Hornets snap 14-year playoff drought, beat Heat 96-80

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) After the Charlotte Hornets dropped the first two games of their first-round series against the Miami Heat, team owner Michael Jordan and assistant coach Patrick Ewing approached coach Steve Clifford with a suggestion: Post up rookie 7-footer Frank Kaminsky more.

"When you have two first-ballot Hall of Famers. ... and they both say, `Post Frank,"' Clifford joked, "you have to post Frank."

The strategy worked.

Jeremy Lin had 18 points, while Kaminsky scored nine of his 15 points during an 18-0 run in the third quarter that broke open a tie game as the Hornets beat the Heat 96-80 on Saturday night to snap a 12-game playoff losing streak and earn their first postseason victory in 14 years.

The Heat lead the series 2-1, with Game 4 set for Monday night.

"This isn't about winning one playoff game, it's about winning a playoff series," Clifford said of ending the team's playoff drought. "This gives us a chance."

Kemba Walker had 17 for Charlotte. Marvin Williams, a non-factor in the first two games while hitting just 1 of 17 shots, finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds.

Luol Deng scored 19 points on five 3-pointers, and Dwyane Wade added 17 for Miami. Hassan Whiteside had 13 points and 18 rebounds but battled foul trouble.

Miami, which shot 58 percent from the field in the first two games, was limited to 34 percent shooting.

The Hornets outscored the Heat 52-28 in the paint and had four turnovers to Miami's 15.

"We made a lot of mistakes," Deng said. "In the first two games we did a good job with of taking away of guys' tendencies. They rebounded and ran out when they got the lead and keep going."

Looking to combat the Heat's height advantage on the perimeter, Clifford moved Williams to small forward - in place of the injured Nicolas Batum - and inserted Kaminsky and Al Jefferson into the starting lineup.

It didn't help early on when Deng knocked down four 3-pointers in the first six minutes on Kaminsky.

But in the third quarter Kaminsky got matched up on Wade in the low post and took over, almost scoring at will.

"Obviously, it didn't go great," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of the matchup of Wade on Kaminsky.

Kaminsky had 11 points in the period, including a turnaround jumper over Joe Johnson. Lin followed with a 3-pointer from the right wing to push the lead to 14, raising the fans clad in black "Enter the swarm" T-shirts and white Hornets headbands off their seats.

Clifford texted Kaminsky on Saturday morning with the game plan.

"When I woke up this morning, that was the first thing that I saw," Kaminsky said. "So I had the chance to think about it all day. And I talked to him a little bit about before walkthrough this morning. He said, `When you get in the post, be patient and go at them."'

The Hornets would push the lead to 24 in the fourth quarter with Lin scoring and creating off the fast break.

"You have to give them credit because they came out with great energy during that spurt," Spoelstra said.

Charlotte has been strong at home all season, going 31-10 during the regular season.

Miami started off Game 3 similar to the previous two, with Deng hitting four 3-point attempts in the first six minutes for an early 20-15 lead.

But Charlotte withstood the early Heat assault and took the lead near the end of the first quarter behind eight points from Lin, who found his way to the basket repeatedly and drew a second foul on Whiteside.

"The way we played all night is how we played all year," Walker said. "Our energy and enthusiasm is one of the best. That's how we play."

TIP-INS

Heat: After making 5 of 7 3-pointers to start the game, Miami made just 1 of its next 13 attempts.

Hornets: Were 21 of 22 from the foul line led by Walker, who was 8 of 8. ... Batum's status for Game 4 remains up in the air.

BOSH ON THE SIDELINE

For the first time since the All-Star break, Chris Bosh was with the Heat for a road game.

"He brings a steadying influence, a leadership at all levels - even when he's not on the floor," Spoelstra said. "That is why I always lean on him. He's like another coach. He has been through our system and sees the game through a different lens than most players. All of that helps."

JORDAN ON HAND

Jordan took his regular seat at the end of the team's bench, repeatedly clapping his hands together hard.

AVOIDING HISTORY

Had Charlotte lost, it would have matched the New York Knicks' record of 13 straight postseason defeats.
