For an early-season battle, the Miami Heat vs Charlotte Hornets game is one that could potentially be a preview for the Eastern Conference Finals, especially with how competitive and open the East has been so far this season.
Although the Miami Heat are two years removed from the loss of LeBron James, they’re still playing some very good basketball, sitting at 12-7 and just percentage points out of his new team, the 13-7 Cleveland Cavaliers. The Heat have been a surprise this season with guys like Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh playing like they did about five years ago in their primes.
With a very fluid starting lineup that is about as good as any in the league, the Heat will be looking to really make a run at the NBA crown this season. The Hornets are also a team that could be dangerous down the stretch and they have been putting together a nice start as well at 12-8.
Bemba Walker is having a great season, leading the team in scoring, but it’s obvious that the addition of sharpshooting Nicolas Batum has helped drastically. Charlotte is one of those young and improving teams that will have a successful multi-year run in the NBA.
