What to Know

The Hawks have enjoyed a five-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. They will square off against the Miami Heat at 8:00 p.m. ET on Friday at Kaseya Center. The Hawks might want some stickum for this contest since the team gave up 23 turnovers on Wednesday.

Last Wednesday, not to be outdone by Orlando, Atlanta got past Orlando on a last-second jump shot courtesy of Dejounte Murray with less than a second left in the fourth quarter.

The experts predicted a close game on Wednesday and a win for the Heat, but boy were they wrong. Their bruising 121-97 defeat to Toronto might stick with them for a while. The Heat’s loss signaled the end of their three-game winning streak.

Atlanta’s win bumped their record up to 17-23. As for Miami, their loss dropped their record down to 24-17.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Hawks haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 13.4 turnovers per game. However, it’s not like the Heat struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 12.5 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Hawks are hoping to beat the odds on Friday, as the experts think they’re headed for a loss. Bettors picking them against the spread have some confidence (to put it mildly), as the team is sitting on a five-game streak of failing to cover when playing on the road.
