New, comments

The Miami Heat are hosting the Atlanta Hawks. Here’s the preview with everything you need to know.

NBA: Miami Heat at Atlanta Hawks Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat will begin a 4-game home stand on Tuesday when they host the Atlanta Hawks. The importance of this home stand is so important as it precedes a 6-game west road trip. Miami has the lowest amount of home wins for any East team as they are 3-7 at home. The Hawks (4-16) already have one win on the Heat this season and Miami can’t afford to give the young team another one.

What To Watch For

Trae
The Heat couldn’t stop him the last time they played the Hawks as he had his way mostly. If the Heat want this win they have to limit his play making ability. They will always have length on him, but can they keep him in front of them is the question. If Young routinely gets past Heat defenders, Miami has to hope that the Hawks don’t have a great shooting night because they will probably get plenty of open looks.
