Hornets Have Lost 16 of 17 in Miami

Winning on the road in the postseason has not exactly been in the Charlotte Hornets’ DNA. Dwayne Wade was in college the last time the Hornets won on the road in a playoff game. After storming back into the series thanks to two-straight victories in North Carolina, the Hornets will be looking to keep that momentum going tonight when action shifts back to South Beach — a place where they have just one win in their last 17 attempts.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Hornets' last nine games.
  • The Heat are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games after a loss.
  • The Hornets are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games as an underdog of 5.5 or less.

Both of Miami’s wins came by double-digit margins at home, but the veteran Heat have looked older and slower than the upstart Hornets in the last two contests. Wade, Luol Deng and Joe Johnson all logged heavy minutes in Game 4, with the 30-somethings fading down the stretch in Monday’s 89-85 defeat.

Hornets point guard Kemba Walker is a big reason for his team’s resurgence. Walker scored 19 of his playoff career-high 34 points in the second half of Game 4 and put up each of Charlotte’s 11 points in an 11-5 run that put the boys from Buzz City up 87-80 with 3:10 left in the fourth quarter.

History is working in the Heat’s favor tonight. Miami is 13-2 SU in its last 15 postsaeson home games, with both losses coming to the San Antonio Spurs in the 2014 NBA Finals.
