    TORONTO (Ticker) -- New general manager Bryan Colangelo and the Toronto Raptors play host to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday in their final meeting of the season.

    Mike James scored 26 points and All-Star Chris Bosh added 19 and seven rebounds as Toronto dropped its fourth straight game, a 101-94 defeat in Miami on Monday. It failed to supply a strong defense in the post, giving up 72 points in the paints.

    Former Suns GM, Colangelo officially was named president and GM on Tuesday and inherits an organization that has not made the post-season since 2001-02 but has a good nucleus of young talent in Bosh and rookie Charlie Villanueva. The 40-year-old Executive of the Year reached the playoffs eight times during his tenure and posted an overall record of 476-366 in Phoenix.

    Al Harrington scored 22 points and Josh Smith had 19, nine rebounds and four blocks for the Hawks in Monday's 104-102 overtime triumph over New Jersey at home. They received a total team effort with six players in double-figure scoring.

    Atlanta is 16-21 in its last 37 games after starting the season just 2-16. Nine of its 18 wins overall have come against clubs with a .500 or better record.

    The Raptors have dominated the Hawks this season and they look to complete the series sweep on Wednesday. James and Bosh have been unstoppable averaging an impressive 44.6 points combined.
