The Miami Heat launches its play-offs perfectly by easily dominating Atlanta for its first game of the first round

The Miami Heat, leaders of the Eastern Conference at the end of the regular season, offered themselves a start worthy of their status as favorites in their first round of play-offs. Faced with the Atlanta Hawks, out of the play-in after having eliminated the Charlotte Hornets then the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Floridians have mastered their subject.

In the wake of Jimmy Butler (21 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals) and PJ Tucker (16 points, 5 rebounds), and well helped by the vista of the rear Duncan Robinson (27 points at 9 of 10 in shooting including 8 out of 9 from three points), Erik Spoelstra’s men have never been worried by a particularly clumsy opponent. Weighed down by a delicate start (3 out of 17 shooting after 12 minutes), the visitors sank before the break (59-40, 24th) and let the gap climb to 32 points before reducing the score somewhat (115- 91).

Painful evening for Trae Young

Symbol of the immense difficulties of his people, the leader Trae Young lived a painful evening in the FTX Arena in Miami: 8 points to 1 of 12 in shooting (6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals). Above all, he was constantly harassed by the Miami defense, which often played with the limits, like some suspicious actions inflicted on their rival.
