Miami Heat Use 21-0 Run to Turn Tide vs. Atlanta Hawks


April 22, 2022

You probably thought you saw it all after the Memphis Grizzlies’ incredible fourth-quarter comeback against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night. But the Atlanta Hawks had a “hold my beer” moment against the Miami Heat on Friday.

Down 61-54 at the half, the Heat knew they needed an exceptional second-half performance to avoid falling into the dreaded 3-0 series hole against the Hawks.

Miami traded buckets for the opening few minutes of the third quarter before going on an incredible 21-0 run to open things up against Atlanta.

And then the tweets came.

Hawks head coach neglected to call a timeout during the run, with Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra pausing action after his team tuckered themselves out. The damage was done at that point, with the Heat holding a comfortable lead late in the game.

If the Heat can hang on to win, that could shift the series momentum in their favor heading into Game 4.

For now, the action continues at State Farm Arena. Check out FanDuel Sportsbook for live wagering options.
