Game Story:

After an exhilarating win against the Bucks on Saturday night, the Heat could not get it done against the Wolves on the back end of the back-to-back. Many might say it’s because they lacked the scoring punch of Jimmy Butler, who returns to the lineup tonight after the birth of his child last week.

Last season the Heat dropped winnable games against the Hawks that came back to bite them during their late season playoff push. They can’t afford to do that again even against a young Hawks team with prolific scorers.

Probable Starters:

Heat

  • Jimmy Butler
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Meyers Leonard
  • Kendrick Nunn
  • Justise Winslow

Hawks:

  • De’Andre Hutner
  • John Collins
  • Alex Len
  • Cam Reddish
  • Trae Young
