The Charlotte Hornets and Miami Heat meet Wednesday in NBA action at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
The Charlotte Hornets need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Charlotte Hornets are averaging 102.8 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 109.8 points on 47.6 percent shooting. Terry Rozier is averaging 18 points and 4.4 rebounds while Devonte' Graham is averaging 18 points and 7.5 assists. Miles Bridges is the third double-digit scorer and PJ Washington is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.7 rebounds per game. The Charlotte Hornets have won four of their last six road games.
The Miami Heat look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Miami Heat are averaging 112.4 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 108.9 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 20.2 points and 6.6 rebounds while Goran Dragic is averaging 16.3 points and 5.1 assists. Bam Adebayo is the third double-digit scorer and Kendrick Nunn is dishing 3.4 assists. The Miami Heat are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free throw line.

The Hornets are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Miami and 2-8-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The over is 13-6 in the last 19 meetings in Miami.
This feels like a lot of points, but the Miami Heat are one of the best home teams in the league where they win by an average of 10 points and shoot 48.8 percent from the field and 41.1 percent from deep. The Miami Heat are also 20-10-1 against the spread at home this season and could have one of their best scorers in Tyler Herro back. The Charlotte Hornets can really stink up the joint at times, and they're 6-9 against the spread as a double-digit underdog. I'll eat the big number.
