Friday’s win was a good sign for a Heat team that has dropped games against losing teams this season. They dropped two games earlier this season against the rebuilding Atlanta Hawks. Miami hopes it can keep this up with its next four games against losing teams.
The 2018 season ended earlier than the Miami Heat would have hoped. After going 44-38 and earning the 6th seed in the playoffs Coach Erik Spoelstra‘s team was only able to win one game in the playoffs before falling to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat were still able to win the Southeast division last year. This season the Heat are hoping to not only win more games but more importantly win them when they count in the playoffs. As if they needed any additional motivation, this is the last dance for the future first-ballot hall-of- famer Dwyane Wade.
