The Atlanta Hawks look to extend their winning streak to four straight games when they hit the road to take on the Miami Heat. The Hawks defeated the Heat 114-103 back on November 14 behind 19 points each from Al Horford and Paul Millsap. Atlanta has won the last three meetings against Miami all in Atlanta but have dropped five straight to the Heat at American Airlines Arena.

Atlanta dug themselves a big hole on Tuesday night falling behind the Boston Celtics by 23 points in the first half before staging a furious second half comeback for a 109-105 win. Kyle Korver led the way with 24 points while going 8-9 from the field. Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 15 points off the bench to help fuel the comeback.

Miami comes into the game with an 9-8 record having most recently suffered a 107-86 loss to the Washington Wizards on Monday. The Heat has gone 4-6 over their last 10 games but recently got Dwyane Wade back into the lineup.

Wade missed the previous meeting with the Hawks due to a hamstring injury that cost him seven games. He returned to the lineup on Saturday and finished with 27 points in a win over the Knicks.

Tip off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and the game will be televised locally on SportSouth.
