Carrying a franchise-record 18-game winning streak into AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday, all eyes were on the Miami Heat for their game against the Atlanta Hawks. They had slain their Eastern Conference foe Indiana Pacers on Sunday—a contest that finally gave them a victory over a team many thought had their number. With Atlanta struggling, many had the Heat as a lock to win their 19th straight before heading out on the road.
With that said, the Hawks weren't going to head to South Beach and lie down just because Miami is on a historic roll. Atlanta is a playoff team in its own right and was desperate for a victory, especially with every seed between No. 2 and No. 8 being within six games of one another.
