[MIAMI] — The Miami Heat played host to the Atlanta Hawks last night and the homeside took care of business. A 116-93 win has the Heat and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Miami's record up to 20-30 on the season, while the loss drags Atlanta's down to 28-21. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Heat. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was Hassan Whiteside leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 18 points, 18 rebounds, 0 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steals in 30 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Whiteside included - and the most important part is that the Heat walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Whiteside in the winning effort was Goran Dragic. Had it not been for Dragic rounding out the Heat's attack with 27 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Heat walking away victorious was Miami's ability to limit Atlanta's offensive output. By holding the Hawks to less than they usually produce the Heat made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Heat will be a date with the while the visiting Hawks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the New York Knicks.
