After an embarrassing 115-113 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, the Heat dropped to 0-6 while wearing the Vice jerseys. Below are the six games Miami has worn the alternates this season:
November 9, 2018 vs Pacers: Loss 110-102
November 10, 2018 vs Wizards: Loss 116-110
November 12, 2018 vs 76ers: Loss 124-114
November 18, 2018 vs Lakers: Loss 113-97
November 20, 2018 vs Nets: Loss 104-92
November 27, 2018 vs Hawks: Loss 115-113
That is nearly half the team's losses that have come in their Vice jerseys -- the Heat are 7-7 when wearing their traditional jerseys. The more startling fact is that these are all home games, and they're still all losses! Miami is 3-2 at home outside of Vice nights.
It's a shame too, given how good the jerseys look, but we're about one or two more losses away from the jerseys being officially cursed.
Miami still has 14 Vice Nights left this season, so they might want to get the jerseys blessed by a local priest before this becomes a serious problem.
