You can’t blame the Heat fans for this one, and what the hell is up with the Brooklyn Nets essentially handing away the No. 1 pick, while helping the Bulls make the playoffs.
Its the Heat’s own fault they had to grind their way back after starting the year 11-30, and it looked like the Heat would make it to the playoffs, but they fell just short on Wednesday night.
The Heat needed the Hawks to beat the Pacers or the Nets to beat the Bulls.
It was not to be, as the Hawks and Nets rested players during blowout losses. Heat fans were not happy nor impressed, and took to Twitter to let both franchises know.
UPDATE: Still true. https://t.co/styVJuKwIj
