Heat looking to sweep homestand

See also

The Miami Heat wind up a five-game homestand Monday night by hosting the Atlanta Hawks for the second time this season (7:30 ET, FoxSun Sports Network).

With their 122-103 win over the Kings on Friday night, the Heat (20-6) have won six of their last seven games and will be looking to sweep a homestand of at least three games for the first time this season.

They won three of a four-game homestretch back in early November, losing by one point to the Boston Celtics in the span. After that loss, the Heat went on a 10-game winning streak.

The Heat also are looking to stretch their winning streak against the Hawks (15-13) to nine in a row after winning the first matchup 104-88 back on Nov. 11.

The last Atlanta win in the series was back on Jan. 2, 2012, when the Hawks handed the Heat their first loss in the season that was shortened by the NBA lockout. It was only the seventh game for the Heat at the time.

The two teams have two games remaining between each other, both in Atlanta (Jan. 20 and April 12).

After hosting the Hawks in AmericanAirlines Arena, the Heat will be on the road for their next five games, starting with a nationally televised affair (ABC) at the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day.
