These two teams have gone way under the total in their last two games. Charlotte has gone to a bigger lineup and has held Dwyane Wade to just 11-of-31 in the last two games. Yet Charlotte had their own issues on offense as well. They've averaged just 92.5 points in their last two games but won both. Expect the Game 5 to be another low-scoring affair.
