He drained a team-high four treys against the Hornets to give him 13 threes on the season. In addition to his team-high 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting, including 4-of-6 from deep, Wade also had four assists.

While Hassan Whiteside didn’t attempt a shot in the first quarter, he started to get going towards the end of the second period and kept up his sharp play for most of the night. He scored eight straight points for Miami near the end of the first half and carried that over to a seven-point third quarter.

Whiteside finished with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting, 12 rebounds and two blocks.

Kelly Olynyk amassed 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting from the field, 5-of-6 shooting from the charity stripe, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.
