This series has been as simple as the home teams doing well. Miami has lost twice on the road, but the Heat’s losing margin was less than Charlotte’s. The Heat are a different team at home, and that really shows in their shooting. Miami was 93 of 161 (57.7 percent) in two games at home and 57 of 155 (36.7 percent) on the road.
