City of La Quinta:
Heat vs Hawks NBA 2021 Live Stream
Despite what the final score could imply, the Atlanta Hawks handily defeated the Miami Heat Friday, 114-103.
The Heat played fine offensively, shooting 47 percent with three players reaching the 20-point mark, but their defense is what cost them this one. They constantly cut a double-digit lead to within striking distance—sometimes as close as four—only to give up an easy basket
or second-chance hoop on the ensuing possession. Atlanta shot 56 percent and 39 percent from three.
Mario Chalmers led the way for Miami with 23 to go along with 11 assists, while Chris Bosh added 20 and Shawne Williams put up incredible shooting numbers totaling 21 points.
Atlanta put up one of the most well-rounded scoring night you’ll see, with eight players reaching double-figures and nine of 10 Hawks to enter the game scoring at least three.
Paul Millsap and Al Horford led the team with 19 a piece. Kyle Korver sank four threes and dished out seven assists, while Jeff Teague continued his hot start, sinking 16 and dishing out nine dimes.
Miami’s next contest comes Sunday evening against the Milwaukee Bucks. Atlanta’s next matchup takes place Saturday against the Cavaliers, fresh off their close finish against the Boston Celtics on Friday.

What to Know
The Miami Heat and the Atlanta Hawks are set to square off in a Southeast Division matchup at 7:30 p.m. ET April 23 at State Farm Arena. The Heat won’t have the home-court advantage, but they do enjoy a 5-point advantage in the spread.
Miami’s game against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday was close at halftime, but Miami turned on the heat in the second half with 56 points. Miami made easy work of San Antonio and carried off a 107-87 victory. The oddsmakers were on Miami’s side, but they didn’t give the team enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide. It was another big night for their center Bam Adebayo, who had 23 points and five assists in addition to eight rebounds.
Meanwhile, Atlanta fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the New York Knicks on Wednesday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 137-127. A silver lining for the Hawks was the play of center Clint Capela, who posted a double-double on 25 points and 22 boards. That makes it 12 consecutive games in which Capela has had at least ten rebounds.
Miami’s win lifted them to 31-28 while Atlanta’s loss dropped them down to 32-27. We’ll see if the Heat can repeat their recent success or if Atlanta bounces back and reverse their fortune.
