To say this game on Wednesday night is huge would be an understatement. The Miami Heat travel to Charlotte to take on the Hornets in what is the biggest game of the year for both teams.
The Heat sit in in the 8th spot but they are only one game up on the Hornets.
With only four games remaining after this game, this very well could be an elimination game of sorts for the Hornets if they were to lose this game.
With the Pacers also vying for a spot it would be hard for them to make the playoffs if they lost this game.
The Miami Heat had a terrible start to the season and it looked like they were destined for a really nice draft pick, but then the team had other ideas.
They went on quite the run and have put themselves in position to make the playoffs, but there is still some work to do.
The Miami Heat come into this game struggling a bit as of late. They have lost two in a row and four of their last six games. In their last game they lost to the Denver Nuggets 116-113.
For the Heat this game needs to be treated like a must win for them too. They have a brutal schedule to close the season and need all the wins they can get now.
Their next games are against the Raptors, Washington twice and Cleveland.
To win this game the Heat really need to focus on the defensive end of the floor. The Hornets have scored more then 110 points in each of their last three games.
If the Heat want to win this game, they can’t let this game become a shootout, they need to try and slow down the pace.
The Charlotte Hornets have had quite the opposite season story of the Heat. The Hornets got out of the gate to a flying start.
Then the middle months came and they really struggled and it looked like they had no chance of turning it around and making a playoff run.
But they have turned it around and come into this game hot. They have won four in a row and seven of their last ten games.
To win this game they need to push the pace.
The faster the pace this game is played at the better the chance, the Hornets win this game, and keep their season alive.
