It’s the same formula the Cavs used to overwhelm Miami on Tuesday — a night Kevin Love scored 38 points and helped limit Heat center Hassan Whiteside. “He’s been playing good,” Tyronn Lue said of Kevin Love. “He has some tough matchups over the last six games. Two with Dwight Howard, Joel Embiid, Whiteside, Andre Drummond and he’s been great. He’s shooting the ball better. I think he’s taken a liking to the 5 because he knows he’s going to get open shots and if teams put smaller guys on him, we’re going to be able to post him. He’s been great.”
Howard had 26 points and 13 rebounds, including a key block at the end of regulation and a crucial offensive rebound in overtime, in the Hornets’ 129-124 victory over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night. The Hornets improved to 7-2 at home. But they’re still below .500 overall because of a 1-7 road record. “We love playing at home,” Howard said. “Thank you, Charlotte. That energy in the building is what keeps us going. But now we need that same energy on the road.”
