Atlanta Hawks will be meeting Miami Heat on Friday in Atlanta, This will be game 3 in the first round for this matchup. Miami Heat are leading 2-0 after 2 games, first game ended as a 115-91 Heat win and second game ended as a 115-105 Heat win. Miami covered ATS in both games and both games went under the total.

Miami Heat played their best basketball on both sides of the court in this series so far, Miami scored exactly 115 points in both games but they won because of the superb defense they played not exactly the offense. Miami had a 48% shooting from the field and 38% shooting the 3 Pointers in last game, Jimmy Butler had an elite performance with 45 points, 5 rebounds and 5 Assists in that game.

Atlanta Hawks have been struggling offensively against the Heat in this series so far. Bogdanovic was the best Hawks player in that last game with 29 points, 4 rebounds and 3 Assists, Trae Young also had a good game with 25 points on 50% shooting although he has a bad night shooting from the 3 Pointers only 20%. Atlanta Hawks are much better at home and they have a legit chance now of winning and get back to this series otherwise they will likely lose in 4 games if they don't show more fighting spirit.

Head to Head

Miami Heat have won 6 of last 10 games and 4 wins for the Hawks with the ATS record also being 6-4 to the Heat in those 10 games, Miami Heat have won the first playoffs game 115-91 in Miami and then win at home again 115-105 in the second game. The O/U is 4-6 to the under with the Heat averaging 110.6 and Atlanta averaging 106.4 points a game.


Atlanta Hawks played better in game 2 vs the Heat and they still got beaten by 15 points, Miami's defense was too much for the Hawks at home but Atlanta are a different animal at home and they will give it 100% of their effort to win this game and have a chance in this serious vs the number 1 seed Miami Heat. If the Hawks lose this game that will be it and they will go home in 4 games but I believe they have a chance to win this game at home so give me the Hawks here.

Pick: Atlanta Hawks +1.5 (-110)
