Team News and Game Preview
The Heat have won eight games in January and have defeated the Pelicans and Celtics coming into the game Friday night with Orlando.
With Jimmy Butler missing time, it has been the Bam Adebayo show. The Heat center scored 30 points against the Celtics, including the game-winning jumper in the three-point victory.
Haywood Highsmith added 15 points with 10 rebounds in the victory against Boston in his best game of the season. Jimmy Butler is ready to go for Friday’s game with the Magic, which should put him on track for Sunday as well.
The Hornets have won three of the last five after a brutal start to January, and they topped the Bulls by 15 points on Thursday night.
LaMelo Ball flirted with a triple-double, but Terry Rozier led the way with 28 points in the victory and Mason Plumlee added 21 points and 12 rebounds.
When the Hornets’ offense is clicking, they are a fun team to watch, which was evident on Thursday against Chicago.
Heat vs Hornets Prediction
The Heat stunned everybody by defeating the Celtics without Jimmy Butler in the lineup, and they are trending in the right direction over the past month. The Hornets are hit-and-miss, but you can expect LaMelo Ball to be a threat every night.
Nonetheless, the Heat are getting Jimmy Butler back, and Bam Adebayo has been terrific lately. Miami wins the game by double-digits in Charlotte.
