Atlanta @ Miami

Current Records: Atlanta 14-19; Miami 16-17

What to Know

The Miami Heat will stay at home another game and welcome the Atlanta Hawks at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 28 at AmericanAirlines Arena. If the contest is anything like the Hawks' 129-124 victory from their previous meeting in February of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

Miami was able to grind out a solid win over the Utah Jazz this past Friday, winning 124-116. Miami's small forward Jimmy Butler did his thing and almost posted a triple-double on 33 points, ten rebounds, and eight assists.

Meanwhile, Atlanta came up short against the Oklahoma City Thunder this past Friday, falling 118-109. Center Clint Capela put forth a good effort for the losing side as he dropped a double-double on 21 boards and 17 points along with four blocks.

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

Miami's victory brought them up to 16-17 while the Hawks' loss pulled them down to 14-19. The Heat are 8-7 after wins this year, and Atlanta is 9-9 after losses.
