The Miami Heat will be on the road to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, January 21st.
The tip-off is set for 7:30 ET from State Farm Arena.
This game started off as a pick ’em and now the Hawks are laying a point. The total has gone from 216.5 to 217.
The Heat have played very well so far this season. I do not think the success of this group is all that surprising.
This squad has won four of their past five games. Even if they do drop a few in a row, it never seems to affect them for all that long. Consistency has definitely been one of their stronger traits.
Clearly, last year did not end the way they would have wished, but that has not seemed to impact them in a negative way this season. They have put that behind them and are solely focused on this campaign.
They may not be the most talented team, but when I think of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, I certainly put them in that category. If I had to say right now, I would not choose them to make it out of the East, but that does not mean I do not feel they are capable of doing so.
Miami took care of the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday by a score of 104-92. They did just what they had to do against a team that has really struggled this season.
In the win over Portland, Caleb Martin led the team in scoring with 26 points and 8 rebounds. Also, Bam Adebayo added in 20 points and 11 boards.
This season has definitely not gone the way the Hawks envisioned it would. Quite frankly, they have been one of the more disappointing team in the NBA.
Atlanta has a record of 19-25 and they sit in 12th place in the Eastern Conference. Given the talent and expectations they have, their seeding should be much better than what it is.
A year after making it to the Eastern Conference Finals, they look like they would be lucky to make it to the play-in round. It is amazing how different a team can look from year to year.
This team did pick up a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday by a score of 134-122. They were able to put a bad first quarter behind them and come back to get the job done.
Trae Young was once again the leading scorer, as he went off for 37 points and 14 assists. Even though the year has not gone great for his team, he still has been a very impressive player.

Miami Heat vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Analysis:
Even though it is not a huge sample, the Hawks have seemed to look better in their past few games at home. They will look to keep that up when they host this tough Heat team on Friday.
These teams just met a little bit ago and things did not go great for Atlanta. It would be a good sign for them if the were able to knock off one of the better teams in the conference.
The defense has still really been struggling for the Hawks. Even though they have had success with it before, it is hard to always try and win games in a shootout fashion.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat ATS
Miami has shown that they can play well against Atlanta and I look for that to keep up on Friday. I think their offense can really feast on the Hawks defense.
I know that it is a small number to lay with Atlanta, but I do not like it here. This game is going to be very tough for them.
