The Miami Heat got a great win on Thursday night over the Charlotte Hornets. First off, the win was not great because of the quality of the competition or it wasn’t great because they played “great”, but what it made it great is the totality and summation of all events in the Heat’s season that has led up to it thus far.

Coming into the game three games under .500, 4-7 to be exact, the Heat needed something they could cling to. Though this win should be the first of many that are needed to completely right the ship, this is a solid start.

Though it was the lowly Hornets, at just 3-9 coming into the contest, this was a game that saw the Heat, pretty much, lead from wire to wire, only to have to come through and make game-winning plays all over again to actually secure the victory.

This was a game that saw them execute at their best, endure adversity, and come out on the other side of it as their ultimate leader in Jimmy Butler did what he should be doing on a regular basis—taking them home.
