Hawks vs. Heat: How to watch live stream, TV channel, NBA start time

Through 3 Quarters

The Miami Heat typically have all the answers at home, but the Atlanta Hawks are posing a tough problem. Three quarters in and the Hawks’ offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating Miami 88-74 three quarters in.

Atlanta has enjoyed the tag-team combination of point guard Trae Young and power forward John Collins. The former has 23 points and six assists, while the latter has 13 points in addition to six boards. Collins does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four.

The top scorers for the Heat have been shooting guard Max Strus (15 points) and center Bam Adebayo (13 points).

Miami has lost 76% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

The Atlanta Hawks will play host again and welcome the Miami Heat to State Farm Arena, where tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET Friday. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

While not quite a landslide, the matchup between Atlanta and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday was still a pretty decisive one as the Hawks wrapped it up with a 134-122 win at home. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 42-26 deficit. It was another big night for Atlanta’s point guard Trae Young, who shot 6-for-10 from downtown and finished with a double-double on 37 points and 14 dimes along with five rebounds.

Meanwhile, Miami had enough points to win and then some against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, taking their contest 104-92. Miami can attribute much of their success to center Bam Adebayo, who dropped a double-double on 20 points and 11 boards in addition to five steals, and small forward Caleb Martin, who had 26 points in addition to eight boards. Martin’s performance made up for a slower game against the Toronto Raptors on Monday.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Atlanta is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The wins brought the Hawks up to 19-25 and the Heat to 29-16. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Atlanta has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.80% from the floor on average, which is the fifth highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. Miami’s defense has more to brag about, as they they enter the contest with only 103.9 points allowed per game on average, good for fourth best in the league.
