    Default VS Atlanta Gameday thread.

    The Raptors were a big game but Atlanta is an even bigger test tonight.

    The two games these teams have played previously were both blowouts, one for each side, with the most recent taken by Cleveland. The Hawks have lost like maybe a few games since that defeat though. They've already secured a playoff spot.

    The biggest thing to me will be integrating our bigs to stop their frontcourt. IMO I expect a rough game for TT as he is not a physical defender, if he's matched up against Millsap coming off the bench it might get ugly but I expect a good fight for rebounds. I also question Love's toughness to defend Millsap. Mozgov has been impressive but it's going to be a long night if we expect him to bang with both Horford AND Millsap. Watch for him to flirt with foul trouble tonight.

    IMO our standout players (Kyrie, LeBron, Love, even JR) are capable of taking a game over and scoring a ton of points. The Hawks biggest weakness, IMO, is they don't have a volume scorer really... Horford and Teague (The Mike Conley of the East) both have PER of 21+ right now. Insane. (I think 15 is "NBA Average")

    I predict a win for the good guys, and we climb to within 10 games of first place.

    Have to agree. Cavs win.


    I think Blatt is still tinkering a bit but listening to the players lather him with praise and effusive slobbering over their chemistry with him yesterday I think we will peak right as we enter the playoffs.

    This will be a great test for us as we continue to battle for second place.

    Championship incoming.

    I can't stand it when a player whines to me or his teammates or his wife or the writers or anyone else.

    Atlanta really shares the ball well.

    Their bench killed us
    Always remember sports are like women:
    High School all the girls play,
    NCAA only good looking girls play,
    Pro's only the Super Models play !

    Atlanta has one of the best bench in the NBA.

    Clevelands Bench: 27 pts, -35 +/-
    Atlanta's Bench: 37 pts, +15 +/-

    That 10 points is pretty much the difference so yeah their bench did well. In particular I'm really impressed with Bazemore. Dude came out of nowhere it seems.

    Delly -11... I swear he's always a negative in the box score, and he's -.05 for the year. A PER of 7.2

    To be clear, that's LESS than HALF of the league average (15)

    I have to say, he's scrappy but he's not a very effective PG...

    No one took the bait. he wanted to play from all i heard, unlike the guy with 2 first names Ray Allen.
