The Charlotte Hornets 2015-16 season is over. The Miami Heat proved to be too much for the swarm in their first game seven in over 14 years.
The issue for the Hornets? Not Dwyane Wade, but rather Goran Dragic. When penciling advantages two weeks ago before the series began, almost everyone gave the point guard position to Charlotte. While that was the case for a good amount of the series, it was not in game seven.
A main reason the Heat got the best of the Hornets in this series was the Hornets' inability to control the glass. The Hornets were out rebounded in each of the last four games of this series. Another glaring problem was lack of offensive production from Marvin Williams. During the season, Williams was the Hornets third best offensive player, trailing only Walker and Batum. Other than game five, the North Carolina product was existent offensively.
A bright spot for the Hornets? For the first time in a long while, their season ends in May instead of April.
