Two middle of the pack teams in the Eastern Conference tip-off the 2nd halves of their season with a huge matchup as the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks go at it.
Currently, these teams sit neck and neck with one another as the Hawks find themselves in 4th, 8.5 off the pace, while the Heat are 5th, 9.5 out.
This game not only holds major standings implications, but will also go a long way in the tie-breaking category.
The Heat dropped back to back games prior to the All Star break and will look to get back into the win column here in Atlanta on Friday.
Bad news has already rolled in prior to this one as Chris Bosh did not travel with the team and will be OUT for this one. Bosh continues to battle a calf injury and just isn’t at good enough health to play in this one.
Things could be really bad on them with Dwayne Wade’s health in question. Wade has been battling soreness and did not participate in shoot around on Wednesday. He was very limited on Thursday and is listed as QUESTIONABLE for this one.
There were multiple rumors flying around that the offer was on the table for Miami that would send Dwight Howard to Miami for Hassan Whiteside, who is one of the best shot blockers in the league.
However, with the deadline passed, the deal never seemed to pick up steam and the Heat stood pat with what they have. Whiteside has averaged 11 points and 8 rebounds per game through the first half.
Like the Heat, the Hawks were at the center of many trade rumors.
Atlanta was the best team in the Eastern Conference last season, but have endured many obstacles this season.
Still, they have kept pace as they do sit in the 4th spot, but have a lot of work to do if they hope to keep home court advantage for the first round.
With the team so inconsistent, they kept the options open for Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder to potentially be traded.
However, like Whiteside, the deadline passed and Hawks stood pat.
The Hawks look to continue their home dominance as they bring in a 17-9 SU record into this one. In those 26 games, they are 14-12 ATS.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Heat are 17-36-1 ATS in their last 54 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Heat are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home.

Free Miami Heat vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
With Bosh out and so many questions about Wade, Miami is just too thin on Friday.
Look for the Hawks to really dominate in all aspects here as the Heat just can’t survive without their 2 best players. Even if Wade was to go, he’s certainly going to be limited as he won’t be at 100%.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Atlanta -8.5
The Hawks have a big 2nd half in store for them and it starts with a lopsided home win here against Miami.
