Hornets aim to start turnaround against Heat

The Charlotte Hornets hope to use a favorable home schedule to make a run at the .500 mark when they take on the Miami Heat on Friday night to begin a stretch of six of seven at the Spectrum Center.

The Hornets (10-17) find themselves in a big hole in the early Eastern Conference playoff chase thanks in large part to a 2-11 road record to start the season.

They'll have to deal with the road just once in the next two weeks, however, as they look to improve on an 8-6 home mark.
