LOSS: 109-103
Once again, Chris Bosh was very sharp on Tuesday night. Bosh had some nifty moves in the post and drew a lot of fouls on the Hawks. He shot 60 percent from the field and sank 9 of 12 free throws for his 22 points. It has been great to see Bosh consistently get what he wants on the offensive end throughout this preseason. After Atlanta built a double-digit lead, the HEAT responded in the fourth quarter with a 29-15 run to cut the Hawks’ lead to 103-99 with 2:00 left in the game. Shabazz Napier and Shannon Brown played extremely well down the stretch and led the charge for the HEAT during the run. Earlier, the HEAT started the game on a 14-0 run thanks to great defense and crisp ball movement on the offensive end. Danny Granger hit two 3-pointers and had a nice no-look pass to a cutting Luol Deng during the run.

WIN: 119-121
