Miami Heat vs Atlanta Hawks: Storylines
These two teams are having a similar season in terms of results. Currently, both are out of playoff positions in the Eastern Conference, however, they aren't too far away from the 8th place.
After an impressive run in last year's tournament played in Orlando, where they reached the NBA Finals, the Heat couldn't repeat such form in this new season. Instead, they have more losses than wins up to know, and they aren't even in the first eight teams of the Eastern Conference.
A quite similar situation is happening in Atlanta, not for having a terrific streak last season, but because they practically have the same record than Miami now and are close to them in the standings. However, Trae Young is shining for the Hawks, looking to lead them to playoffs.
