Stinker.


HAWKS 146, RAPS 115
They say good teams adjust and I didn't see any adjustments from the Raptors in terms of defense, effort or intensity last night.

What more can I say?  The Raptors gave up 32+ points to the Hawks for four quarters.  It's nothing new, Raptors fans are patiently waiting for this Raptors team to "finally turn it around"

This game was finished midway through the second period and the Raps decided to pack it in early on.  At halftime, the Raps were already down 21 points, 75-54. 

I mean there's not much more to it.  The Raptors stunk it up.

Al Horford led the Hawks in the blowout with 24 pts and 7 rebounds in 23 minutes.

Key Notes:
  • The Hawks had nine players in double figures
  • Raps are now 2-9 on the road
  • It was the Hawks highest scoring game since '93
  • Raptors were killed on the boards 51-29
  • The Killer B's were brutal (via @cornersniper)
  • DeRozan Watch: 30 minutes, 21 pts (Raps leading scorer), 3 reb, 2 assists
Next up, Raps face the Wizards on Friday...
