Duncan Robinson scored 24 points and the Miami Heat overcame some shoddy final-minute sequences to hold on for a 116-114 victory against the host Charlotte Hornets on Monday night.

Jimmy Butler (23 points) and Caleb Martin (20 points and nine rebounds) combined with reserves Kevin Love (19 points) and Jaime Jaquez Jr. (18 points), respectively, to give Miami enough offense. Duncan connected on five 3-point shots and Love had four treys.

The Heat won for just the third time in their past eight games. Two of Miami's past seven wins overall came in Charlotte within a month's span.
