    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?

    lol no.

    Winer of 1st seed vs 8th seed matchup meets 4th seed vs 5th seed winner in semifinals.

    Winner of 2nd seed vs 7th seed matchup meets winner of 3th seed vs 6th seed matchup.

    Well the bad part about this conversation is we wont have to worry about who we face in 2nd round. It will be who the Knicks are watching on TV playing in the second round.

    We lost any chance of 2nd round talk when we tanked in Cleveland

    Other than that, Miami is a horribly difficult matchup in a best of 7 series.

    I'd say it's 50-50 with NFL Playoff rules, We'd go to South Bitch play our game as a unit, with the knowledge in mind that Melo can get things done, while Lechocke does his disappearing act, Wade picks up his mandatory minor injury, Bosh gets his empty double double and the rest of them do **** all.....yeah, I could see us beating them if the series was no series but one game like in the NFL.

    But in a best of 7 series - 4 wins against the Heat with NO homecourt.....forget it.
    you are right. usually you can have an upset in the NFL with a top team going down to an underdog in playoffs or SB cause it is just one game. if you take that 18-0 pats team or the 15-1 packer team and play them 7 times more then likely the better team will come out on top./ So with us vs bulls or heat. well. in a long series the better team will come out on top. we may steal a game or 2 but in the end we lose in 5or 6games. we need to worry about not getting totally embarrassed like last season and get swept vs worring about who we may play in 2nd round. lol

    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 don't know that the Knicks could get upset their mentally weak, I would not be surprise if Lebron has another break down.

    Don't forget just last year the top seeded Spurs in West got eliminated by the 8th seeded Grizzles.

    I was talking to my friend who's a die hard Knicks fan was talking about how he thinks with Wade's injury Shumpert might really shut him down, Lebron might fold having to play against Melo who's playing better than anyone in the league right now with so much pressure, and Amare coming back in good shape that he's really confident NY will beat MIA.

    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.

    Yep I hear ya. That's pretty much why I came around to favoring a Miami matchup over Chicago. The X Factor is Bosh imo. Amare might get his but he cant let Bosh get 25 right back. I think our bench when it is clicking is leaps and bounds better than theirs tho.

    Yea Bosh is the X-factor and has Chandlers number for some reason hopefully some how Amare can do a better job than him than Chandler has this year.

    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.

    Heat 4-0.

    Chicago 4-0.

    Phil Jax next season!

    Man you're really going on my last damn nerve with your love for Lebron.

    Please add him on Facebook or join a Miami Heat forum to talk with similar fanboys.

    Lebron:

    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.

    We don't need to worry about that.
