The Atlanta Hawks emerge from the All-Star break on Wednesday and prepare to begin the final stretch of the season with a home matchup against the Miami Heat. Atlanta won two in a row heading into the break in large part to the recent play of Josh Smith who is averaging over 24 points and 10 rebounds over his past four games.
Smith however has been the subject of numerous trade rumors and he could be moved before Thursday's 3 p.m. deadline. The Hawks will have to put those distractions aside Wednesday night as they try to slow down a suddenly red hot Heat team that has won seven straight.
LeBron James has spearheaded the Miami attack topping 30 points in his last seven games while shooting a blistering 60 percent from the field. The Heat have won both meetings this season and have won six straight in the series at Philips Arena and five overall.
Game Date/Time: Wednesday, February 20, 8 p.m. ET
Location: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
