Miami Heat Defeat Atlanta Hawks

start exploring

After a humiliating setback in Game 1, the Atlanta Hawks fought back in Game 2. Sadly, their best wasn't enough. The Heat won the game and lead the series 2-0.

Trae Young has a chance to tie the game at 104 with 2:30 remaining. Jimmy Butler slammed the ball down the field for an uncontested dunk. It was a game in miniature.

Young had to work hard for 25 points on 50% shooting, while Butler cruised to 45 points. Worse, Young turned the ball over ten times.

There was considerable drama throughout the game. While the Hawks refused to be intimidated, Kyle Lowry messed with fellow Philadelphian De'Andre Hunter.

That was the night in Miami. The Heat made 29 compared to the Hawks' 14. Collins' workload increased from 21 minutes to 29 minutes tonight.

Coach Nate McMillan remarked, "Turnovers made the game tonight. You can't have 19 turnovers and expect to win.

Our mistakes led to 21 points, 20 of which came on fastbreaks, and I believed that was the difference today."

Trae Young, evidently unhappy, responded immediately and honestly. "Clearly, we thought we missed one. It can't last very long. We have another game coming up."

Young then slammed the officials. "Clearly, we felt we had lost one. But if the umpires allow them be as rough as they are and don't call fouls, it's hard to accomplish anything.

So we need to know where we are going and be ready to take care of home."

Game three is Friday in Atlanta. We'll have lots of material between now and kickoff. AllHawks.com has all the latest news, highlights, and commentary.
