MiamiHerald / Five takeaways from the Heat’s 123-119 overtime loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night:
1. Miami lost its ninth straight road game and the season series to the lottery-bound Kings for the first time since 2002.
A series of bad losses against lottery teams kept the Heat out of the playoffs last season. It probably won’t this time around because the Detroit Pistons (30-37) trail Miami (36-33) by five games and still have a series of tough road games left to play.
But the bad losses the Heat has racked up this season will likely keep Miami on track for a first round matchup with top seeds Toronto or Boston. Avoiding another ugly loss Wednesday was important. It didn’t happen. Miami remains a half game behind the Bucks for seventh place in the East – even after Milwaukee lost to lottery-bound Orlando earlier on Wednesday. It was a missed opportunity.
