The Atlanta Hawks go on the road tonight and they will try to take down the defending champs in a match that tip off at 7:30 PM EST.
Just to get it out of the way early, here is the TV info for that one and now on to the game.
TV: FS-Detroit, Ohio, DTV: 649, 653, 758, 759
The Miami Heat are favored (-8), and think that LeBron James and company will win this one but have much respect for Al Horford and the professional way the Hawks have played so far this season.
They have been a surprise team, and it would be a shock to me at this point if they did not make the playoffs. That does not really help them tonight, and still expecting them to lose the game but to cover the spread.
“I made good shots,” Horford said after the latest win. “I missed a few that I thought I should’ve made, a few jump shots, being the perfectionist I am. Our energy was the difference tonight.”
Horford will be a lot for Chris Bosh to contend with tonight, and the former Gator should make things quite interesting in the fourth quarter of this one. In the end though, James has been by far the best player in the league this season, and the scary part is “King James” looks like he is starting to feel truly comfortable in his own skin.
