ATLANTA (WGHP) — “The Hawks-Heat tip-off has been delayed 30 minutes while State Farm Arena security investigates a suspicious package found outside the arena, a Hawks spokesperson told ESPN,” per Dave McMenamin on Twitter.

The Miami Heat currently hold a 2-0 series lead over the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs heading into Friday’s critical Game 3 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
