Heat secure 13th win in playoffs, most for a No. 8 seed
After defeating the Nuggets in Game 2 in Denver on Monday, Miami secured its 13th win of the postseason. That officially became the most by any No. 8 seed in NBA history, surpassing the previous record (12) set by the Knicks in 1998-99. This year’s Miami squad and the 1999 Knicks are the only two 8-seeds to ever advance past the second round. Aside from the 1999 Knicks, per Basketball-Reference, no other No. 8 seed has ever won more than seven games in a single postseason.
