Game Preview: Heat take on the Hawks in the second game of season’s longest home stand

Miami aims for their second win in a row, but without late-game dramatics. The Miami Heat look to have their first win streak of the young season as they host the Atlanta Hawks on Monday at AA Arena. This will be the second game of a back-to-back for the Hawks, who fell to 1-2 with a loss against the surprising Brooklyn Nets. Atlanta lost Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap, but signed former Heat starter Luke Babbitt, who will be making his Miami debut in another uniform. The surprise start for Jordan Mickey and a win for Miami fuels speculation whether Erik Spoelstra will keep the same...

Without both starting forwards, can the Miami Heat recreate their magical ending of last season?

Without both starting forwards, can the Miami Heat recreate their magical ending of last season?

Luke Babbit is gone and Rodney McGruder won't be back until 2018. Will their replacements keep on winning? Luke Babbitt and Rodney McGruder were not stars, but the starting lineup of Babbitt, McGruder, Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, and Hassan Whiteside gave Miami Heat fans a record-setting finish last season, with a thirteen game winning streak along the way. Who will be the new faces in the frontcourt, trying to duplicate the chemistry from last season?

One plays shows how Rodney McGruder reveals his Miami Heat identity

McGruder helped the Skyforce win a championship, now he’s set to do the same for the Heat. Last year the starting five for Miami Heat's opening-night 108-96 win over the Orlando Magic were Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Justise Winslow, Luke Babbitt, and Hassan Whiteside. Rodney McGruder wasn’t inserted in the starting lineup until Nov. 15, which was Miami's sixth loss in a row. Miami began the season with a 2-8 record in their first ten games, on the way to a 11-30 record in the first half of the schedule and the lottery later on. On Nov. 25 of last year, McGruder became a fixture among...

Atlanta Hawks open preseason with 96-90 loss to Miami Heat

Atlanta Hawks open preseason with 96-90 loss to Miami Heat

One in the books. The Atlanta Hawks participated in a basketball game on Sunday evening. There were referees, fans and everything. After 48 minutes in the preseason opener, the Hawks came away on the losing end, falling by a final score of 96-90 to the Miami Heat. The first half saw Mike Budenholzer deploy 14 (!) players and, effectively, the entire projected 15-man roster with the exception of the injured DeAndre’ Bembry. That meant the debut of both John Collins and Tyler Dorsey, as well as the first action in Atlanta for Dewayne Dedmon, Nic Brussino, Marco Belinelli, Luke Babbitt,...
