Miami Heat vs. New Orleans Hornets: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Miami
Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat breezed past the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night, capturing their 25th road victory of the season by a score of 108-89.

With the win, the Heat clinched home-court advantage through the Eastern Conference Finals and improved their record to a league-best 57-15.

LeBron James was the offensive catalyst for the Heat once again, dropping a game-high 36 points on 13-of-20 shooting (including 7-of-10 from three).

At one point, James knocked down six consecutive threes, setting the tone for a Heat team that converted on a staggering 60.9 percent of their looks from the field.

Coming off of their first loss in 27 games, a comfortable victory was exactly what the Heat needed to get back on the winning track.

Next up for Miami is a matchup with the San Antonio Spurs on Easter Sunday.
