Miami Heat vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

It's Friday night. Let's basketball together.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It has been far too long since the Atlanta Hawks participated in an NBA basketball game but that dry spell comes to an end on Friday evening. The Miami Heat invade Philips Arena for the first game after the All-Star break and there are plenty of story lines (hello, Ersan Ilyasova) to keep everyone occupied both before and after tip-off. In addition, Dennis Schröder has been suspended for tonight's game, leaving the door open for all kinds of possibilities at point guard.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
