Ethan J. Skolnick

Hornets lead by 5 entering 4th, in what would be another ugly home loss for Heat. Charlotte shot 10-for-17 in the third.

Rick Bonnell

Don't mean to get NFC South-like, but Hornets winning tonight would atone for that loss at home to Orlando Friday as far as division record.

Joseph Goodman

#Hornets 72, #Heat 67 entering the fourth quarter.

Ira Winderman

And with Walker 3, Hornets go up 60-57. Heat's concerns with Jefferson have them scrambling on the perimeter.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Lance Stephenson's now made 6 of his last 8, and Hornets have pulled even. Al Jefferson is having no trouble getting post touches.

Jason Jackson

Ok NOW I think the @Miami Heat know the second half started thanks to @Charlotte Hornets 7-0 run to start the 3rdQ #HEATLive

Rick Bonnell

Hornets 7-0 run to start the second half, cutting the deficit to two. Sloppy ballhandling by the Heat.

Ira Winderman

Three Heat turnovers to start second half, all lead to scores, Hornets go from down 53-44 at half to within 53-51.

Rick Bonnell

McRoberts came over to Hornets bench to greet the coaches. He and Clifford are very fond of each other.

Rick Bonnell

Heat shooting 22-of-37. So to some extent Hornets fortunate to be down 9 at halftime.

Ira Winderman

And for all those times I might have said "'Bobcats" I meant "Hornets."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Heat lead Hornets, 53-44, at half. Deng w/ 19. Jefferson w/ 13. Andersen has sprained ankle. In other news, what's with Dolphins' front 7?

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Heat 53, Hornets 44. Luol Deng went off for 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting.

Ira Winderman

Heat 53, Hornets 44 at half. Deng with 19. Bosh with 11. Heat sharp on second night of back-to-back. Reviewing late 3 attempt.

Rick Bonnell

As the first Hornets-Heat game indicated, Cody Zeller can guard Chris Bosh, which buys the Hornets minutes at center.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Heat lead Hornets, 23-22, after first. Chalmers 4-of-4. Jefferson 5-of-5. Will get an update on injury to Chris Andersen.

Joseph Goodman

#Heat 23, #Hornets 22 after 1Q. Dang and Chalmers with eight points each. Big Al with 11.

Ira Winderman

Heat 23, Hornets 22 at end of first quarter. Jefferson with 11 for Charlotte, Chalmers, Deng eight apiece for Heat.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Heat 23, Hornets 22.

Ira Winderman

Actually feel bad for Steve Clifford, considering the passion the Hornets coach has for defense.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets are 2-5 this season with MKG out of lineup. I'm told the Bobcats were 8-12 last season with MKG out.

Surya Fernandez

Dwyane Wade, Danny Granger and Udonis Haslem take warmup shots before Hornets game. burst.com/h/gy18072

Rick Bonnell

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets-Heat matchup comes down to whether the Heat gets away with playing small ball. (more)

Ira Winderman

Dwyane Wade, Norris Cole out again for Heat on Sunday against visiting Hornets. bit.ly/11OWYEn

Joseph Goodman

Norris Cole and Dwyane Wade both out tonight against the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI -- how are the Hornets' three free-agent acquisitions fitting in? charlotteobserver.com/2014/11/22/533…

Jason Jackson

prepping @Charlotte Hornets @Miami Heat with one eye … watching @Browns with the other … a lack of focusity on both fronts (and my eyes feel funny)

Micky Arison

I looooove the hornets, the hornets are my liiiiiiife (just as much as chipotle) instagram.com/p/vuEc-UhYqx/

Rick Bonnell

Rick Bonnell

Thanks to @jim_utter for filling in for me last night. Here's his game story off Hornets-Magic: charlotteobserver.com/2014/11/21/533…

Zach Lowe

Just finished ORL-CHA. Disastrous loss for Hornets. Didn't get Maxiell's minutes, awful late-game execution. Ben Gordon revenge game!

Hornets classic night! Took it back to the 90's! (Photo cred to my main man Chuck! @CBurtonAP ) instagram.com/p/vsXOz-BYv8/

John Denton

Down 70-47 with 6:41 to play in 3rd Q, @Orlando Magic outscored @Charlotte Hornets 58-30 the rest of the way to win 105-100.

David Locke

Hornets allow 41 4th quarter points to the Magic -- what happened to the Hornets defense?

Andrew Perna

Only six teams have a lower winning percentage than the Hornets. It's starting to be troubling.

John Denton

Down 23 points & seemingly dead in the water, @Orlando Magic have come storming back to within 93-91 of @Hornets ... Ben Gordon leads rally.

John Denton

An 11-pt halftime deficit turns into a 58-40 hole for @Orlando Magic as @Charlotte Hornets start 3rd Q with 7 straight points

Brian Schmitz

Al Jefferson has 12 points as Magic trail Hornets by 10 at 44-34.

Brian Schmitz

Hornets lead Magic 27-26 after 1st quarter. Victor Oladipo has eight points as does Al Jefferson.

Brian Schmitz

Al Jefferson to the bench with two fouls, and Vucevic scores. Hornets lead 20-19.
