ManilaHeat

So its 8th seed after 82 games. With a chance for 7th. We can beat Philly and face NY in first rd. I dnt want them to play 2 more games before actual playoffs.

Bout30man

I am perhaps the only one on this site who, while unhappy with the loss of a player and the depth, and who hopes Kevin comes back soon, feels Thomas is the better player to get the second team minutes in the playoffs.

heat for life

we are not beating phily.i hope we do just dont see it.then we play prob chi thats a 50 50 game.think we can play boston tough .if not us like to see embid and jokic in finals

Deadsori123

Pacers making a statement.

For some reason,the lyrics “Deja vu.I’ve just been in this place before” keeps playing in my head when I look at our Playoff situation. Hopefully ,we can beat the sixers just to avoid playing two playin games.

Big_guy305

Back to play-in for us, the heat only got themselves to blame for that. Now we gotta play the sixers for the 7th seed. I’m fine with that because we play better on the road anyways. Bucks was actively losing today, so if we do get lucky , and get the 7th seed , we would play knicks. Those pathetic, embarrassing losses to grizzlies, wizards, nets, etc came back to haunt us. Hopefully we can still get the 7th seed, if not then it’s either a 1st round or play in exit. If any of those latter things happen…then Jimmy better take a paycut or prepare to get traded.

Bryant showing out!

Big_guy305

Bucks wanna be the 3rd seed lol

Big_guy305

Looks like 8th seed for us.

Big_guy305

Best delon wright game in a heat uniform.

Big_guy305

Looking like it’s gonna be the 8th seed for us unless the lethargic bucks step it up in the 4th quarter.

Big_guy305

Bryant isn’t as good as love but can still get a double double in less then 20 minutes.

Deadsori123

your right. he is using his minutes wisely

Big_guy305

Yes definitely, but hopefully we can get love back soon, he gives us a better chance to make it out the first round, but only if we’re the 7th seed.

Deadsori123

looks like the hawks give up.

heat for life

jimmy playing?

Big_guy305

Duh

heat for life

in 3rd qtr havent noticed him at all

Big_guy305

He will probably be on the bench for the rest of the game now.

heat for life

playin city here we come

Big_guy305

I guess pacers and hawks just said forget about playing defense.

heat for life

if love is out we are a worse team if bryant is out who gives a crape?

Deadsori123

Really Bucks? And I thought hawks were catching up but they let go off the pedal a little to early. Hopefully,they adjust better in the second half

Bout30man

That second quarter was a beautiful display of how good the Heat can play. Wright had his moments, as did almost everyone else. In a likely meaningless game against a tanking team, it was still very impressive

heat for life

against a terribble team.do that vs bost phil u got something 30/that aint happening vs bost phily

heat for life

need milw win and a ind or phily loss last 2 prob aint happening

Reality Czech

Big_guy305

The floodgates are open.

heat for life

ty that was funny

heat for life

wow delon wright best game as a heater

heat for life

delon wright 34 assists 2 turnovers

Deadsori123

God damn it. Love is very important and losing him hurts.we need his experience and leadership.He was vital in our last playoff run.Also who else can also give a double double in less than 20 min.

Big_guy305

We will definitely miss love a lot 😢, Bryant probably can give close to the same production as love.

heat for life

diff player love shoots 3s passes.bryant prob little better d.love much better player

Big_guy305

Ik they’re aren’t the same , I’m talking from the standpoint that Bryant comes closest to being able to give a double double in less the 20 mins.

heat for life

loves playing at a diff level than bryant ever could.

Big_guy305

Let’s agree to disagree cuz you don’t understand Mr flip flopper.

Love with an arm contusion.

heat for life

losing love really hurts

heat for life

jjj much better player than caleb

Deadsori123

This is a weird situation. watching the game while also keeping track of the other 3 games. Nervous as hell. The Hawks and Pacers game is pure offensive showdown with no defense.34-49 in the first quarter is crazy.

Big_guy305

We’re all nervous and heat put us in this position. I don’t think pacers will lose, but hopefully im wrong. I do think magic and sixers might lose or just magic.

heat for life

sixers wont lose maxey wont let them

Big_guy305

We shall see

heat for life
