The Atlanta Hawks have a chance to gain ground when they host the Miami Heat Sunday night. The Hawks have turned it around after losing two straight games and are now riding a three-game winning streak. This is the third meeting between the Heat and the Hawks on Sunday night with each team winning once. The last time these two teams played it was on Jan. 5, and the Heat, who were without LeBron James and Chris Bosh, won in overtime, 116-109.
One of the biggest keys to the game is whether the Hawks defense can find a way to slow down the Heat's up tempo offense, which is second in the league in scoring, with 102 per game. The Hawks' one of the better one in the league, ranked fifth in points allowed, so they should be able to handle themselves against the Heat offense.
So far this season the road team has won when these two teams get together.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, Feb. 12, 7 p.m. ET
