CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kemba Walker scored 15 points, Bismack Biyombo had 12 points and 12 rebounds, and the surging Charlotte Hornets edged the Miami Heat 78-76 on Wednesday night.
Charlotte won for the eighth time in nine games despite going without a field goal in the final seven minutes. The Hornets had a 56-41 rebounding edge against the Heat, who played without Hassan Whiteside and Luol Deng.
Miami had a chance to win the game on its final possession, but Chris Bosh missed a 3-pointer from the top of the key. Mario Chalmers ran down the loose ball and fired up another 3 that missed from corner.
Bosh and Dwyane Wade each had 17 points for Miami.
