Al Jefferson vs. Hassan Whiteside: Jefferson’s ability to draw fouls on Whiteside is a key factor in this playoff matchup.
▪ Hornets forward Nic Batum hasn’t ruled himself out of Game 4, but it seems unlikely he’d play with the left foot strain he suffered in Game 2 in Miami.
▪ Hornets coach Steve Clifford went big in replacing Batum for Game 3, starting 7-foot rookie Frank Kaminsky at power forward and moving Marvin Williams to small forward.
▪ The Hornets committed only four turnovers in Game 3 and one of those was intentional, with the Hornets taking a shot-clock violation rather than shoot late in a blowout.
▪ Whiteside, who grew up in Gastonia, sat out practice Sunday with a thigh bruise.
