In the ‘Heat’ of the Miami Playoff Picture

While the HEAT suffered tough losses that seemed almost given and won games no one expected them to win, they persevered through it all regardless of the circumstances. From picking up Victor Oladipo at the trade deadline to hearing about his recent season-ending injury, this team managed to work around that and fill in those gaps. Now on a four-game winning streak, the Miami HEAT just recently clinched a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and avoided the infamous and ominous Play-in Tournament after gaining a second consecutive victory against the Boston Celtics. 

“Our group has approached everything that’s been thrown at us with the right mindset. There’s been a lot of ups and downs and different experiences that I think we’ve used to develop some grit with this group. It’s the first box we wanna check and obviously we wanna keep going.”
