On Tuesday, the Miami Heat will play the Atlanta Hawks at the AmericanAirlines Arena. Game time is set at 8:30PM ET. This is the third home game of the season for Miami before they embark for a two-game road trip.
Last Sunday, Miami overcame a huge 20-point deficit against the Houston to secure its 2nd win of the season after a heartbreaker loss against Cleveland last Friday. Veteran and captain Udonis Haslem delivered a profane-laced talk during half time and encourage his team to play more with passion and tenacity.
Haslem's reminder sparked the Heat close out Houston with a 65-24 run and fashioned out a 109-89 victory. Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Hassan Whiteside and Luol Deng played harmoniously as they shared the ball in the 2nd half.
The Atlanta Hawks put its three-game winning streak on the line. They opened the season on a wrong foot against Detroit. But bounced back against New York and a home and road game win against Charlotte.
The basketball handicappers have installed the Miami Heat as a 4-point favorite to beat the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.
