This wasn’t helped by Bibby himself who, despite top scoring with 20 for the Hawks, gave up 4 turnovers as part of the Hawks’ 14 turnovers on the night. He didn’t get much help with the points scoring either, only two other players scored into double figures (Joe Johnson and Ronald Murray (who came off the bench) both had 13). Al Horford didn’t play while Josh Smith could only manage 7 points on 3 of 13 shooting.
On the other side only 3 players really turned up for the Heat, luckily for them though they turned up in significant numbers. James Jones scored 11 as a small forward while Michael Beasley dropped 22 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to get a double double. The last of the trio had the best game though, Dwayne Wade, Miami’s talisman, scored 41 points on 11 of 23 shooting including 3 of 7 from behind the arc and 8 assists. D. Wade looks like he’s very much back in the groove and Miami will certainly need that when they go back to Atlanta for the all important Game 7 in a few days. This one ended in an easy Miami victory, 98-72.
