Matchup to Watch
Dwyane Wade vs. Courtney Lee: Wade is among the most physical shooting guards in the league and has played this season like he’s still in his prime 24 points shy of 20,000 career points.
▪ The Heat is still waiting on whether Chris Bosh will recover from a blood-clot episode in time to rejoin them, possibly for the playoffs.
▪ The Heat leads the season series with the Hornets 2-1, so Miami can clinch a tiebreaker by winning this game.
▪ The Heat added Joe Johnson, who arranged a buyout with the Brooklyn Nets in time to sign and be eligible for the playoffs.
▪ The Heat has been bringing center Hassan Whiteside, who grew up in Gastonia, off the bench recently. He had a triple-double (points/rebounds/blocks) in his last game against the Hornets.
