The Atlanta Hawks were unable to keep up with the high scoring Miami Heat offense and fell for the second time in three games against the Heat, this time by a score of 107-87. The Hawks were outplayed in every facet in Sunday night's game; they were not able to rebound the ball, could not force any turnovers and shot 39 percent from the field.
The Heat had five players score in double figures with LeBron James leading the way with 23 points and Dwyane Wade scoring 21. While the Heat did not shoot the ball all that well at 45 percent, but they made up for that by getting to the free throw line 31 times while making 26 of them. The Hawks were not aggressive in getting to the line as they went 6-of-7.
The one Hawk player that had a decent game was Willie Green who came off the bench to score 17 points, and Joe Johnson was the only Hawk who managed to score in double-digits with 12.
