Thursday, February 20, 2020 7:30PM ET at State Farm Arena, One Philips Drive, Atlanta. Atlanta and Miami left for a break in the Championship after losing in their last games. Which team will continue its losses streak?
Both teams represent the Eastern Conference, but the similarities between them end there. This is clearly illustrated by the intermediate standings. The hosts completely merge the season and go to the bottom, the guests are quite comfortable in the leading group.
Miami against this background looks like a team from a parallel universe. To begin with, the Californians became the main discovery of the season in the East. Now they are in fourth position. Rivals have met in this regular season three times already. Three times Heat turned out to be stronger.
The roster Atlanta is full of talented youth. Hawks wisely conducted winter exchanges, having obtained a mobile center Clint Kapela, who should add power in defense. This is the most problematic place of the team. The fact is that Hawks on average miss 118.9 points per match, and this is the second indicator of the season from the end. In addition, Atlanta is in the penultimate place of the East with only 26.8% of victories.
