Before the Miami Heat closed its five-game homestand Monday night with a blowout win over the Phoenix Suns to move into seventh place in the East, Heat president Pat Riley was asked Sunday about the state of the team heading into the final stretch of the regular season and if finishing eighth in the conference would satisfy him.
