    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington scored 16 points each and the Miami Heat held off a late Charlotte Hornets rally, 104-98, on Friday (Saturday, Manila time).

    It was Miami's 24th win in its past 30 games against Charlotte, which opened a stretch of six of seven home games with a loss. Johnson and Ellington combined for 10-of-16 shooting on 3-pointers.

    Kemba Walker led Charlotte (10-18) with 23 points after leaving the game in the first half with a wrist injury. He returned to start the second half with his left wrist wrapped, and his 3-pointer with 3:16 left pulled Charlotte within 100-93.
