Tonight, the Raptors will take on the Atlanta Hawks, a matchup in an Eastern Conference where the landscape has changed significantly over the past month. The Hawks have quietly become the East's best team and have done so with the kind of balanced effort that made Toronto so successful in their re-emergence. 

I'm absolutely curious to see if the Raptors can get continuity with DeMar DeRozan back against a quality opponent. While I don't expect a win, it'd be a great barometer for a team that's struggled in fits and starts over the last few weeks.
