The game was eerily reminiscent of Friday's loss to New Orleans. Atlanta took an 11 point lead into the fourth quarter on Sunday and Dennis Schroöder quickly upped that to 14 with a three-point play to open the period. Toronto answered with a 13-0 run to get back within one point as Atlanta's offense completely disappeared. DeMar DeRozan gave the Raptors the lead at 85-84 with 2:32 remaining and Kyle Lowry sealed it with a steal and layup with under 40 seconds to go.
Atlanta put in a solid effort for three quarters but is struggling to finish games. They allowed 42 fourth quarter points in Friday's loss to New Orleans and 36 more on Sunday against the Raptors. The Hawks held Toronto to just 37 percent shooting through the first three quarters but the Raptors connected on 12-20 attempts in the fourth.
