KEY GAME INFORMATION
TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY was banged up last season, but he enters this year healthy and has the potential to be one of the league's best two-way point guards . . . DEMAR DEROZAN does a nice job attacking, but he's a flawed player unless he develops a jump shot . . . The Raptors want TERRENCE ROSS to attack the basket more often. But whether he develops a three-point shot could determine where he fits into this rotation . . . After a disastrous season in Indiana, D.J. AUGUSTIN will have to earn his rotation spot. Toronto could use his shooting, though . . . DWIGHT BUYCKS comes back from Europe to back up Lowry . . . Versatile JULYAN STONE is an interesting bit piece, as he reunites with GM Masai Ujiri, who brought him to Denver. FORWARDS: Despite all that talent, RUDY GAY's poor shot selection and disinterested defense will have him on the trading block . . . AMIR JOHNSON will get another chance at full-time minutes. Despite some inconsistency, he still has the upside to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH brings toughness and a decent mid-range jumper. He's a second-unit talent, but could challenge Johnson for minutes . . . LANDRY FIELDS is a well-compensated reserve . . . STEVE NOVAK gives them a legitimate shooter among the second unit . . . Toronto will try to shake some of that upside out of AUSTIN DAYE . . . QUINCY ACY will move to the three, likely making this a redshirt year. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS is set to become Toronto's new centerpiece. Talented enough for them to run the offense through him, he's rapidly improving on both ends of the court . . . AARON GRAY will stick around as a decent back-up, a 7-footer who can get in the way defensively.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: It was a rocky offseason for JEFF TEAGUE, who looked like a goner at one point. Instead, he'll be the focal point of Atlanta's offense . . . Coming off a torn ACL, resident gunner LOUIS WILLIAMS is a question mark entering the season, especially as a guy who relied so much on quickness and explosiveness. He may not be right again until 2014-15 . . . JOHN JENKINS was rock solid as a rookie and should see a bump in playing time with DeShawn Stevenson gone. Jenkins is a legit shooter who can hold his own defensively . . . Rookie DENNIS SCHRODER is a year or two away from consistent minutes, but the penniless man's Rajon Rondo comparisons aren't off . . . JARED CUNNINGHAM is a middling talent destined for a minor role. FORWARDS: PAUL MILLSAP was lost in the shuffle in Utah last year, but he'll be a significant part of this offense in Atlanta. He's a well-rounded power forward and may prove to be a better fit than Josh Smith was for the Hawks . . . KYLE KORVER is coming off a huge year and will play major minutes at both wing spots again . . . A shadow of his former self, ELTON BRAND will rotate in at power forward and center . . . This generation's junkyard dog, DEMARRE CARROLL gives Atlanta some defensive options on the wing and energy off the bench. Outside of some transition baskets, he's a non-factor on offense . . . Euro veteran PERO ANTIC is a finesse stretch four who provides frontcourt depth. CENTERS: After playing a lot of power forward alongside Zaza Pachulia last year, AL HORFORD will spend most of this season at center. With Josh Smith gone, he's poised to have his biggest offensive numbers ever . . . GUSTAVO AYON has proven capable of eating up some space on the second unit. He'll be the second big off the bench after Elton Brand.

*Raptors-Hawks Preview* =======================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Toronto (37-28) at Atlanta (29-35), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Just more than a week ago, an abysmal stretch for the Atlanta Hawks seemed to be jeopardizing their chances for a seventh straight playoff appearance.

They've now seemingly righted their defensive woes and gotten back on track with their longest winning streak of the season.

Atlanta will try to continue its recent home mastery of the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night.

The Hawks (30-35) have won four in a row since dropping 14 of their previous 15, and improved defense appears to be keying the turnaround. They've held their last three opponents to 90.7 points per game on 39.3 percent shooting, including a 29.0 percent clip from 3-point range. Over Atlanta's previous 13 contests, opponents were averaging 109.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting, including 38.8 percent from beyond the arc.

Monday's 97-83 win at Charlotte trimmed the Bobcats' lead for seventh place to 1 1/2 games. Atlanta held Charlotte to 35.3 percent shooting, including 28.9 percent and 31 points in the second half. It was the fewest points allowed in a second half by the Hawks since holding Chicago to 30 in an 83-80 victory on March 2, 2011.

"The activity and the effort and the commitment on the defensive end in the second half allowed us to beat a very, very good team tonight," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "That's something that we want to continue to build on and continue to improve as we go down the stretch here."

Paul Millsap, who is averaging 23.0 points over his last four games, scored 28 and was one of four Hawks with at least two 3-pointers. They're shooting 42.8 percent from long range over the last five games.

Toronto, which has dropped nine of 11 at Atlanta, is letting opponents shoot 45.2 percent from long distance over its last four games.

These clubs split two earlier meetings, with the Hawks going 4 of 20 from distance in a 104-83 road loss on Feb. 12. Atlanta hit 10 of 23 3-point attempts in a 102-95 home win on Nov. 1.

DeMar DeRozan scored 31 in each and is averaging 24.9 points in his last seven meetings.

The Raptors (37-28) own a three-game lead for first place in the Atlantic and have won eight of 11 despite a 121-113 home loss to Phoenix on Sunday.

Kyle Lowry had 28 points and 13 assists and Terrence Ross added 22 points, but Toronto's bench was outscored 59-11. The Raptors have tallied 20 or fewer bench points in three straight games for the first time this season and have been without Patrick Patterson - who averages 9.3 as a reserve - for their last five due to a right elbow injury. Patterson is listed as out for Tuesday.

Toronto came close to losing another key player when Lowry was briefly treated after being kneed in the head twice during a loose-ball scramble, though he remained in the game after a timeout and is expected to play Tuesday.

"I got kneed in the head, bad," said Lowry, who is averaging 22.0 points and 9.8 assists over his last five games. "I've got a headache right now."

The Raptors will be looking for their 18th road victory for the first time since 2001-02. They're in striking distance of the franchise record of 20 road victories (2000-01) with eight more games away from home remaining after Tuesday's contest.

Millsap is shooting 57.4 percent over 14 career games against Toronto, which is his highest against any opponent.
