ATL vs MIA Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

Share

ATL vs MIA Dream11: The NBA Playoffs are in full flow and we have seen various intense battles throughout the Postseason. To make my point home, there are two tied series in the West while the matters in the East may look a little simple, they can be complicated. The Celtics are up by three-nil, the 76ers are up by three-one, the Bucks are up by two-one. Meanwhile, the Miami Heat will look to grab a three-one lead versus the Atlanta Hawks while the Hawks will look to level things.

The Hawks won the last game as Trae Young made a tough floater as the Hawks outscored the Heat 34:25 in the final Quarter and of course, it was Young who did the most damage. Late in the game, the Heat was unable to perform and their isolation sets were rather painful to watch. The Heat will have to learn to close out games if they are to make a deep run.

Host: Atlanta Hawks
Visitors: Miami Heat

Match Timing: 25 April, @ 04:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: State Farm Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Big game for the Hawks

Although Trae continued to be off from the three-point line, his late charge proved a point; the Hawks need him to fire on all cylinders. The Heat once again did a great job guarding him but it was the balanced scoring of the Hawks that proved to be decisive. Hunter and Bogdanovic scored 17 and 18 respectively while one of the major contributions by the bench player Delon Wright, who nailed 18 points.

The Heat shot just 31.1% from the three-point line in the last game and despite a 45:36 rebounds advantage, a late-game collapse took the game away from them. Strus had another strong shooting night, clipping home five out of his three-point shots. The Heat dished 30 assists and despite doing most of the things right, it call came to close out games.

For the Hawks, the shooting percentage of 51 was impressive and that is something that was missing in the first two games. They also forced 14 turnovers and did a great job of also reducing them compared to the first two games. Although there were some promising trends for the Hawks in the last game, they have their work cut out in various ways. Will they be able to respond in the same fashion in Game 5?

Fantasy-related tips

Although Trae Young isn’t putting up expected numbers, he will still remain a hot favorite in the fantasy scenarios. Jimmy Butler has been a major factor for the Heat and he has been padding up the fantasy numbers. Tyler Herro reclaimed his spot as a dependable fantasy option in the last game and once again, he will be expected to do his job again by the Heat. Kyle Lowry has been struggling a bit in terms of points and his fantasy stocks may have dipped a little. Max Strus has seen a rise in his stocks and the same goes for PJ Tucker. For the Hawks, Bogdan Bogdanovic has seen a rise in his stocks while the same goes for DeAndre Hunter. Delon Wright has done a great job as well and his stocks have risen considerably. John Collins is not in his full flow while Onyeka Okongwu can be used as the filler.
