Heat haven't done anything this year to solidly themselves as a scary team, the only person scary on their team is LeBron who's having the best season I ever seen anyone have in my life.

and the Bulls and Pacers are improved teams this year, especially defensively.

Heat are 0-2 very the Pacers year, scored 77 and 89 points each game. Pacers can easily shut down Miami in the playoffs and Miami should be concerned because Pacers are a team who have been creeping the last 3 years and are emerging as an elite defensive squad, the best in the NBA right now and that's without Granger.

Heat also haven't beat Chicago this season.

I don't see the Heat or Knicks beating Chitown or Indie in a 7 game series.
Heat bench isnt the best but theyll make shots when needed.
Miami lost the season series vs the bulls and celtics the last 2 years and beat boston both years and chicago the first year in the post season. Again, Miami is all about April, May and June Now you really think a Roseless Bulls team can beat the Heat 4 times in a series? Same with Indy? I don't see the Knicks beating any of those teams but Miami, surely. Miami's defense took a slight hit because their offense was pumped up. They're number 1 in offensive efficiency, and ranked 9th in opponents FG%. So for a team that is top 10 in defense and 1 in offense, I like their odds.
