Default Can Miami get in on this Number 1 seed race?

They are 49-22, behind Boston who is 50-20 and then Chicago is #1 at 51-19.
Miami's next few games are really easy and I think the Heat can finish the season around that 60 win mark.

3/25 vs. Philadelphia
3/27 vs. Houston
3/29 @ Cleveland (2nd coming of LeBron James )
3/30 @ Washington
4/1 @ Minnesota
4/3 @ New Jersey
4/6 vs. Milwaukee
4/8 vs. Charlotte
4/10 vs. Boston
4/11 @ Atlanta
4/13 @ Toronto

With the 11 games left, I see the Heat possibly going 11-0, with maybe a loss to Boston.

The bulls have been great and I think will wrap up that one seed. Miami will most likely be 3rd seed. I dont think they will catch us and if we tie, then we own the tie breaker over them.

I do see us losing to them and Id rather lose to them now so our guys can be pisssed when we face em in the playoffs.

it depends on the other teams, if they lose more we can get in to it.

That schedule does look tasty. The bulls and c's both have tougher schedules to close out the season. Should be interesting.

Chicago has the 1st seed locked. Piss ant schedule, and they are dialed in.

they still got Boston, Orlando, and worst of all the Knicks. Chicago's not the type of team that's just gonna rip off wins easily against bottom feeders like Miami will. It's possible they go on epic fail losing tear like Boston did.

The Bulls should hold the top spot. They want and need it more than Boston or Miami.

If Miami gets the 2nd seed over Boston that would be a big win for them. That's the one team that I think they need home court over.

The thing is Boston and Chicago both already beat Miami three times. If Miami got #1 seed, wouldnt they still not have home court advantage against them?

if miami has the better overall record, the h2h record doesnt matter. it only matters if miami finishes with the same record with chi or/and boston

if miami has a better record, then miami would have the HCA.. If they are tied for the best record with any of them, then the team they are tied with will have the HCA, due to beating them 3 times in the regular season.
