close up of hand dunking basketballAs we move on in the 2014-15 NBA Season with coming to a close in about 12 days and on Tuesday the 7th of April 2015 we have an upcoming game between the Hornets of Charlotte and the Heat of Miami with the game tipping-off at 7:30 PM ET and the game to be played at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida and both of the teams only have 8 games left in their schedule to see if they can overcome their deficits for the last playoff spot in the East, which happens to be the 8th and last position. Presently the Heat is in front of the Hornets for that last position, but they are behind Boston by ½ of a game.

If Charlotte can create a win in this game they would be even with the Heat for that 8th spot, but that may be wishful thinking since the Heat are playing on their home court in this game. The star players in this game to watch and who can make the difference are Jefferson for the Hornets with 30.5 mpg, 16.7 ppg, 1.7 apg, 8.4 rbpg and Wade for the Heat with 31.5 mpg, 21.5ppg, 4.9 apg, 3.5 rbpg. For your info: mpg-minutes per game, ppg-point per game, apg- assists per game and rbpg- rebounds per game.

If you’re a Hornets fan and Bet on NBA at an Offshore sportsbook you still have some dim hope of making the playoffs, but they can’t afford to lose any more games, since in their last 15 games they have had only 5 wins. They need injured Jefferson back, and the continued performances from Williams and Walker. However, if Jefferson cannot return to the lineup, then the combo of Williams and Walker will have to carry the offense against the Heat and increase their scoring if that’s possible. The both have combined for 34 point in the last 6 Hornets game. In the last 7 road games the Hornets of Charlotte are 3-4 ATS.

If you’re a Heat fan from Miami, your teams chances of making the playoff in this 2014-15 season, after losing to the Pacers this past Sunday which was their 4th straight loss and against some of the best NBA Teams with the Spurs, Cavaliers and the Hawks.

They also have been with injuries and specifically to their center Whiteside who is a key to the offensive efforts and interior defensive efforts, out or hampered primarily with a hand injury. Their coach Spoelstra called this game the Heat’s most important game this season. Back on the 29th of March they were in 7th place and now are in 10th trying to make the 8th and last spot in the playoffs. If the Heat loses this game, the Hornets of Charlotte will overcome Miami by winning this match-up. Already this season Miami has lost 2 of the 3 games they played against the Hornets.

Coming up for Miami after this game they play 3 more home games against the Magic, Bulls and Raptor and play their last regular season game on the road against the 76’ers. In their last 10 games at home, Miami is 7-3 ATS. The media experts like the Heat in this game to win.
