Heat lock down #2 seed in East

Miami will play either Washington or Charlotte


MIAMI – The Miami Heat have locked down the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Heat rested LeBron James and Chris Bosh against Washington on Monday night.

The Wizards crushed the Heat.

While the Heat know their seed, they do not yet know their opponent.

Miami will play either Washington or Charlotte.

If Boston beats the Wizards on Wednesday and Charlotte beats Chicago, the Heat will face the Wizards.

However, if Washington beats Boston or both Charlotte and Washington lose, then the Heat will play the Bobcats.

The playoffs are set to begin this weekend.

The exact time of the Heat's games will be determined by the NBA after the regular season ends on Wednesday night.
