Heat hope to resume winning ways vs. Pelicans

The Miami Heat and the host New Orleans Pelicans both will be looking for a bounce-back win when they meet Thursday night.

The Heat took a 94-80 defeat to the visiting Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday, ending a six-game winning streak. The surge had allowed Miami to join a logjam of teams battling for spots in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The Pelicans have a lot more work to do, but they are within striking distance of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference. They recorded a signature win against the NBA-leading Utah Jazz on Monday before slipping in a 128-124 home loss to the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
