The Miami Heat are the talk of the basketball world after eliminating the Milwaukee Bucks from postseason play on Wednesday night, but so is sideline reporter Ashley ShahAhmadi.
You might not have known about Ashley before last night unless you’re a Charlotte Hornets or Atlanta Braves fan. But she is trending online after her interview with Jimmy Butler, who scored 42 points to help his team become just the sixth in league history to boot a top seed out of the playoffs after coming in as the eighth seed.
The Heat struggled all season and even lost their first Play-In game, so even their fans must have expected to get swept. Yet here they are, into the second round after just five games, in spite of losing Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo.
Butler, who scored 56 points to fire Miami to a comeback win on their home floor in Game 4, pulled off another monster game on Wednesday night, helping his team overcome a 16-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter to win 128-126 in overtime.
ShahAhmadi, who covers the Hornets and Braves for Bally Sports, has gone national in the playoffs as she’s on sideline assignment for NBA TV. Following her postgame chat with the Heat’s No. 22, fans began doing some research. You could check out some of their reactions right below:
