hawks

NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Hawks Game Notes

From NBA.com: The Toronto Raptors haven’t played this well before the All-Star break since Chris Bosh’s final season north of the border, but in no way does that mean they’re satisfied.

They’ll look to head into the long weekend on a positive note by ending a five-game home losing streak to the struggling Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.

Toronto (27-25) leads the Atlantic Division by three games and is enjoying its best run before the break since going 29-23 in 2009-10. It is coming off a 108-101 home victory over New Orleans on Monday after dropping three of four to end a five-game road trip.

Patrick Patterson – starting in place of the injured Amir Johnson – scored a season-high 22 points, while Kyle Lowry added 19 and 12 assists.
