This Tuesday, there is a matchup between two Eastern Conference teams in the NBA as the Atlanta Hawks and the Miami Heat will face off at about 8:00 PM. This will be the third meeting between these teams this season and it will take place at the American Airlines Arena.
Miami Looks For Another Home WinSo far this season, the Miami Heat have been a pleasant surprise in the Eastern Conference. The Heat have won 17 of their first 26 games this season as they are currently in possession of first place in the Southeast Division. In addition, Miami has been amazing at home up to this point. The Heat have played ten home games leading up to this game and they have not lost any of those games. Now, Miami will look for another home victory against a team that has been awful on the road this season. However, one still has to wonder if Miami will be able to cover this rather large spread.
Leading the Heat offensively is forward Jimmy Butler who looked good so far this season. He is averaging a team-high 20.6 points per game along with 6.8 assists and 6.3 rebounds. In addition, Butler has also been solid defensively as he is averaging 2.2 steals per game. Now, he will look for another good performance on Tuesday.

Adebayo has blossomed into a quality center in this league and he will look to continue playing well at home against Atlanta.
