A sellout crowd of 19,420 at Charlotte’s Spectrum Center went home disappointed on Saturday as a huge third quarter lifted the Miami Heat past the Charlotte Hornets 104-86.

It was Charlotte’s fourth straight loss to drop its record to 28-26.

On a night when Gordon Hayward went zero for seven with no points, Teyy Rozier had 16 points and Miles Bridges 15 for Charlotte.

Charlotte led 51-46 at halftime before the Heat outscored the Hornets 35-8 in the third quarter.
