Hawks end three-game losing streak and first victory against Raptors since March of 2017.

The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Toronto Raptors 132-121 and ended their three-game losing streak.  Trae Young led the Hawks with 28 points and a game-high 13 assists and Clint Capela had 23 points, a game-high 16 rebounds and a game-high 4 blocks.  All the Hawks starters scored in double figures and Danilo Gallinari came off the bench with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.  Chris Boucher led the Raptors with a game-high and career-high 29 points and 14 rebounds and Fred VanVleet had 25 points, 10 assists and 6 rebounds.  The Hawks were shooting lights out from downtown making 19 three-pointers and made 52% of their three pointers attempted.

They also made 56% of their field goals and had 10 blocks as a team.  They committed 18 turnovers compared to the Raptors 6 turnovers and the Raptors had 10 more offensive rebounds than them.  The Raptors had 9 steals and the Hawks were only able to get 1 steal.  The Hawks still manage to win with those big differences and their blocks and shooting help win this game.  This is a big victory for the Hawks after losing the previous 10 meetings to the Raptors and not beating them since March of 2017.  The Hawks improved to 11-12 for the season and the Raptors are 10-13 this season now.
