Raptors, Hawks, to bounce back after losses

The Toronto Raptors and the Atlanta Hawks are both coming from losses, following their loss from Bucks and 76ers. The Hawks goes to Canada to meet the Raptors, aiming to get a victory on November 1, 2022, at 7:30 AM (GMT+8). These two teams are hoping to go back on winning ways after their disappointing loss on their previous match. The visitors are off to a 4-2 start, while the hosts are currently 3-3 in the standings. The Raptors and the Hawks are hopeful to earn a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs, so they need to add more wins.

Toronto Raptors continue to struggle because of their continuous changes in their roster. All these past seasons, the Raptors are all trying to retain the line-up that won the championship in 2019. However, now, only Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet remained in that squad, so familiarity is still an issue for this team. As for the Hawks, they are actually having a solid record right now, and are in a winning streak. However, that winning streak ended when they lost to the Bucks. All in all, the Hawks look to be luckier than their opponent, but they have not defeated a good team yet.

This team actually had a slow start this season where they lost twice in their first three opening games. After that record, they went to 2-1, making their record 3-3. The Raptors this season is an average squad, but if they can finally get the familiarity they need. Since their championship in 2019, this squad continue to develop with the ins and outs of their players. On their last match, it was Paskal Siakam who lead their team with 26 points and 10 rebounds. Usually, he gets help from Fred VanVleet, but on their last match, he went 0 of 11 from the field. This squad is facing a problem offensively as they lack in offense production this season. Siakam is the only Raptor player that average double digits. In fact, the Raptors are averaging only 104.8 points per game, but they are doing well defensively. They allow 106.2 points per game per match, being 4th in the league.

This squad actually have a solid start, a 4-2 start this season, including their recent loss against the Bucks. That loss against the Bucks ended the winning streak of the Hawks, but the Hawks could have won that game if they were careful in the last stretch. On the last 30 seconds of that game, a turnover by the Hawks sealed a victory for the Bucks. It was Trae Young who lead the Hawks on their last match with a score of 42 points. He is also the one who leads the Hawks in scoring on their previous matches. Young is averaging 30 points per game in their first six games. He gets help from Dejounte Murray who is averaging 20 points per game. The Hawks score 117 points per game shooting 48% in the field. Whenever this squad plays, expect a shootout offensively.
