The Miami Heat preceded their Wednesday night playoff matchup against the Boston Celtics with a moment of silence and a call to action in the wake of the elementary school shooting in Texas that killed 19 children and two teachers.

"The Heat organization, the Boston Celtics and the NBA family also mourn those who lost their lives in the senseless shooting that took place yesterday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas," said the public address announcer at Miami's FTX Arena. "Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends, and the entire Robb Elementary School and Uvalde community."

After the moment of silence, the announcer urged people to contact their state's senators "to leave a message demanding their support for common-sense gun laws." He also encouraged fans to register to vote ahead of the fall elections. Read more.
