The Charlotte Hornets took complete control of the series and now will have a chance to clinch at home in Game 6 on Friday night.
The series has completely shifted after Miami dominated the opening two games of the series.
Charlotte went down 2-0 and with Nicolas Batum getting injured, it looked as if the Heat would cruise to the next round.
Then entered the 7 footer Frank Kaminsky. Along with him has been Marvin Williams, who has been inconsistent, but stepped up big time in Game 5.
Williams finished with a team high 17 points in the win in Miami as he shot 7 of 10 from the field to go along with 8 rebounds. Williams has had games where he has played very poorly, but when his production goes up, so does the Hornets.
The Hornets are seeking their first playoff series win since 2002.
The Heat became the biggest public bet and were given the best chance to beat the Cavaliers in this postseason in terms of the Eastern Conference.
Well now, they’re one game away from being bounced out of the playoffs.
Dwayne Wade went up for a game tying layup with just 2 seconds to go as contact was made, but no foul was called. With Heat going down 3-2, it’s time for the veterans to step up.
Luol Deng and Hassan Whiteside in particular are the ones who need to get things going here early in Game 6. Deng was an offensive threat in the first two games of this series and Whiteside will need to establish himself in the paint early to set the tone. If these two can do this, the Heat will take the crowd out of this early and swing the momentum to Miami.
