Heat Playoff Schedule Is Set: Here's What's Standing Between Miami and a Three-Peat

Categories: Sports

Mercifully, the Heat's regular season came to an end Wednesday night with a 100-87 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat loss means Miami finishes the season with a 54-28 record, 12 games worse than last season's franchise record 66-win campaign.

With the second seed in the East locked up prior to the game, the Heat had nothing to play for, positioning-wise, and it showed. Wade got in some work as he shakes off some of the rust he's accumulated sitting out so many games this season, but other than that, it was all about getting it over with as the team moves on to more important things.

Other teams did have something to play for last night, though, as everything from the third seed to the seventh seed were in flux until late into the night.

Here's a breakdown of how everything landed after 82 games:

After Hot Start, the Marlins Settle Back Into Sucking

Categories: Sports

The Marlins surprising 5-1 start had us feeling positively optimistic. Maybe this season wouldn't be a slow, painful march to MLB irrelevance. Maybe, just maybe, this would be the first season the team actually lost a playoff series!

Sadly, reality has set back in. The team is in the midst of an eight-game losing streak and has dropped from near the top of the standings back down to the bottom rungs where they're so comfortable.

Did the Heat Tank Last Night on Purpose to Get the Number Two Seed?

Categories: Sports

We're number two! We're number two! The Miami Heat clinched the second seed in the Eastern Conference with last night's 114-93 loss to the Washington Wizards, a terrific feat for most teams, but not so much a reason to celebrate for your defending back-to-back NBA champions.

If resting LeBron James and Chris Bosh didn't tell you all you needed to know about the Miami Heat's priorities when it comes to seeding versus health, the Milwaukee Bucks-esque tanktastic level of play by their bench in the second-to-last game filled you in on the rest. They don't care about your silly seeding system. The fans might; they don't. They are totally over the foreplay.

Sometimes after going through a dark, dramatic period, nothing can do wonders like a brand-new wardrobe. Apparently, that was the Miami Hurricanes and Nike's thinking as they unveiled a new set of uniforms this weekend. Similar to other special-edition uniforms the team has worn in recent years, the full set is perhaps one of the biggest changes in the team's history.

If the players' reactions to the unveiling was any indication, they're a big hit.

Continuing what's become something of a tradition, the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders are back lip synching for their lives, and this time they really, really, really wanna zigga-zag-ah.

Yes, even though its the middle of spring 2014, the ladies have already shot their 2015 calendar at a resort in the Dominican Republic (because clearly there's no areas in Miami-Dade suitable for bikini photo shoots) and have released their annual lip dub to promote it.

It just can't ever be easy, can it?

Wednesday night, the Heat dropped a second straight game, 107-102. The loss, combined with the Indiana Pacers' win against the Milwaukee Bucks last night, means the Heat now holds the second seed in the East heading into the biggest game of the year versus Indiana Friday night. The game almost assuredly will determine home-court advantage throughout the Eastern side of the NBA playoffs.

If you lose your wallet in Miami, it's not uncommon never to get it back, and if you do, there might be a little something missing. Some people are not above taking a finder's fee. However, not everyone is terrible.

A young fan who lost his wallet at Marlins Park opening day not only had it returned but also found a new $20 inside along with a note asking him to pay the random act of kindness forward.
