The Charlotte Hornets took a 3-2 series lead against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference playoffs after a 90-88 win Wednesday night.
After a Courtney Lee go-ahead three-pointer with 25 seconds left in the game, Charlotte sealed the win when Lee blocked Heat guard Dwyane Wade's layup attempt with four seconds to go.
