NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- The New Orleans Hornets try to extend their winning streak over the Miami Heat to eight games on Saturday when they open a four-game homestand at New Orleans Arena.

The Hornets have won their last seven meetings with the Heat - sweeping the last two season series. Miami has not posted a victory in the series since April 6, 2001.

The Heat have lost their last six road games against the Hornets, including their first three at New Orleans Arena. Their last road win in the series came at Charlotte Coliseum on February 20, 2000.

New Orleans had a three-game winning streak snapped with an 85-82 road loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday.

Jamal Mashburn scored 20 points in his second game since returning from knee surgery and Baron Davis added 19 for the Hornets, who shot just 35 percent (30-of-87) from the floor, including 6-of-27 from 3-point range.

New Orleans has won three of its last four games at New Orleans Arena, where it is 14-8 this season.

Miami extended its home winning streak to three games with a 97-88 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.

Lamar Odom had 25 points and 14 rebounds and Caron Butler collected 11 and 11 for the Heat, who have won four of their last five games overall.

Miami has lost seven of its last nine games away from home to improve to just 6-20 on the road this season.
Wade Armstrong
Jones Augmon
Butler Mashburn
Odom Brown
Haslem Magloire

Prediction- Heat- 89
NO- 94

Its going to be a tough game to win, especially on the road with mash back
