Game Preview: Heat look to clinch playoff spot tonight against Hawks

New, comments

The Heat have an opportunity to clinch a playoff spot tonight with a win against the Hawks.

NBA: Miami Heat at Atlanta Hawks Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

The playoffs are almost here and the Heat can lock themselves in if they win tonight and really they should. The Hawks aren’t a winning team right now with a 22-55 record and the Heat should be hungry after a disappointing loss to Brooklyn.

This one is worth tuning into to see how Hassan is handled after his rant postgame the other day as well.

Probable Starters:

Heat

  • Josh Richardson
  • James Johnson
  • Hassan Whiteside
  • Tyler Johnson
  • Goran Dragic

Hawks

  • Taurean Prince
  • Dewayne Dedmon
  • John Collins
  • Damion Lee
  • Isaiah Taylor

Radio: The Ticket 790AM & The HEAT Radio Network (Mike Inglis, John Crotty)
