[ATLANTA] — The Atlanta Hawks played host to the Miami Heat last night and the Hawks did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 103-95 victory. The win bumps Atlanta's record up to 11-12 on the season, while the loss drags Miami's down to 7-15. Though a win's a win and Hawks fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from Dwight Howard led all players in the contest and his 23 points, 17 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Howard, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Hawks. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Miami back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Hawks in the victory was Paul Millsap and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Howard, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Millsap posted 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists in the win.

Atlanta's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Heat, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Hawks will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Hawks will be a date with the Milwaukee Bucks while the visiting Heat will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
