Entering Monday, the Miami Heat are 38-38 on the season. They currently sit in the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Orlando Magic are just a half game back of the Heat. Miami has six games remaining in the regular-season.
BetOnline.ag has placed the Heat's odds to make the playoffs at +170. Miami can help their cause on Monday by defeating the Boston Celtics in Boston.
Basketball fans around the world are hoping the Heat make the postseason so they can watch Dwyane Wade play in the playoffs one final time. Wade, of course, is retiring from the NBA after this season ends.
After Monday's game against the Celtics, Miami will face Boston again on Wednesday in South Beach. They'll finish off the season with games against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets.
The Heat are only averaging 105.6 points per game on the season. That's 26th in the NBA. Miami, however, has been one of the top defensive teams in the league, as they are allowing the third fewest points per game. Miami's defense is going to have to be stellar to finish the season off if they want to make it to the postseason.
