The Miami Heat are riding an 18 game win streak into tonight’s game with The Atlanta Hawks. LeBron James and Dwayne Wade have led the team through the NBA’s longest win streak of 2013.
Tonight the Atlanta Hawks visit American Airlines Arena, where Al Horford, Jeff Teague, and Josh Smith look to derail the Heat. The Hawks are tied with the Boston Celtics in Eastern Conference standings, and a win could help them move up to the six seed in the East.
