The division rival Miami Heat and Charlotte Hornets are set to renew hostilities on Thursday when they meet at Spectrum Center.

ABOUT THE HEAT (10-22): Point guard Goran Dragic made the trip despite sitting out Tuesday’s loss to Oklahoma City due to back spasms, and a decision on whether or not he plays against the Hornets will be made Thursday. With Miami’s season going nowhere, speculation has begun that Dragic is being shopped, and he certainly is one of the club’s better bargaining chips in terms of what it could receive in a trade. The 30-year-old Dragic leads Miami in scoring (19.3 points) and assists (6.6) while shooting a team-best 42 percent from 3-point range.

ABOUT THE HORNETS (18-14): Shooting guard Nicolas Batum put forth a stellar performance against the Magic with 20 points, nine rebounds and eight assists. Batum has scored 20 or more points in four straight games and six of his last seven after reaching 20 just twice over his first 24 contests. Reserve shooting guard Marco Belinelli (ankle) likely will miss his third straight game on Thursday, meaning Jeremy Lamb (15.5 points over the last two contests) again will be Batum’s main backup.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hornets listed as 6-point favorites versus the Heat, while the game’s total is sitting at 204 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Charlotte was a 120-101 winner in its last match on the road against the Magic. They covered the -4.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 221 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Miami, they were a 106-94 loser as they battled the Thunder at home. The Heat failed to cover in the match as a +5-point underdog, while 200 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
