Basketball's back for the official 2015-2016 NBA season, so get ready, MstarsNews readers!
The Atlanta Hawks battle it out on the court against the Toronto Raptors in Week 21 of the regular season on Wednesday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m. EST from the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. Read on to see where fans can watch and listen to a live stream of the highly-anticipated Wednesday evening basketball game online and catch up-to-date feeds and coverage on highlight plays and scores.
Before heading into the official playoff season, Atlanta maintains an impressive top spot in Marc Stein's official NBA power rankings for ESPN.com, while Washington still lags a bit behind (out of a total 30 teams):
Wizards (19): "The Wizards will undoubtedly get some mythical team of the week votes after using a home rout of the Pistons as the springboard for four straight wins that have unexpectedly launched John Wall & Co. back into the hunt for one of the East's final two playoff spots. Turnovers have been stacking up anew on Wall, but he also just became only the second player in franchise history (alongside Darrell Walker in January 1991) to record a triple-double in back-to-back games, as well as merely the fourth player in the league to pull off that feat this season, joining Draymond Green, Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook."
Record: 35-35 (10th in Eastern Conference).
Hawks (5): "Only six teams in the NBA can claim to possess a winning record against .500-or-better teams this season. And the Hawks are one of those six alongside Golden State, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Cleveland and Toronto. So perhaps it's no accident that Atlanta awoke on this Rankings Monday having quietly risen to No. 3 in the East. Yet here's something the Hawks will have to wait until next season to try to correct: San Antonio's 18 consecutive home victories over them (dating to Jan. 21, 1998) is the league's second-longest such streak behind the Spurs' 33 regular-season wins in a row at home against Golden State."
Record: 41-30 (4th in Eastern Conference).
