Tyler Hansbrough isn’t playing for North Carolina anymore. He seems to have forgotten this.

Otherwise, the Charlotte Hornets big man would not have dared to challenge Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside at the rim Thursday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Luol Deng lofted a lob for the big fella, who emphatically slammed on the former Tar Heel hero with one hand.

Whiteside's effort cut the Hornets' lead to 82-75 at the start of the fourth quarter.
