GO HEAT!!!

This win is nothing to brag about against a tanker. But, the play of Jovic and JJJ was very encouraging. You know who was really impressive though, Barrett. We could use a player like him.

Magic, Pacers and 76ers are in a three-way tie at 46-35, one game ahead of 45-36 Miami. If all three teams win on Sunday, 76ers will get the 7th spot because of tie-breakers and will host Miami in first game of play-in round.

Hopefully, Philly beats the Nets and Orlando loses to the Bucks or Indiana loses to the Hawks. The Heat has a much better chance against the Pacers or Magic in the first game of the play-in round than red hot Philly, especially if Scary Terry and Duncan are both back.

Otherwise, it looks like Philly in the first game of the play-in round. If Miami loses to Philly and beats the winner of the #9 Chicago vs #10 Atlanta game, it will face 63-18 Boston (in Boston) in the first round.

GO PHILLY!

Sharkey

If Orlando loses and the other two win, which is the likely outcome, Heat will face Orlando in the play-in round. Pretty good match up in my opinion. And if we win, we play against number two seed Milwaukee, which is a better match up than the Knicks or Celtics. I don’t think we could ask for more, depending on the circumstances.

One last regular season game. And Heat’s fate is not in their hands anymore. Everyone it seems like their giving their eulogy for the season already. I’ll reserve mine when its all over. One last miracle? One small sliver of hope. Lezzgo!!

heat for life

go heat

oregoner

Does everyone else look at the standings and think about where the Heat would be if they had beat the Pacers and Sixers last week? Or just split? This team could have been a 5-seed! Instead they’re stuck in 8th and hoping everyone else loses out

heat for life

if pat would have given jimmy more help a few years ago i would have met rc 30 big and manila on bisc blvd in july

Big_guy305

just got home from the gym and finally seen the 2nd half. This was a very good win, and feels even better knowing we still got a chance at the 6th seed. Special shoutout to the big 3…. Kevin was A LOVE MACHINE, and the best player tonight in my opinion with his championship saviness. up next jovic continues growing and getting better offensively and defensively. Lastly Mr. Juan wick breaking down the rookie wall with a career high 9 assists.

heat for life

very good win come on big 25-55 team bro.

Big_guy305

We still lost to them last time .

heat for life

they prob had og and their best player barnes didnt play.gimme freeman liberty grady dick and gary temple everyday of the week

Big_guy305

We played them after they made the trade, so they didn’t have og. Also we had temple at the beginning of career, but we released him like when we had pat Beverly, and did the same to him .

Reality Czech

need a nets win over phily

Sharkey

Well if orlando loses, it is heat vs magic in the play in. Which is better than 76ers with embiid and coached by nick nurse in my opinion. And we would get 7th place and face the bucks in the playoffs, which is better than celtics or knicks.

ManilaHeat
