Miami ranked in the top five of the league in defensive efficiency during the regular season, and they have allowed only 1.06 points per possession in the series. The Heat are grabbing 78.8 percent of available defensive rebounds and forcing a turnover on 16.6 percent of defensive possessions. Miami is also playing well on offense, including a 70.5 percent assist rate and a 60.2 percent true shooting mark.
The model also knows the Hawks are tremendous on offense. Atlanta scored 1.19 points per possession in Game 3, finding its stride during a 16-point second half comeback. The Hawks had more than twice as many assists as turnovers in that game, and Atlanta was No. 2 in the NBA in offensive efficiency this season. The Hawks have top-tier shooters and, with the league's best turnover avoidance, Atlanta can maximize possessions.
