Through 3 Quarters

Down seven at the end of last quarter, the Miami Heat have now snagged the lead. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Atlanta Hawks as the Heat lead 87-77.

Miami has been relying on center Bam Adebayo, who has posted a double-double on 13 points and ten rebounds along with five assists, and small forward Jimmy Butler, who has 15 points and five assists in addition to seven boards. Small forward De'Andre Hunter (16 points) and point guard Trae Young (14 points) have been the top scorers for Atlanta.

Atlanta has lost 87% 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

After a two-game homestand, the Miami Heat will be on the road. After a few days' rest for both teams, they and the Atlanta Hawks will meet up at 7 p.m. ET April 22 at State Farm Arena. The Heat should still be riding high after a victory, while Atlanta will be looking to get back in the win column.

Atlanta is out to make up for these teams' matchup on Tuesday. Miami was able to grind out a solid win over Atlanta, winning 115-105. Small forward Jimmy Butler had a dynamite game for Miami; he had 45 points and five assists along with five rebounds.

Miami is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Golden State Warriors March 23 easily too and instead slipped up with a 118-104. In other words, don't count the Hawks out just yet.
