One of the best defensive outfits in the NBA meets one of the best offensive units when Miami welcomes Charlotte to FTX Arena on Wednesday.
Miami ranks equal third in the league for points conceded, while Charlotte ranks fifth for points scored, so it will be a great batltle of opposing styles.
The Heat are probably the more balanced of the two teams and have put any qualms about a riff between players and Erik Spoelstra to bed with four wins on the bounce.
Charlotte has not be able to deal with the Heat at any stage this season.
Of the three games played against Miami, the Hornets have come up short every time.
But with Jimmy Butler and P.J Tucker set to miss this clash due to injuries, the door might be open for Charlotte for avoid the season sweep.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Chicago Bulls meet at the United Center for a big Eastern Conference tiff.
Both teams are looking for a win heading into the playoffs having split their last eight games of the regular season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo has come up big again for the Bucks this season and is averaging 30.1 points and 11.6 rebounds, but there is reason to believe he could miss this match with a knee injury.
He is listed as probable, so that will put Bucks fans at ease for the time being.
Milwaukee has had the edge over Chicago in 2021/22 having cruised to a 3-0 season series record thanks to some big numbers from Giannis and his partner in crime Khris Middleton.
DeMar DeRozan will need his troops in Nikola Vucevic and Zach LaVine to fire if they are any chance of causing the upset here.
The Bucks to cover the spread.
Suggested Bet: Milwaukee -4.5 at $1.89
