Game Preview:

The race for home court advantage in the first round continues for the Atlanta Hawks, as they face the Toronto Raptors tonight in Philips Arena.

The Atlanta Hawks are currently 2.5 games behind the Indiana Pacers and the 3rd seed, and also currently hold only a half a game (.5) lead vs. the Boston Celtics (4th seed). Like every game left for the rest of this regular season, this has playoff standing implications.

This is a must win game really. The Hawks are facing a non-playoff team that has key players out with injuries, so this should be a game that they should win. The Raptors aren't playing for anything anymore, and the Hawks are still playing for better positioning in the playoffs, so there should be no reason for a let down.

Of course, as we've all witnessed before, the Hawks have shown that at times they play down to the level of their competition. The Hawks have matured significantly with this situation this season, but there have still been a couple of instances this season when they have lost games they weren't supposed to. Let's all hope that won't be the case tonight.
