Hawks beat Heat 99-86, clinch top seed in Eastern Conference

ATLANTA (AP) After clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs for only the second time in their Atlanta franchise history, the Hawks were left to contemplate the remainder of the regular season.

It's is a new dilemma for a Hawks team that barely made the playoffs as the No. 8 seed last year.

DeMarre Carroll scored 24 points and the Hawks never trailed in beating the Miami Heat 99-86 on Friday night.
