What you need to know about the Raptors
Toronto had its five-game winning streak snapped in a 114-109 loss to Miami on Sunday. The Raptors are now in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, trailing fifth-place Chicago by virtue of the tiebreaker. They are 2.5 games ahead of Cleveland in the standings, so they will avoid the play-in tournament barring a collapse in their final four games of the regular season.
The Raptors can officially clinch a playoff berth on Tuesday night, but they need a win and a Cleveland loss to Orlando. OG Anunoby, who averaged 16.0 points per game during the five-game winning streak, is questionable to play due to a bruised thigh. Toronto has covered the spread in 10 of its last 14 games this season.
What you need to know about the Hawks
Atlanta will be looking to extend its five-game winning streak following a 122-115 win over Brooklyn on Saturday. The Hawks have already clinched at least a berth in the play-in tournament, and they are one game ahead of Charlotte and Brooklyn for eighth place in the standings. They can keep their slim hopes of avoiding the play-in tournament alive with a win on Tuesday, but they would need to win four straight games and have Toronto lose four straight down the stretch.
Star guard Trae Young has scored at least 30 points in four of his last five games, picking up double-doubles in three of those contests. The Hawks continue to play without second-leading scorer John Collins due to a foot injury, while Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) and Danilo Gallinari (knee) are both questionable. Atlanta has covered the spread in all five games during its winning streak.
