The Heat finished off the New Jersey Nets in 2OT propelling them into a 1st round match-up with the Boston Celtics.
How much did the Celtics care about their playoff opponent? According to ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg, the players were filing out of the locker room even though the Heat/Nets game was on TV.
The Celtics swept the season series 3-0; winning 92-85 on Nov. 29, 112-106 in OT (remember Rondo's game-tying buzzer beater?) on Jan. 6, and 107-102 on Feb. 3.
The Heat finished the season at 47-35, just three games behind the Celtics. Miami is red hot, winning 12 of 13 and 18 of 22.
Quick prediction: Celtics in 6
