Miami started the game by running out to a 14-6 lead, before the Hornets answered with a 14-0 run – featuring four 3-pointers from four different players. The Hornets led by 12 midway through the second half, before Miami started to heat up.
The Hornets shot just 26 percent in the third, and Miami became the first team to achieve a second-half lead change in the series with a score of 71-65 going into the fourth. But Miami went cold, shooting for only 32 percent the rest of the way.
The Hornets have now won three straight in the series to take a 3-2 lead into a potential Game 6 clincher on Friday night.
