I know the Miami Heat are on the end of a back to back, but they're a deep, competitive team, so don't expect the effort to tail off. The Charlotte Hornets are one of those teams I look to back in preseason action, as they have a ton of playing time on the table, so the competition level is there and it usually produces results. Still, the Heat are the better, deeper and better coached team. I'll take Miami for another victory.
