Final: Heat 97, Hornets 90. Dwyane Wade scores 10 of his 23 in the fourth quarter, including his first 3-pointers of 2016, to make sure this series will be decided on Miami's turf if not Miami's terms. Game 7 on Sunday.

A huge hug from Chris Bosh for Dwyane Wade, who pushes the Heat to a Game 7 through sheer force of will. (And some nice 3s)

Heat beat Hornets 97-90 to force a decisive Game 7. The ViewFromVegas is they did it as 2-point road underdogs and +110 on the money line. The game stayed under the betting total of 192.

Dwyane Wade, who hadn't hit a 3 in 2016, drills one and then a shot with Courtney Lee draped all over him to seal a 97-90 win. Hornets get 37 from Kemba Walker, the second-most in Hornets franchise playoff history, but are heading back to Miami for a Game 7 on Sunday.

Another dagger from Dwyane Wade. He's so pumped with anger and adrenaline that he does an extra lap around the timeout huddle and doesn't sit. He's just barking.

Dwyane Wade with his second 3-pointer in clutch time. He told reporters the other day that he CHOOSES not to shoot him, not that he can't. What a time to dust off that weapon. Heat up 93-88.

Luke Walton was the Lakers first choice and the only candidate they interviewed, source tells ESPN. They had other meetings lined up but cancelled them after yesterday's interview with Walton in Oakland.

This is the coming out party for Kemba Walker. If y'all ain't watching this, y'all are missing something special. Unreal performance

Hornets climb back from 9-point deficit to get to within 90-88 with 1:33 left to play. I don't know how this finishes, but it's truly been a privilege to cover this series.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey: "I know we'll respond. We can't allow our offense to go over to the defensive end."

Justin Verrier ESPN Staff Writer 

Kemba Walker up to 37 points on the night, 14 coming in the fourth. Heat up 90-88 with 1:33 left.

That was Dwyane Wade's first 3-pointer of 2016. Meanwhile, Hassan Whiteside fouls out.

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak on new Lakers coach Luke Walton: "We're excited to bring Luke back to Los Angeles, where we feel he's going to start an outstanding coaching career," Kupchak said in a team release. "He's one of the brightest young coaching minds in the game and we feel fortunate that he'll be leading the on-court future of our team." Walton played for the Lakers, winning championships in 2009 and 2010.

Marc Stein ESPN Senior Writer 

After taking two seasons' worth of deserved heat, today is a win for the Lakers, moving so quickly to convince Luke Walton take a TOUGH job.
