as long as their teams are in the playoffs running, they would absolutely play for their conference, knowing there's always a chance it could be them going to the finals.
the Heat had 3 players for the East and Spoelstra was coaching. you don't think they'd have given their all had Finals HC advantage been on the line? how about the West team? that team all had players on contending teams. you think Pop wouldn't want to assure his Spurs a Finals HC advantage if ever?
