Heat vs Hawks NBA Prediction and Odds
|Heat vs Hawks NBA Prediction and Odds: Miami Heat is predicted to win tonight’s game against Atlanta Hawks as per the latest prediction|
The Miami Heat will aim to secure a winning lead and wrap up the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs when they host the Atlanta Hawks for Game 5 tonight. It was Jimmy Butler’s day in the last game as he was absolutely brilliant in Game 4, adding 36 points to his name.
“Everybody is in my ear about staying aggressing, taking more shots. Tonight was a good one. We’ve got another one we’ve got to get.”
The Atlanta Hawks’ winning streak of 6 games in their home arena finally came to end with a loss in the last playoff fixture. They seemed to have no answers to the tough questions of the strong Heat side. De’Andre Hunter looked like a lone warrior in the lineup with 24 points.
Atlanta’s coach Nate McMillan summed up his opposition’s performance in a few words after the game. McMillan said:
“They basically kept us on the perimeter.”
Kyle Lowry is expected to make a comeback for the Heat in the next game. Trae Young too suffered a minor injury in the initial phase of Game 4 but he continued playing. The status of Lou Williams is questionable for the Hawks.
