The Miami Heat trounced the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. The series is already shaping up to be a nail-biter, thanks to lethal offense and gritty defense on both sides. Quavo embraced the tantalizing matchup with his appearance on the sidelines, among a number of celebrities.

If you’ve seen any Hawks games in the last few years, you’ll understand the team’s special bond with the city. The State Farm Arena located in downtown Atlanta has become a top location for fans as well as rappers and hip-hop artists.

Quavo’s love for the game is no secret and is a die-hard supporter of his hometown team, the Atlanta Hawks. The frontman of the rap group Migos, a trio of local North Atlantans, has supported his hometown team passionately.

Throughout the regular season, the Atlanta Hawks showed signs of being a well-oiled machine. However, they were ousted in the first round of the playoffs by one of the teams Quavo came out to watch tonight. Fellow Southeast Division team Miami Heat sealed Atlanta Hawks’ elimination in 5 games. It’s unclear though, whether the chart-topper came out to root for the Heat or the Celtics.
