Atlanta is giving up the 6th fewest points per game, averaging 101 per game. Miami ranks 8th in 3 pointer's made on offense, while the Hawks rank 3rd in giving up the fewest 3's per game. I like what the Hawks have done this year and it has helped with the tremendous play of Young. However, the Heat were able to put up a considerable amount of points during the 2 game absence of Jimmy Butler. Butler is back for this game and will only help the offense. This game will be close but the Heat pull away in the 4th quarter. Final score prediction, Heat win and cover 118-109.
