It’s an Eastern conference showdown on Wednesday night at the American Airlines. The Charlotte Hornets come to town to take on the Miami Heat.
Both teams cmoe into this game having won their last two games. This is the third match up of the year with the Hornets winning the first two games.
The Charlotte Hornets have had an up and down season. After starting off the season hot they have really struggled the last few months.
They however have won their last two games against the Pacers and the Nuggets. They played better on the defensive side of the ball in those games which was key for them getting a victory.
The Hornets biggest issue this season has been the start of games. They seem to get off to slow starts in the games and then by the time they fight back into it it’s too late.
One thing to watch in this game is how they try and slow down Hassan Whiteside. Frank Kaminsky and Miles Plumlee are out for a couple more weeks which leaves them very short at the center position.
For the Hornets to win this game they need to get off to the fast start. The Heat come into this game with a lot of confidence so if the Hornets get down early, it could be a long night for them.
The Miami Heat are one of the NBA’s hottest teams, which is incredible for as many injuries as they have suffered. Tyler Johnson, Luke Babbitt, and James Johnson are all questionable for this game.
Justice Winslow and Josh McRoberts are both out for this game which leaves their bench in a tough position but they have been thriving even with all the injuries.
The Heat come into this game having gone 6-4 in their last ten games. They are currently in 9th place in the Eastern conference only 1.5 games back of Bulls for the eighth seed. In their last game they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-98.
For the Heat to win they need to get off to the fast start. They need to keep the momentum going that they have built and move closer to that eight seed.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
This game is going to come down to which team gets off to the faster start. I think the Heat will use the home crowd to their advantage and hit a lot of shots early.
The Hornets will crawl back into the game, but the Heat will win the game and cover the spread.
