Who’s Playing

Atlanta @ Miami

Current Records: Atlanta 17-23; Miami 26-15

What to Know

The Miami Heat will be returning home after a six-game road trip. Miami and the Atlanta Hawks will face off in a Southeast Division battle at 8 p.m. ET on Friday at FTX Arena. The Heat are out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.

Atlanta is out to make up for these teams’ matchup on Wednesday. Miami took their game against Atlanta by a conclusive 115-91 score. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Miami had established an 86-67 advantage. They can attribute much of their success to point guard Tyler Herro, who almost dropped a triple-double on 21 points, 11 dimes, and nine rebounds.

The Heat are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.

Miami is now 26-15 while the Hawks sit at 17-23. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Miami comes into the game boasting the fourth fewest points allowed per game in the league at 103.9. Less enviably, 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. So the cards are definitely stacked against Atlanta.
