The Charlotte Hornets are 1-1 (1-1 away) while the Miami Heat team is 1-2 (1-0 home). It’s hard to say which team is in a better position from these facts alone. Both the teams need the victory direly to improve their score this NBA season.
The Charlotte Hornets are going to be missing point guard Michael Carter-Willians and shooting guard Nicolas Batum.
The Hornets have had a bad performance since a long time. Their lone victory in their last five games has also been a close one. Here’s a quick recap of the last five games the Hornets have been in (starting April 2017).
Four consecutive losses against the Boston Celtics 121-114, the Milwaukee Bucks (89-79), the Atlanta Hawks (103-76), and the Boston Celtics (94-82) again. Recently, they won the game against Detroit Pistons 108-106.
Surely, the Hornets’ only aim right now is to make up for their old losses by some fresh victories. They really need that.
Miami Heat has won three and lost two out of the most recent five games. Currently on a two-game losing streak, the Miami team will be looking forward to recovering from that state.
Their victories have been against the Cleveland Cavaliers (124-121 OT), the Washington Wizards (110-102), and the Atlanta Hawks (96-90). Their recent losses have been at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets (107-88) and the Orlando Magic (93-90).
Anyway, Miami has shown unprecedented improvement this season. Last season, things weren’t really much good.
On a more positive note, the Miami Heat team is not missing any player out due to injuries. This means that the Miami team will be playing its usual game without the slightest of disturbances.
