The Miami Heat are officially a lock for the NBA Playoffs and that’s without having to go at it in the NBA’s newly instituted play-in tournament.

The Heat traded very little for Victor Oladipo. In hindsight, it was probably too much. Though he offered an upside, Oladipo carried significant health concerns. He just hasn’t been the same since his major quad injury with the Pacers. Oladipo hurt his knee four games into his Miami tenure, and now he’s done for the season.

BOSTON — The Celtics are just about guaranteed a spot in the play-in tournament as the No. 7 seed, barring a few improbable events going down the rest of the season. Boston endured its worst-case scenario over the past two games: getting swept by the Miami Heat.

Miami Heat All-Star Jimmy Butler has been a great player for a while, but his star rose to new heights thanks to his dominant performance in the NBA bubble in 2020. Butler brought his scrappy Heat squad all the way to the NBA Finals before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in six games.
For 60 years, I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest in homes with no air conditioning. With our temperate climate, we are accustomed to a week or two of uncomfortably warm weather each year, but it just doesn’t get hot enough to warrant the expense of air conditioning. Until the last...
The Miami Heat had an awful showing on Tuesday night. Without their superstar, Jimmy Butler, in the lineup, they were manhandled by Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. While that game is now in the rearview for Miami, moving forward, there are a few questions worth asking. How far can this team go, as currently constructed, is one good question.
