Charlotte Hornets Down The Miami Heat Behind Nicolas Batum's Triple Double

Written By;

The Miami Heat traveled to Charlotte,NC to take on the Hornets and they literally walked into a hornet's nest losing 99-81.

The Hornets swarmed from tip-off, going up by 20 points leading up to half time, it became quite evident that this would become an old school shellacking.

The Charlotte Hornets thrived behind strong aggressive play, also helped that the Heat had 18 turnovers and poor three point shooting going 6 of 21.

The Hornets had a strong game from Nicolas Batum who quietly had a triple double dropping 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, also adding to the mix were; Power Forward Marvin Williams who went for 18 points and four rebounds, then point guard Kemba Walker had quite the game dropping 18 points, five rebounds, five steals and four assists.

The Miami Heat at one point were down by thirty points in the fourth quarter and had no signs of life or energy. The Heat shot 39 percent going 29 of 75, Tyler Johnson scored a career high 20 points, adding two rebounds and two assists. Dwyane Wade and Gerald Green finished with 11 points each, while bosh added just 7 points and two rebounds.

The Miami Heat now have lost three out of the last five games, next the Heat continue their road trip in Indiana as they take on the Pacers Friday at 7pm.
