Heat-Hawks Preview

(AP) -- The acquisition of Goran Dragic has been key to the Miami Heat's playoff push, and their eventual reward could be a series with the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Hawks.

With Dwyane Wade among several injured players, the Heat may need another strong performance from Dragic in this possible first-round playoff preview with the Hawks on Friday night.

Miami (33-38) is seventh in the East, with Boston, Indiana, Brooklyn and Charlotte in close pursuit. The Heat have gone 9-7 with Dragic in the lineup since acquiring him from Phoenix in a three-team trade Feb. 19, with the veteran point guard averaging 17.0 points, 5.6 assists and 1.5 steals.
