How Toronto Wins

Toronto will win this game if they keep playing great defense. Their opponents only average 97.2 points per game and that ranks 5th in the league. The Raptors also need to rebound the ball better. They average 51.3 rebounds per game and that ranks 17th in the league. The final thing they need to do is find a way to score more points. They average 100.5 points per game and that ranks 17th in the league.

 

How Atlanta Wins

Atlanta will win this game if they keep scoring like they do. They average 101.5 points per game and that ranks 13th in the league. The Hawks also have to rebound the ball way better. They average 48.2 rebounds per game and that ranks 27th in the league. The final thing they need to do is take care of the ball. They average 15.3 turnovers per game and that ranks 19th in the league.

 

My Prediction

The Raptors want to make this a low scoring defensive battle. While the Hawks want to make this a higher scoring offensive battle. Whichever team can play to their style will have the best chance at winning the game.

I think that the game is a low scoring game like the Raptors want. I think that the Raptors win the rebound battle and contain the Hawks offense. I think that Toronto goes on the road and beats Atlanta.

Final Score

Toronto: 96
Atlanta: 91
