Hornets on roll heading into meeting with Heat

The Charlotte Hornets will seek to continue the momentum created by coach Steve Clifford's return when they go after a second consecutive home win and third straight overall Saturday night against the Miami Heat.

All five starters and two reserves scored in double figures Wednesday when the Hornets thrashed the Washington Wizards 133-109 in Clifford's first game back after taking a five-week leave of absence to deal with stress-related headaches.

A 77-point first half created a comfortable situation for all Hornets in the win, which was their second in a row against a team currently battling for playoff position in the Eastern Conference. Charlotte won 118-107 at Detroit on Monday.
