In a rematch of the previous year's Eastern Conference Finals, the Heat defeated the Indiana Pacers in six games to become the first team to win four consecutive Eastern Conference championships since the Boston Celtics did so in the 1984-1987 seasons. Miami's quest for a three-peat ended when the San Antonio Spurs, whom they met in a rematch of the 2013 NBA Finals, won the NBA Finals by a 4-1 margin.

Following the season, LeBron James left the Heat in free agency to rejoin the Cleveland Cavaliers.
