After a strong fourth quarter showing in a win over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, the Atlanta Hawks return home to Philips Arena for a match-up against the Miami Heat on Friday evening. This game will kick off a back-to-back set that concludes with a road contest against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday, but the Hawks will be keen on focusing their attention to Miami in the first game.
The acquisition of Goran Dragic has been key to the Miami Heat’s playoff push, and their eventual reward could be a series with the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Hawks.
