End of series for Atlanta! After 5 wins in a row, Clint Capela and his teammates fell in Toronto. They lost 118-108 to the Raptors who secured a place in the playoffs with this victory.
On the other hand, the Hawks will have to go through the play-in box which will bring together the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th in the Eastern Conference. Finalist of this Eastern Conference last year in front of Milwaukee, Atlanta paid a high price this season for an insufficient balance sheet outside with 15 victories against 24 defeats.
In Toronto, the Hawks let go in the money time. They led, in fact, 103-102 at 2’53 » from the buzzer before conceding a partial 16-5 to conclude this meeting.
One defeat too many for the Lakers
Clint Capela, for his part, delivered the goods with his 10 points and 14 rebounds. The Genevan has a differential of +5.
In the West, the course of the Lakers will stop in the regular season. Beaten without LeBron James 121-110 in Phoenix, the formation of Los Angeles has only a tiny chance of appearing among the first 10. She conceded in Arizona her 7th loss in a row, one too many.
