Game Story:

The 28-22 Miami Heat look to continue their success against the struggling 14-36 Charlotte Hornets on the road. Miami is on a winning streak, and has won 7 of the last 10. The team looks to finally be finding their groove and seems to have turned a corner.

Games like this are good to keep building on their recent success. Once again, Miami has all of their regular season rotation available. Something that has been a welcome sight for the Heat is having their main guys healthy, and that continues this afternoon. However, we won’t be able to see the twin match up of Caleb Martin vs Cody Martin as Cody Martin is listed as out.

The only player who’s status was up in the air was Gabe Vincent, but it looks like he will be playing. Tyler Herro has struggled with his shot a lot recently, so look for him to be assertive with the ball in his hands. The Hornets are one of the worst defenses in the NBA that sits in drop coverage, so there could be lots of mid-range and floater play to come from Herro.

He is in need of a bounce back performance. Bam Adebayo will be looking to be dominant as he has of late as well, continuing his NBA All-Star case.
