Heat vs. Hawks 2012 game time, TV schedule and more

Kevin C. Cox

The Miami Heat will look to win their sixth straight game at Philips Arena when they take on the Atlanta Hawks Friday night.

The Miami Heat will look for their homecourt dominance to translate on the road when they visit Philips Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks Friday night. The Heat are 4-1 but have played just one road game thus far, and that was a 104-84 beat down at the hands of the New York Knicks.

Miami has had great recent success at Philips Arena, winning five straight in the building by an average of 14.8 points. The Heat have won nine of 11 against the Hawks overall, and LeBron James is the one to thank for that. James has averaged 32.2 points in his last nine games against Atlanta.

James, as well as the rest of the Heat's offense, has gotten off to a strong start this year. The addition of Ray Allen has made an already strong Miami attack even more potent, and the Heat lead the NBA in scoring at 110.0 points per game.

Atlanta, who made some drastic moves this offseason, has won two straight after losing their opener. This includes an impressive win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, as well as a stirring come-from-behind victory on Wednesday over the Indiana Pacers. Al Horford has been excellent, averaging 17.7 points and 8.7 rebounds.

Game Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
