Chris Boucher’s Career Night Not Enough as Raptors Fall to Hawks

The Toronto Raptors win streak against the Atlanta Hawks is over.

After winning 10 straight against the Hawks, Atlanta routed the Raptors by a score of 132-121 to snap Toronto’s mini three-game win streak.

Chris Boucher scored a career-high 29 points, but it was not enough as the Raptors defense had no answer for Trae Young and the size the Hawks presented. Both Clint Capela and John Collins put up big nights, combining for 42 points and 23 rebounds, while Young led the way with 28 points and 13 dimes in the win. Kevin Huerter also had himself a big night, finishing with 19 points, as the Hawks improve to 11-12 on the season, breaking the deadlock with the Raptors in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

Meanwhile, the Raptors were once again without the services of OG Anunoby who is etching closer to game action as he recovers from a calf strain.

“I think it is a little touchy with it, but they’re shooting for maybe the last part of this road trip,” Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said before the game as the team remains hopeful to see Anunoby back in the lineup in the very near future. “So I think there is a light at the end of the tunnel here, and we’re hopeful to get him out on this trip.”

The Raptors will now head to Memphis where the will get to enjoy the Super Bowl before taking on the Grizzlies on Monday evening.
