Hawks Vs. Heat Score Update: Atlanta Holds 45-43 Lead At Halftime

The Miami Heat rebounded from a two-game losing streak with a win Tuesday night against the New Jersey Nets, but have found themselves trailing the Atlanta Hawks 45-43 at halftime. LeBron James leads the Heat so far in points with 15 points at halftime and 7 rebounds. Outside of James, the next highest scorer for the Heat is center Joel Anthony with six points. One reason the Heat have fallen behind is they haven't hit a single shot from the three-point line.

For the Hawks, Josh Smith leads the way with 14 points and 4 rebounds. Point guard Jeff Teague has also picked up eight points on the night while the Hawks rallied to take a halftime lead and try to push their three-game winning streak to four games.
