It wasn't pretty for the Heat, though, as they started the third quarter down by 10 points.
Luckily LeBron James and Co. cut that double-digit deficit to just two points after just one and a half minutes of the fourth quarter had gone by.
LeBron led the way with 24 points and 11 assists, on 53.3 percent shooting from the field. And Shane Battier was his biggest supporter off the bench with 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc.
For the first three quarters of action, the Heat were still struggling from their post All-Star break lull.
Fortunately, they snapped out of it in just enough time to remind the Hawks that they are the best team in the Eastern Conference.
