Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat are back in action! They will open the season at home against the Charlotte Hornets. Here's what you need to know.

Miami Heat at Charlotte Hornets
7:30 PM EST @ AmericanAirlines Arena
TV: SunSports, LP; Radio: 790 the Ticket

Probable Starters
Kemba Walker PG Goran Dragic
Nicolas Batum SG Dwyane Wade
P.J. Hairston SF Luol Deng
Cody Zeller PF Chris Bosh
Al Jefferson C Hassan Whiteside

Here's some quick game analysis for the game. The Heat will have to contain Al Jefferson on the glass and on offense, but the length of Hassan Whiteside should help with that. Dwyane Wade will struggle to operate with the length of Batum, but he should just be fine. Chris Bosh should just have a great game, this is a favorable matchup for him.

The Hornets are a good team. Even though Miami will be the favorite, Charlotte will give them a great battle. But the Heat have the upper hand if they are running on all cylinders.

It should be a hype atmosphere in Miami. Make sure you watch and come back and join us in the GameThread to chat about it!
