Reigning league MVP LeBron James will be leading the pack as Miami Heat takes on the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.

The Heat are on a 3-game winning streak, with James tallying an average of 34.0 points in those wins, while shooting 70.2 per cent from the field.

"More than anything, it was his energy," coach Erik Spoelstra told

"When you see him attacking off the glass and pushing coast to coast, you know he feels good with his body and you know it sets a great tone for our team. He's playing with great energy on both ends of the court."

Meanwhile, the Hawks are trying to rack up as much victory as they can, winning four of their recent five games. Their bench came up big against the New York Knicks in a winning effort on Saturday, scoring a total of 43 points.

Reserve Paul Millsap contributed 14 points and 13 boards, while Shelvin Mack had 12 coupled with 12 dishes.

"Man, those guys stepped up real big for us," Millsap said.

"They did a great job coming off and sparking that energy for us. They came in, executed well, played great defense. ... Going forward, that's what we're going to need. We're going to need a bench to compete in this league."

Heat guard Mario Chalmers will suit up after a one-game suspension for committing a flagrant-2 call against Dallas. Ray Allen should undergo a last minute fitness test after missing the last 3 games due to flu, while Dwyane Wade will likely sit out to get a needed rest.

The games tips-off at 10:30 am AEST. To watch it, you can subscribe to NBA League Pass.
