ATLANTA — We could not discern which the fans enjoyed more — the Atlanta Hawks thorough dismantling of the injury-plagued Miami Heat or seeing Atlanta-native 2Chainz performing for the thundering throngs at Phillips Arena.

Downtown Atlanta served as the natural convergence of sports and hip-hop when honorary CEO 2Chainz performed for the fans before the game, at halftime and following their convincing victory over the Heat 99-86.

Before 2Chainz, born Tauheed Epps in suburban College Park, Ga., (who attended North Clayton High School with R&B singer Monica) started revving up his rapid-fire rhymes before a packed crowd, he beat beloved Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins in a game of HORSE — yes, the man who has his statue posted up strong outside the Hawks’ arena — and the rapper even has his official Hawks jersey on sale at the team’s store.

Only after he dispatched ‘Nique that 2Chainz started cranking out his greatest hits such as “I’m Different” and “Spend It.”

Take a look at the photographic highlights from the evening:
