The Miami Heat hope that the momentum they built in their last game carries over into Tuesday night’s matchup with the divisional rival Atlanta Hawks. Miami overcame a 65-44 third quarter deficit to close out Sunday’s win over the Houston Rockets on a 65-24 run in an eventual 109-89 victory.
Heat veteran Udonis Haslem is credited with giving the motivational speech that helped rally the team at the half in Sunday’s game. That’s a credit to Haslem’s status as a leader in the locker room, as he hasn’t been able to contribute on the court, seeing all of 11 minutes on the season.
The Hawks enter this game having won three in a row, including a pair of tight games in their last two. The Hawks trailed the Charlotte Hornets by a score of 76-70 after surrendering 37 points in the third quarter before limiting the Hornets to 4-of-24 shooting in the fourth quarter in an eventual 94-92 win.
The Hawks won each of those two close games against the Hornets, but managed a margin of just five points in the two wins. Atlanta’s hit on just 32.0 percent of their shots from beyond the arc this season, ranking in the bottom 10 teams in the league in that category. The team hit on 38.0 percent of its 3-pointers a year ago – the second-highest mark in the NBA.
The Heat went into that Sunday game coming off a 102-92 loss in Cleveland against the Cavaliers and their old friend, LeBron James. It looked like the team was in for a letdown against Houston on Sunday, but they were able to wake up in the second half and come away victorious.
Dwyane Wade finished with 20 points, including nine in that dominant third quarter. Hassan Whiteside had a game-high 25, adding 15 rebounds for his first double-double of the season. Whiteside scored his points efficiently, hitting on 12 of 15 shots from the field.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Hawks were able to run away with the Southeast Division a year ago, but it feels like there’s been a changing of the guard. The Heat are on the rise, while the Hawks have struggled to get going this season, even if their record might not indicate it just yet.
