Miami Heat Team Report – March 11

=== Miami Heat Team Report – March 11 ===

(Sports Network) – The Heat had a bucket of cold water tossed on them
Wednesday night, as they saw a three-game winning streak come to an end at the
hands of the New Orleans Hornets.

Miami dropped a 95-84 decision to the Hornets. Eddie Jones led five double
figures scorers for the Heat with 18 points. Jones also tallied eight assists
and six rebounds.

Udonis Haslem added 15 points and 13 rebounds, while Lamar Odom tacked on 12
points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. Dwyane Wade and Rafer Alston posted 11
points apiece.

The Heat were badly outrebounded, 58-38, while being outscored, 42-13, at the
charity stripe. It didn’t help that they hit just 5-of-24 from three-point
range.

Miami fell to 8-25 on the road this season. The Heat have dropped five of
their last six road tilts.

Miami (28-37) fell one-half game behind Boston for the eighth and final
playoff spot in the East.

The Heat have a day off before hosting the Seattle SuperSonics at
AmericanAirlines Arena Friday night.
