Report card

Offense: C-minus

Credit a group of reserves for a 30-point fourth quarter. That was the offensive highlight. The Hawks starters were a combined 19 of 46 and Teague had eight of the field goals. There were too many turnovers. The Raptors were successful in disrupting the Hawks’ ball-movement offense.

Defense: D

The Hawks’ key to the game was keeping DeRozan and Lowry off the free-throw and 3-point line. They did not succeed. The two guards were 12 of 14 from the line and 5 of 8 from long range. When concentrating on the two all-stars, Valaciunas answered with a big game inside.
