4. Miami Plays in the Eastern Conference

Luckily for Miami, they’re not in the Western Conference. Only in the Eastern Conference can you have a sub-.500 record and still rest easy knowing a playoff spot is right around the corner. At 9-10, the Heat are currently a 7th seed in the East, whereas the 9-10 Denver Nuggets are currently a 10th seed in the West. Regardless, playing in a weaker conference doesn’t excuse mediocre play, especially when you’re in the midst of a tough road trip that continues in Memphis on Sunday. Miami should be able to remain competitive and gather some much needed momentum going forward; however, rest assured, even if their record dips, as long as they finish with an even record or better late in the season, they should be fine considering a six-game-below-.500 Atlanta Hawks squad locked down an 8th seed in last year’s playoffs.
