Hassan Whiteside and Cody Zeller have some history.

With the Heat and Hornets competing for a playoff spot, the centers’ tempers flared.

Whiteside received a technical foul and Zeller escaped with just a personal foul. But Miami won, 112-99, moving into a tie with the Bulls and Pacers for seventh place. Ninth-place Charlotte is 2.5 games out of playoff position with three games left.
