Atlanta Hawks at Miami Heat

Tuesday January 18, 2011 7:30 PM EST

Line: Miami -6.5

The Hawks got the win last night 100-98 over Sacramento at home. Joe Johnson lead all scorers with 36 points. The Hawks do have a 4 game road winning streak. The Heat have struggled lately losing 3 straight. Lebron James has been out with an ankle injury and this team just hasn’t been the same. Now to make things worse, Chris Bosh may be out with an ankle injury as well.

Stats to consider:

Atlanta Hawks:

  • Atlanta is 27-15 with a 13-9 road record.
  • Points per game: 98.1 (18th)
  • Points allowed per game: 95.4 (8th)
  • Rebounds per game: 40.2 (24th)
  • Assists per game: 23.3 (4th)

Miami Heat:

  • The Heat are 30-12 with a 15-4 home record.
  • Points per game: 101.6 (10th)
  • Points allowed per game: 93.7 (5th)
  • Rebounds per game: 42.8 (8th)
  • Assists per game: 19.8 (26th)

What to watch for:

  • Atlanta SG Joe Johnson carried this team to a win last night with his 36 points. He leads the team with 19.7 PPG and 5.4 APG. C Al Horford is 2nd in scoring with 16.5 PPG and leads the team with 9.7 RPG. Josh Smith leads the team with 1.4 SPG and 1.9 BPG and also has 16.1 PPG.
  • With SF Lebron James questionable and PF Chris Bosh doubtful, the Heat could be without their leading scorer, rebounder, assist leader, and steal leader. SG Dwayne Wade is Probable for the game due to a sore knee. The Heat will need Wade to step up in this one. Wade is 2nd on the team with 25.1 PPG and 4.3 APG.

This sports pick is tough due to injury. Chris Bosh will almost certainly not play, while Lebron James has a chance to play. Dwayne Wade will be forced to do a lot if the other 2 of the big 3 are unable to go. Joe Johnson is coming off a big 36 point game, but the Hawks only beat the Kings by 2 points at home.
