Charlotte Hornets preview
Despite entering the play-in tournament as the 10th seed in the East last season, the Charlotte Hornets failed to make the playoffs. The energetic young core will now look to start over this year.
Led by point guard LaMelo Ball and flanked by players like Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward, the Hornets are poised to give the playoffs a big boost this season.
The high-flying action was on full display during their first two preseason bouts, with the Hornets winning one of them. The franchise has been looking to turn things around with its young talent since the departure of Kemba Walker.
Miami Heat preview
The brief change between seasons saw the Miami Heat fall in the first round of last year’s playoffs after reaching the Finals on the bubble. But after a long hiatus and an improvement in personnel during the offseason, the Heat appear poised for another deep run in the playoffs.
The addition of Kyle Lowry and PJ Tucker to its core of Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro and Jimmy Butler means an imminent rise in Long Beach during the upcoming season.
The Miami Heat have beaten the Atlanta Hawks, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs to stay undefeated this preseason so far.
Hornets vs Heat match prediction
The Miami Heat have won three games in a row and look extremely comfortable with their on-court personnel rotations. The Charlotte Hornets would provide some outstanding passes and alley-oop dunks, but they might have to end this one with a hard-fought loss.
