MiamiHerald / Five takeaways from the Heat’s 113-107 overtime loss in Indiana:
1. The chances of catching No. 4 Philadelphia or No. 5 Indiana are slim at best after this result, with Miami now trailing both by four games and eight games to play.
So the likelihood now is that the Heat will finish sixth, seventh or eighth in the East, with seventh by far the most appealing because that likely would mean a matchup with Boston, which is expected to be without Kyrie Irving for three to six weeks after a knee procedure.
Finishing eighth means a matchup with Toronto and sixth likely means a first-round series against surging Cleveland.
Heat's best playoff spot might be where it is was before OT loss: seventh
