Match Overview

Two groups reeling from difficult misfortunes will square off on Sunday when the Atlanta Hawks welcome the Miami Heat to State Farm Arena. The Hawks' sole triumph at home came against individual strugglers Dallas Mavericks and they have since persevered through pulverizing thrashings to Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings; two groups they'd hope to beat.

More stressing than the annihilations themselves are the conduct in which they have been controlled, with disturbing disappointments in both offense and barrier. While the Hawks were held to only 85 points by the Bulls on 32% shooting, they permitted a youthful Sacramento side to burst into flames and light them for 146, incorporating 46 in the second from last quarter.

Notwithstanding, they would hope to right the ship against a Miami side that haven't gotten off to the most splendid of begins either. Miami pride themselves on their smothering resistance, however that has neglected to emerge up to this point in this crusade, with their edge safeguard generally to blame in the recreations against Sacramento and Charlotte.

To exacerbate the situation for the Heat, they may be without the administrations of veteran point watch Goran Dragic who missed practice on Friday and was compelled to direct a cortisone infusion to manage a dangerous foot.

My Dream XI

Point Guard

The sole splendid spot in Atlanta's crusade hitherto has been the development of freshman Trae Young, who drives the group in scoring with 18.5 ppg. While he isn't the most proficient of shooters – he is shooting only 43% from the field and 75% from the philanthropy stripe – he is equipped for scoring in spurts, as prove by his 35-point exertion against the Cavs prior in the season.

Goran Dragic was recorded as sketchy for Sunday's diversion, yet is probably going to highlight regardless of whether not totally fit. Dragic is effectively the Heat's most imperative player and is averaging 17.7, 3.4 bounce back and five helps from 7 diversions this season.

Shooting Guard

Bazemore tends to blow hot and cool through the span of a season – even a diversion – however against a Miami barrier that permits 26.5 from restricting shooting watches per amusement, he would be an insightful pick. Bazemore has shifted back and forth among great and terrible shooting evenings, with 32 and 18-point exhibitions against the Mavericks and Philadelphia followed up by woeful presentations against the Bulls and Cavs where he went a joined 6-17 from the field and 1-8 from downtown. In any case, when he is hot, he is pretty much relentless and that is the thing that the Hawks would seek after.

Josh Richardson drives the Heat in scoring with 19.1 ppg on 40.5% shooting. The Swingman has rolled out an inconspicuous improvement to his offense this season, exchanging mid-extend endeavors for more shots from past the curve. Richardson is seventeenth generally in 3s endeavored this season, yet that has not traded off on his capacity to assault off the spill or drive to the bin.

Little Forward

Vince Carter is as yet going solid at 41 years old, in his 21st season as a star hotshot. While he is probably not going to get such a large number of focuses just because of the way that his volume has gone down a few indents, he is a generally shoddy alternative which would enable you to spend lavishly on a couple of other huge name players.

Power Forward

Taurean Prince began the season brilliantly, reeling off sequential 20+point diversions and averaging 22 ppg over his initial four trips. Be that as it may, he has experienced a shooting droop of sorts from that point forward, going only 20% from the field and 16% from the 3-point line. In any case, he has still figured out how to figure out how to contribute, handing out six helps, seven bounce back and two or three takes against Sacramento.

With James Johnson still on the sidelines, Kelly Olynyk has figured out how to squeeze out a beginning spot. He was super cold against Sacramento, shooting only 1 for 7 from the field yet he ricocheted back unequivocally against the Hornets, scoring 14, 3 bounce back and 3 helps. Olynyk consumes a great deal of vitality on the floor, and is a danger from past the circular segment also.


While Hassan Whiteside would be the undeniable decision for focus in any Dream XI group including the Heat, Alex Len could turn out to be a savvy procurement this time around. Right off the bat, Whiteside, as Dragic, did not hone on Friday and keeping in mind that he is required to return in time for the coordinate against the Hawks, it stays to be perceived how near full wellness he is.

Len in the interim has demonstrated a consistent enhancement since his takeoff from the Suns. Now that he's a starter, he's averaging near 25 minutes for every diversion and piling on 10.5 and 6 bounce back. He was an ideal 10-10 from the field against the Cavaliers and will require all the more such exhibitions to persuade the administration they were right in reserving him in. Len professes to have built up a 3-point shot too, in spite of the fact that that is yet to be seen this season.

Star Player: Trae Young
