Miami is in pretty good form as the club has won eight of their past 10 games. The Heat are shooting the basketball extremely well as the team sits number one in the NBA with a 48.4% shooting percentage and rank second in the league in scoring offense at nearly 103 points per game. The team has been fairly healthy going into tonight’s matchup as Dwyane Wade and Mike Miller are finally fit enough to keep off the Heat’s injury report. In the team’s 106-89 road win at Washington on Friday night the veteran backup Shane Battier is coming off his best performance as a member of the Miami Heat with 15 points and five rebounds in the win. Lebron James is putting up MVP numbers with a 28 point per game average and 54.2% shooting from the floor.

Since losing Al Horford and Jason Collins to injuries the Hawks struggled dropping three straight games. They have recovered with wins at home to Indiana on Wednesday night and at Orlando in an 89-87 road overtime victory. The impact is big for Atlanta with the loss of Al Horford because he is an efficient player with 12 points a game and a 55.3% shooting average and seven rebounds a game. The Hawks defense around the basket is vulnerable tonight. Marvin Williams, Zaza Pachulia and Vladimir Radmanovic will have their hands full with Chris Bosh, Lebron James and Dwyane Wade’s drives to the basket.

On the betting board the Miami Heat has covered the point spread in 7 of their previous 9 meetings against the Atlanta Hawks.
