On Tuesday evening, the Miami Heat are hosting the Atlanta Hawks for their play-in tournament game.
The franchise has made the NBA Playoffs in each of the last three seasons and is coming off a year where they made the Eastern Conference Finals.
That said, the Heat have had an up-and-down 2022-23 season, and even if they beat the Hawks, they will be the seventh seed and have to go up against the Boston Celtics in the first round.
Their best player (Jimmy Butler) is 33 years old, so before he exits his prime, the Heat should look to see what they can do to improve the roster drastically.
One of their most significant areas of concern is point guard because Kyle Lowry, at 37, is on the decline.
Kyle Lowry scored 33 points his highest-scoring game in his two Miami seasons – for the Heat, who will host either Toronto or Chicago on Friday to decide the No. 8 seed and a spot against top overall seed Milwaukee in Round 1. The Raptors and Bulls play Wednesday; the winner of Friday’s game opens the series against the Bucks on Sunday.
The Hawks took two timeouts in the first 3:53 of the third quarter, as most of what was a 24-point lead with 2:37 left in the first half – 63-39 Atlanta was the margin – got whittled away, and fast.
Miami cut the margin to 15 by halftime, then opened the third quarter on a 16-6 run. Add it all up, and it was a 27-8 run in about 7 minutes of play to get the Heat within 71-66.
But the Hawks had an answer then, and every other time the Heat made a run. The Atlanta lead was 13 again going into the fourth, and when Miami was within six midway through the final quarter, the Hawks scored five straight to restore a double-digit edge.
And now, a team that was the East’s No. 1 seed last spring is one game from elimination.
“Nothing about this season has been easy,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We’re going to do this the hard way.”
Miami became the 16th franchise to participate in the play-in tournament. Chicago, Toronto and Oklahoma City will stretch that list out to 19 teams on Wednesday. That leaves only Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Milwaukee, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Sacramento and Utah as clubs who have yet to be part of the play-in event.
