Miami will get another chance at picking up ground on the 3rd spot when they take on the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
Miami continues to battle for seeding in the East and things bode well for them here against the struggling Kings.
The Heat currently sit tied with the Hornets and Celtics, 1.0 full game back of the Hawks for the 3rd spot. The battle is exceptionally important as home court in the first round and the ability to avoid the Cavaliers in the Conference Finals is important.
Miami will come into this one on a bit of a low, as they went into Los Angeles as 10 point favorites and fell in overtime thanks to a Julius Randle overtime buzzer beater. The loss exceptionally hurt as this is a stretch where the Heat can really make up some ground against sub .500 teams.
The Heat handled the Kings last time these two teams met back on 11/19 as they put up 116 points in a 7 point win.
The Kings meanwhile are left wondering what could have been.
This team was the hottest in the NBA for a stretch in January and it looked like they were going to put all the drama aside and compete for a playoff spot. However, a double overtime loss did them in as they ultimately went into a tailspin.
Losing streaks became a consistent thing for Los Angeles since that stretch and now they will try to play the spoiler role down the rest of the season.
So many questions remain for this Kings team too. The two major ones will be about Rajon Rondo and weather he’ll be in purple next season and what will be done with George Karl. The Kings head coach was ready to pack his bags at the all star break, but team officials decided to let him go the rest of the season.
