Through 3 Quarters
The Toronto Raptors are just one quarter away from delivering their fans the win they’ve been expecting. Either team is in a position to win, but they lead against the Atlanta Hawks 89-83.

What to Know
The Atlanta Hawks have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Toronto Raptors at 7:30 p.m. ET Tuesday at Scotiabank Arena after having had a few days off. Toronto will need to watch out since the Hawks have now posted big point totals in their last five contests.
Atlanta was able to grind out a solid victory over the Brooklyn Nets this past Saturday, winning 122-115. It was another big night for Atlanta’s point guard Trae Young, who dropped a double-double on 36 points and ten assists in addition to six boards. Young’s night made it three games in a row in which he has scored at least 30 points.
Meanwhile, Toronto was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Sunday as they fell 114-109 to the Miami Heat. Despite the loss, Toronto had strong showings from power forward Pascal Siakam, who had 29 points and five assists along with eight rebounds, and point guard Fred VanVleet, who had 29 points and seven assists. This also makes it four games in a row in which VanVleet has had at least three steals.
The Hawks are expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Everything went Atlanta’s way against the Raptors in the teams’ previous meeting in February as they made off with a 127-100 win. The rematch might be a little tougher for Atlanta since the team won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
