Our team came out strong tonight early on in the game, but Miami quickly answered back in the first half and managed to construct a 20-7 run that gave Miami a 9-point lead before half-time.
Throughout the game, it seemed like every time the Hornets got close, the Heat came up with big defensive stops and timely hoops.
