Who’s Playing

Atlanta @ Toronto

Current Records: Atlanta 25-26; Toronto 27-23

What to Know

The Toronto Raptors and the Atlanta Hawks will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Feb. 4 at Scotiabank Arena without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Expect the scorekeeper to be kept busy: if their previous games are any indication, Toronto and Atlanta will really light up the scoreboard Friday.

The Chicago Bulls typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday the Raptors proved too difficult a challenge. Toronto won 127-120 over Chicago in overtime. Toronto’s power forward Pascal Siakam did his thing and dropped a double-double on 25 points and 13 boards in addition to seven dimes.

Meanwhile, the Hawks netted a 124-115 win over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday. It was another big night for Atlanta’s point guard Trae Young, who shot 6-for-11 from downtown and finished with 43 points and five assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Raptors are expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

The wins brought Toronto up to 27-23 and Atlanta to 25-26. Toronto is 14-12 after wins this year, Atlanta 13-11.
