Heat: Kyle Lowry’s status for the game is the main storyline of it for the Heat. Lowry left Game 3 with a hamstring injury, and his status for Game 4 is not known at this point. “All I know right now is it’s a hamstring,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after Game 3 when asked about Lowry. “But I don’t know the seriousness of it and we will know more tomorrow.”
Even if Lowry is eventually able to play, it’s fair to wonder how embarrassed he might be by the issue. It’s definitely something to watch, as Lowry has been a key contributor to Miami’s success this season.
hawks: An injury issue is also Atlanta’s central storyline heading into Game 4, as Hawks center Clint Capela has been upgraded to questionable for the contest. Capela didn’t play in the series at all after straining his right knee in the Hawks’ win over the Cavaliers in Cleveland on April 15. If Capela is able to play, he could definitely give the Hawks a boost, as his size and rim-protecting ability could help smother the heat in the paint. Additionally, his ability to catch lobs on the edge would give the Hawks another outlet on offense.
The Hawks played a much improved game in Game 3, and they still only won by one point, and the Heat had the opportunity to win the game at the buzzer. After letting that one pass, we can expect the Heat to come out with a little more focus and determination in Game 4. Heat -2
