Heat 99 Bobcats 88
Miami blitzed Charlotte during mid-4Q with Wade-Bosh-Cole-Allen-Andersen against Jefferson-Neal-Walker-McRoberts-Henderson. This came after an earlier, late-3Q push by Jones-Chalmers-Allen-Andersen-James against Jefferson-Neal-Zeller-Walker-DouglasRoberts. Charlotte is in a tough place with its bench, getting negative minutes from Zeller-DouglasRoberts and playing those two with Jefferson-Walker, overusing the Bobcats two key guys. The Heat have issues too, primarily the negative minutes by Wade-Bosh-Chalmers-Haslem-James, a sign that Miami is going into games not knowing what the best lineup is and hoping it is something the team can figure out as the game goes along.
