Miami @ Charlotte
Current Records: Miami 28-22; Charlotte 14-36
The Charlotte Hornets haven’t won a game against the Miami Heat since March 26 of 2021, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Sunday. Charlotte will take on Miami at 1 p.m. ET at Spectrum Center after having had a few days off. The Hornets need to shore up a defense that is allowing 118.62 points per matchup.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between Charlotte and the Chicago Bulls this past Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as Charlotte wrapped it up with a 111-96 win at home. Charlotte can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Terry Rozier, who had 28 points in addition to five boards, and center Mason Plumlee, who dropped a double-double on 21 points and 12 rebounds.
Meanwhile, the Heat didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Orlando Magic this past Friday, but they still walked away with a 110-105 victory. It was another big night for Miami’s small forward Jimmy Butler, who had 29 points and six assists along with six rebounds.
The Hornets are expected to lose this next one by 6. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in 15 of their 22 home games.
Their wins bumped Charlotte to 14-36 and Miami to 28-22. Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
