The Charlotte Hornets will be going on the road on Sunday night to face the Miami Heat, who have lost four out of their last five games.
Miami seemed to enjoy facing Charlotte last season, winning all four of their games against them. Two of the games were close, but they were also able to pick up wins of 16 and 17 points.
Heat point guard Mario Chalmers has played against the Hornets 23 times in his career, averaging 7.3 points and 4.5 assists against them. Power forward Chris Bosh has been able to average 22.4 points and 8.9 rebounds against Charlotte in 34 career games, while Luol Deng has scored 15.5 points per game against them in 30 games.
On Friday night, the Hornets lost their fourth game in a row when they were defeated 105-100 by the Orlando Magic. They only had seven turnovers in that loss, but the Magic ended up with a 23-9 free throw advantage.
The Hornets have struggled to score against their opponents this season, and they have given up nearly 100 points per game. Veteran big man Al Jefferson has been their best player this season by averaging 20.9 points, 7.1 rebounds and over a block per game. Guard Kemba Walker has also played pretty well by scoring 14.5 points per game and dishing out 4.6 assists per game.
