This should be a win for the Raps provided we come out aggressive from the start. Prediction is 103-92 for a Raps W

One of the hottest teams in the league fighting for their playoff lives, playing at home......nothing is a given.

I'll give you playing at home for their playoff lives. But one of the hottest teams in the league? No. They are 4-6 in their last 10. Yes those 4 all came together for a 4-win streak. They squeaked past Utah and Milwaukee, and Denver on a back to back, and now Charlotte. Hardly newsworthy.

But of course they can't be taken lightly. No team should be. And DS said as much in his post.

Your post sounds like you're ready to wave the white flag already.

No, just saying they've won 4 in a row, fighting to stay in 8th and are at home. I think we should win the game but at this time of year playing a team like this nothing is a given. I have a feeling this one will be close. One good thing is that they played tonight.


Me saying nothing is a given = waving a white flag? lol

No, it was you responding to a measured post that suggested only that if Toronto comes out aggressive they should win, by exaggerating Atlanta's strength. Put the white flag away. Nobody said anything was a given.

The Hawks are on a back to back and they're struggling. There's no reason why we shouldn't bounce back and win this game going away

You're right, my bad. Before that they lost 13 of 14 I believe, but they hit a soft part of their schedule the last 4 games outside of Charlotte. I still like our chances if we play defence.

?? Going to be a tough game. We will be lucky to win. Milsap is back and they are playing well (not sure how long he was gone for but was a short time), lost to LAC and GSW then won 4 in a row. Different team right now and more like the one that was in 3rd.

Maybe you shouldn't count your chickens before they hatch. I see your cliche and raise you a cliche.

They gave up a big lead to utah, and just managed to beat them by 2. And came from behind to beat Milwaukee by 5. They are tremendous right now.
