What To Watch For
How much zone will the Hawks play?
And can they hit 13 threes again? The Hawks played some zone and the Heat did decent against it, helping their late comeback. Will they try it again? Miami needs to come out with a much better effort and take care of the ball some more to win. The Hawks are playing freely and even though the Heat have clinched, they need to close out the season well.
