Only Spurs or Clippers. CP3 has the heart to go at bron. And spurs have the vets that will never doubt when they get in a hole.

You need the heart+hot shooting ala 11 mavs to beat them. The heat will jump out on you.. but if you hit them when they think youre down....

Clippers/Spurs would give them that work.

The only team I'm worried about is the Spurs.

Grizzlies were threatening when they had Gay playing because he matched up well with Lebron and gave them a nice scoring touch. But now, they aren't so tough a match up, and I'd favor us in 5 or so.

The Spurs....nobody else has a chance because they don't have enough consistent inside play....

Spurs can make Miami play a half court game, and hurt us in the paint. Pop is the best coach. Teams that pass the ball and shoot 3s well can hurt Miami. SA has the best chance, but I still think Miami would win the series.

I'll be surprised if any team can take Miami beyond 6 games in the Playoffs. Even though the Celtics have tanked the regular season again, they took the Miami to game 7 last year and matched up well with Miami this year.

I pick the Celtics.

I'd generally be confident with the Clippers, but with how disinterested they have been playing recently, I can't see them lasting more than six games unless they get the fire back.

As of now, Memphis and San Antonio are the top picks because they both have the big men to destroy the weak front line of Miami but both also play really well as a team and have the defenders to throw at the Heat's wings or the best coach in the association.

Denver is a decent distant third as they have the bodies to throw at LeBron & Wade (Wilson, Iggy, Gallo) and have some size as well that can cause issues (Faried, McGee, Kofous) and a damn good vet (Andre, who I despise ). But I just can't trust them to upset Miami.

Whether folks want to admit it or not, Indiana will again be one of the toughest series they play in the playoffs, no team in the west will give them as tough a fight as the Pacers or Celtics because of the rivalries involved, familiarity, the players don't really like each other and the team's styles of play. Physical and inside for the Pacers with the ability to hit three's and the Celtics with their physical play, great defense with KG, and experience...

clearly you havent seen them play since gay who was shooting an almost sub 40% clip. Theyve been winning, playing better team ball, playing better team defense.

i do not think they can beat the heat but they will give them some sort of trouble in that series imo with their bigs being significantly better than those on the heat. Theyll need to find a solution for lebron though which no one really has at this point.
