The Atlanta Hawks play host to the Toronto Raptors at the State Farm Arena on Sunday night. Here’s a Hawks vs Raptors Prediction.

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have been in a real slump as they've lost eight of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a four-game slide after getting thrashed by the Clippers in a 127-107 home defeat on Friday. Scottie Barnes led the team with 23 points, RJ Barrett added 22 points with six rebounds and four assists while Gary Trent Jr and Dennis Schroder each scored 13 points. As a team, the Raptors shot 45 percent from the field and just six of 32 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace with the Clippers from the jump, allowing 66 points in the first half before they got blown out in the fourth quarter. The Raptors will face the Bulls after this game.

Toronto Raptors Player Facts

  • Gary Trent Jr. ranks 10th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for 3P% (41.5%) this season.
  • RJ Barrett ranks 49th amongst qualified players for points per game (19.2) this season.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in poor form as they are now looking to put an end to a four-game slide after getting beaten by the Mavericks in a 148-143 loss on Friday. Trae Young led the team with 30 points and 11 assists, Jalen Johnson added 25 points, Bogdan Bogdanovic tallied 24 points off the bench while Dejounte Murray chipped in with 22 points and seven assists. As a team, the Hawks shot 52 percent from the field and 15 of 34 from the 3-point line which are good enough numbers to win most games, but the Hawks just had no answer for the Mavericks' Luka Doncic who exploded for 73 points on 25 of 33 shooting. The Hawks will take on the Lakers and Suns after this one.

Atlanta Hawks Player Facts

  • Trae Young ranks 2nd amongst qualified players for assists per game (10.8) this season.
  • Clint Capela ranks 11th amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (10.3) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for offensive rebounds per game this season (12.9).
  • The Hawks rank 1st in the league for field goal attempts per game this season (93.1).
  • The Raptors rank 2nd in the league for assists per game this season (29.5).
  • The Raptors rank 29th in the league for free throw percentage this season (73.7%).

Hawks vs Raptors Prediction

The Raptors are still without Immanuel Quickley, while the Hawks have listed Wesley Matthews and Trae Young as questionable. The Raptors have struggled all season and things have only gotten worse since they traded away Pascal Siakam, while the Hawks have lost four in a row and their confidence took another gut shot after allowing the Mavericks' Luka Doncic to torch them for 73 points on Friday. You couldn't back either team with much confidence these days, but I don't think the Hawks should be favored by this many points against anyone, so I'll take the Raptors here.
