  • Game #....56 Raptors at Hawks Monday January 31st 7:30pm on SN1




    Not gonna lie.
    Writing this thread the day after that epic game
    and just watched the CMNT take it to the US.
    A touch wired.

    But what a game
    (the Miami one)

    Kind of felt a little like..



    But in the end...





    It was Jimmy's team that couldn't quite get that ball over the mountain

    So, Pascal had a moment.

    How 'bout Fred?



    Gary?



    OG?



    And Scottie?






    I'll take these five guys into any playoff series


    But for now, let's take them into Atlanta.

    It's a back to back for the Hawks after they just beat the Lebron-less Lakers
    Not technically a back to back for us, but....



    They may have played long enough to make this a back to back to back


    Technically the Hawks are below us in the standings but they're 7-3 in their last ten and on a roll.
    Lots of intresting players beyond Ice Trae.

    Should be a test of our "depth"
    ** cough, cough**Maybe we could borrow some of theirs, Masai**cough, cough**

    Six games to go until the trade deadline.
    Would be nice to go on a bit of a run instead of our recent pattern



    Hard to believe that on Monday, we play Atlanta, Miami plays Boston
    And then on Tuesday...
    Toronto against Miami both on the end of back to backs





    It may be tough to regroup after coming back down from that crazy adrenaline rush of a game.

    Maybe we just need a moment of Zen



    Go CMNT.

    and

    Go Raps.

        Will be very interesting to see if they have any legs.

        Would be good if the bench guys find a way to be more impactful throughout the game. Banton, Boucher and Precious should be able to log 20 minutes each. That would at least get our starters down to an average of 36.

          So wait a minute.. the Heat played a back to back, where both games were in Miami. Now Atlanta plays a back to back where both games are in Atlanta? I swear I've never seen that happen to Toronto before.

          We're always travelling for that second game.

            I think the heat game the other night was a make up game for a covid cancellation.. Not sure is Atlantas in the same boat

              The Bulls game was a make up game. The Heat and Hawks games weren't.

              Here are all the make up dates that were postponed due to covid:

                    I mentioned above that the Hawks were 7-3 in their last ten games but I don't think that serves them justice. They lost the first thee of those so they are on a 7 game win streak. Hot team coming in.

                      RR thread starters can hang with anybody. That bench depth, though....

                          Atlanta is either in a really nice hot streak that will eventually end, or they have turned the corner and rediscovered that conf finalist team they had. Either way, it looks to be another tough playoff like matchup tonight
