Showtime! The Charlotte Hornets are looking to close out the Miami Heat at home in a epic game 6 showdown. Watch the first round of the NBA playoffs on April 29th, at 8pm EST from Time Warner Cable Arena online here.
The Charlotte Hornets will host the Miami Heat in a huge game 6. The Heat have their backs up against a wall and need to come out swinging if they are going to have a chance at bringing this series back home for a game 7, currently losing the series 3-2. Will the Hornets provide a sting in the tale? Click down for the live stream!
What’s astonishing about Charlotte at the moment is that going into game 3 they were 2-0 down in the series. Their fightback has been somewhat miraculous, thanks in part to Frank Kaminsky and Al Jefferson. The pair have been instrumental in scoring bucket loads of points, so long may that continue in game 6.
However, the Heat will fight till the end. Even though they’re without their star player Chris Bosh till the end of the season, Dwyane Wade will be looking to put aside his refereeing controversy behind him. Dwayne thought he was fouled with 2.6 seconds to go as he attempted a shot to tie the game and force overtime. However, the call never came.
Game 6 was a tight encounter that went right to the buzzer on Apr. 27. But the Hornets stole that game to take a lead in the series in a 90-88 win. No one expected Charlotte to put up such a fight, but they’ve been quite the surprise outfit this time round.
We didn’t expect Charlotte to be leading this one, and it looks decidedly dicey for the Heat right now. But they may just be able to pull this one out the bag and force the series into another game.
