The Miami Heat play host to the Atlanta Hawks at the Kaseya Center on Friday night. Here’s a Heat vs Hawks Prediction.

Atlanta Hawks

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have won five of their last nine games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the Magic in a 106-104 win on Wednesday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 26 points and five assists on 11 of 18 shooting, Trae Young added 18 points with 12 assists while Onyeka Okongwu chipped in with 15 points and nine rebounds off the bench. As a team, the Hawks shot 51 percent from the field and eight of 25 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Magic in a close contest that stayed within seven points, until Murray saved the day with the game winning shot at the buzzer to give the Hawks their second straight win.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat have been in decent shape as they've won five of their last eight games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this spot after having their three-game win streak halted by the Raptors in a 121-97 road defeat on Wednesday. Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro all scored 16 points each while Duncan Robinson chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Heat shot 45 percent from the field and just six of 28 from the 3-point line as they got off to a nightmare start and were never in the contest after getting outscored by an incredible 78-43 in their worst half of basketball of the season. Kyle Lowry had a rough game of just four points on two of nine shooting, but this loss was all about the Heat's uncharacteristic effort on the defensive end. The Heat will meet the Magic, Grizzlies, and Celtics after this one.

Heat vs Hawks Prediction

The Heat are still shorthanded with Jaime Jacquz Jr ruled out and Kevin Love listed as questionable, while the Hawks have ruled out Wesley Matthews again and they have Trae Young listed as questionable. Be sure to check the linueps before tipoff, but regardless of whether Young is fit, I'm sticking with the more consistent Heat to get the job done at home after they played so poorly in their last outing.
