Hornets Haven't Won in Miami Since 2010

The most competitive division in the NBA, the Southeast, is completely up for grabs, and Thursday’s Charlotte Hornets-Miami Heat clash could go a long way in determining who cruises into the postseason with the banner. The red-hot Hornets have won 14 of their last 17 games, concluding a 6-1 SU home stand with Wednesday’s 107-99 win over Orlando.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Heat' last four games.
  • The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last five games after an ATS loss.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Hornets' last six games with a closing total of 210.0 or less.

Charlotte, who opened as 4-point underdogs, has been great at covering the spread away from home. The Hornets are 6-2 SU and ATS in their previous eight road contests.

It won’t be easy, however. The Heat are on a season-high four game winning streak in South Beach, and have outscored the Hornets by an average of 12.2 points in the last 14 meetings between the Eastern Conference foes.

The Hornets are winless in Miami during that span, a skid that dates all the way back to 2010.
