MIAMI - So much intrigue, crammed into 14 seconds. Nacer Chadli Jersey . A pair of former Connecticut stars, going 1-on-1 as if they were willing to decide it themselves. A one-point game, one team about to end a losing streak and a tip-in try that added more drama with every bounce off the rim.Definitely an experience, Luol Deng said.For the Miami Heat, a welcomed one.Deng scored 26 points, Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers each added 20 and the Heat watched Charlotte miss three potential go-ahead shots in the final seconds on the way to beating the Hornets 94-93 on Sunday night and snapping a three-game home slide.It was a good step, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.Chalmers had 10 assists for his second double-double of the season and Shabazz Napier scored 14 for the Heat.Al Jefferson finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which got 17 points from Lance Stephenson and 16 from Kemba Walker but wound up seeing its skid reach five games. The Hornets trailed by nine at the half and then led by as many as eight in the fourth, before Miami rallied.The stretch of games weve played has definitely taken their toll on our confidence, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said.Working from the right side of the lane, Bosh spun free from Cody Zeller and scored from the right baseline to give Miami a 94-93 lead with 31 seconds remaining.Thats when the fun started.Walker missed with 26 seconds left and Charlotte down by one. The Heat got the rebound and the Hornets appeared to be trying to foul Chalmers near midcourt.No foul was called, the ball got knocked away and after a deflection out of bounds the Hornets had possession with 14 seconds remaining. Walker went at Napier — UConn great vs. UConn great — and missed a short jumper, Jefferson got a good try at the tip, and the ball bounced off the rim as the horn sounded.I got a pretty good look, Walker said.Said Bosh: Im just glad we won. For real.Charlottes lead was eight midway through the fourth, and the Heat were mired in a stretch where they had two field goals in more than 9 minutes. But Miami put together a flurry, setting up the back-and-forth finish.Bosh hit a 3-pointer, Napier had a pair of free throws after a steal and then — off a drive-and-dish by Chalmers — Napier added a 3-pointer to cap an eight-point, 43-second burst and give Miami an 87-86 lead.There were four more lead changes from there.We had our shots, Jefferson said. We had the shots we wanted. We just didnt make them.TIP-INSHornets: Stephenson isnt exactly a fan favourite in Miami, given his role in the Pacers-Heat rivalry in recent seasons. They hate me everywhere, he told fans sitting courtside during a fourth-quarter stoppage. ... Charlotte isnt planning on having F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right foot) back anytime soon, and G P.J. Hairston (ankle) is also likely out for a few more days, Clifford said.Heat: G Dwyane Wade (left hamstring) missed his sixth straight game. ... G Norris Cole (dislocated finger) sat for the second straight game and F Chris Andersen departed with 2:59 left in the first quarter with a right ankle sprain. ... Houston Astros draft pick Bryan Radziewski, a former University of Miami star left-hander, was part of the sold-out crowd.BIG THIRDCharlotte opened the second half on an 11-2 run, on the way to outscoring Miami 28-14 in the first 12 minutes following intermission. The Heat won despite shooting 38 per cent in the second half.CLOSING UNITPartly because of injuries, partly because the unit was working, Spoelstra didnt make a single substitution in the final 7:28. Chalmers got to the foul line 10 times in the fourth quarter and Miami got 15 free throws to Charlottes three in the final period.UP NEXTHornets: Host the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.Heat: Host Golden State on Tuesday. Leander Dendoncker Belgium Jersey . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Darcy Kuemper, Minnesota (5): He was calm, poised, and looked comfortable all game. Youri Tielemans Jersey . New York then missed its next six shots and scored only two points the rest of the night. The Los Angeles Clippers defence and the Knicks general ineptitude both played a role in the unsurprising finish to a meeting of two teams headed in opposite directions. http://www.soccerbelgiumteamonline.com/Adnan-Januzaj-UEFA-European-Belgium-Jersey/ . The biggest shock of this seasons competition was on when Watford took a 2-0 lead after 30 minutes at Etihad Stadium, only for a remarkable Aguero-led comeback by City in the final half-hour. The Argentina striker produced clinical finishes in the 60th and 79th minutes to level the score before Aleksandar Kolarov put City in front in the 87th.OTTAWA -- Johan Franzen has no explanation for his success in Ottawa, but cant deny he definitely enjoys playing in the nations capital. The Detroit Red Wings winger was at his best once again scoring three goals in a 6-1 win over the Ottawa Senators Thursday night. Franzen, who returned to the Red Wings lineup Wednesday after playing just one of the past 24 games due to a concussion, has previously enjoyed success against the Senators. In February 2011, Franzen scored five goals against the Senators. "I like playing here," said Franzen. "We have Erik Karlsson on the other side and we grew up in the same little town so its always fun to play him. Its something special every time. Im just happy to keep him from the scoreboard. Its always fun to play him." Detroit coach Mike Babcock is pleased to see Franzen having success. "Hes an important player for us," said Babcock. "He has the ability, he has the touch. Lots of guys play real hard and cant score (Franzen) can score." It appears he also has the ability to get under his opponents skin. Ottawas Chris Neil went after Franzen late in the game and while nothing came of it Franzen was less than impressed. "He tried to hit me and he couldnt move me so I think he got a little upset," said Franzen. "I have no clue. He usually shows up when the game is over and tries to be the hero. He puts his cape on and goes and flies out there. I dont know." Riley Sheahan, Tomas Jurco and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit. Jonas Gustavsson stopped 37 shots. With the win the Red Wings (28-20-12) have a five-point lead over the Senators (26-23-11) for the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference standings. "Coming back from the break and you start 2-0 its way better than the opposite way," said Babcock. "We know were in a battle for our playoff life. We understand that so getting off to a good start is imperative." The Senators had little explanation for their performance. "Its an extremely disappointing loss," said Ottawa captain Jason Spezza. "We knew that it was a very important game for us and to lose it by that score is obviously not what we were looking for." Bobby Ryan scored the lone goal for the Senators, who were playing their first game since the Olympic break. Robin Lehner allowed six goals on 15 shots before Andrew Hammond made his NHL debut, stopping all nine shots he faced. Things fell apart for the Senators in a nine-minute span in the first period. Ryan had a goal called back after it was ruled that he kicked it in and then the Senators leading goal scorer missed two great chances on the power play. Things began to unravel after the Red Wings scored on consecutive shots. Ottawaas Cody Ceci gave the puck up deep in the Senators end as he made a no-look behind-the-back pass that landed right on the stick of Sheahan who ripped a shot past Lehner. Koen Casteels Belgium Jersey. Just 29 seconds later Franzen scored his first as he was left all alone to give Detroit a 2-0 lead. Franzen then made it 3-0 with a power-play goal as once again he was left alone, this time on the opposite side of the ice. Following the game Lehner could not hide his disappointment. "They got a few goals pretty fast and then it snowballed," said Lehner. "I think weve all got to do better in our zone and Ive got to do better. It was one of the most toughest games Ive played personally, but its over now. Theres not much to say." Detroit made it 4-0 on a delayed penalty call with two minutes remaining in the period. Niklas Kronwall, who finished with three assists, had a shot from just inside the blue-line deflected and ended up on Jurcos stick, who roofed it over Lehner. The 18,931 on hand at Canadian Tire Centre were so disappointed they booed the home team off the ice. Senators coach Paul MacLean had few words to explain his teams performance. "We played a lot better than the score maybe indicated, but the score is what it is and you cant change that," said MacLean. When asked who was the best player MacLean couldnt help but say "Johan Franzen I think. I think were all tied for the worst." Franzen completed his hat trick early in the second period. Ryan finally got the Senators on board at the four-minute mark of the second, but any celebration was short-lived as Detroit made it 6-1 as Tatar beat Lehner from in close. That marked the end of Lehners appearance, opening the door for Hammond to make his first NHL appearance. Craig Anderson was unavailable due to the birth of his second child. Despite the surprise appearance Hammond held his own and made a number of big saves. "Not letting anything in was a good start," said Hammond. "Any kid from Canada growing up playing hockey its their dream to play in the NHL and its pretty special for me to be one of those guys thats lucky enough now to say Ive played in the NHL. Its very special." This was the fourth and final meeting between the teams as they split the season series.
