Last Saturday was 305 Day in Miami…And the conference leading Miami Heat were hosting the 2nd place Philadelphia 76ers at FTX Arena. The Heat, which does a great job of incorporating snippets of entertainment during timeouts and breaks highlighted the Miami Springs as one of the neighbor”hoods of Miami.” They featured a picture of the Curtiss Mansion while highlighting MIAMI SPRINGS on the big jumbotron above the arena. Check it out below:
As you can see, the Miami Heat featured Miami Springs while the game was still relatively tight as the Heat was leading the Sixers by 7 points with 5 minutes and 10 seconds left in the game. After the Miami Springs highlight, the Heat clamped down on the Sixers and only allowed them to score 2 points in the final five minutes.
Final score: Miami 99 – Philadelphia 82.
The Miami Heat continues to lead the Eastern Conference with a record of 44 – 22.
