Miami HEAT Clinch League’s Best Record
Playing without four starters, the Heat defeated the Wizards 103-98 Wednesday, illustrating just how deep the Heat are.
After clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference on March 29, Miami secured home court throughout the playoffs with the victory over Washington. Miami improved to 62-16, setting a franchise record for victories in a season.
“It’s a minor thing. We want to keep the main thing the main thing,” Spoelstra said. “But at the same time, it is a nice accomplishment for our franchise and everybody involved. … We had to earn home court so we’ll have to prove it now when we get there.”
