Does it matter who we play regarding the second round?
How does the second round get determined?
For example, if we beat the the number 1 seed, does the second round get the lowest seed available then?
1st round KNICKS VS HEAT
EVERYONE IN THE WORLD WANTS TO SEE THIS HAPPEN
all the pressure is on the HEAT imo. Everyone is already saying the knicks aren't beating the heat
If the Heat choke in this series, the Media will crumble them into pieces
I really think the key to beating the heat is the Zone defense. The knicks usually play man 2 man defense which usually leads to someone stuck on some kind of mismatch. If we can turn the heat into a jumpshooting team and limit their fast breaks we have a good shot at beating them.
You know what....... I want the Heat over the Bulls now.
I was telling him I wouldn't be surprised if the Heats get upset I'm 50/50 on this series honestly it really comes down if Lebron can mentally handle playing against Melo and how healthy Wade really is.
I think this question, about Lebron "being able to handle the pressure" of playing with Melo, is wack sauce.
Pressure?? Playing against Melo!?
Lebron doesn't feel pressure from pudgy bums like Melo.
Phil Jax next season!
Chances against Heat are better than Bulls IMHO.
Melo can offset LeBron, Shump can defend Wade quite well, and Chandler must stop Bosh, which he can.
This will not be easy, but we have a decent chance. As others have said, zone these guys to slow them down. Doc Rivers has proved this.
If Stat comes up big and JR & Novacain hit 3's it could be glory days again.
Bulls are a much tougher matchup, way better point, comparable pieces at all other positions, deeper bench. Heat, better #2 spot, slightly better #3, comparable #4 and way worse center and point position + no bench. I'm taking Miami.
