I'm starting to believe it's possible they go a long way. The Celtics look old and declining. If not the Celtics beating them in the east then who?
Chicago looks good. Actually, I'm pretty excited about the match-up with Celts in the 2nd round with home-court with Miami. The Perkins trade was huge, it gave Miami a favorable match-ups at almost every position except PG.
I still think Chicago is too young, and will falter in playoffs, but they do have the home court in the East and have the size inside to beat Miami. But, I really like the match-ups at SG and SF against Chicago and I think Wade will be the key defender when going up against Rondo and possibly Rose.
At this point, I wished Miami had an impact defender instead of Mike Miller at SF/SG position. But, we will see - anything can happen in the playoffs, but I feel much better about the Heat than I did back in Febuary.
