08:04 AM ET 05.25 | Pacers coach Frank Vogel had some very flattering words for Chris Bosh, even if the Heat adjusted to his absence in two straight wins to close out the Pacers. "Chris Bosh is a fantastic player," he said, "but when he goes down, that means more touches for LeBron and Wade. That's not exactly an advantage [for us]." ... Who's next? Could be Philadelphia. Probably will be Boston. Not sure it matters. And that's not me talking -- that's Frank Vogel. "We held them under 40 percent [shooting] the first three games," Vogel said. "But after Game 3, [James and Wade] played at such a high level, I don't know that anyone can beat them." Anyone in the East, anyone in the West. Anyone.

Not by the Cs either.

Only team that will have a chance against the Heat without Bosh is the Spurs. With Bosh no one is beating them.

You have to score buckets to beat the Heat especially the 3ball. The Spurs will be the only team left that is capable of exploiting this.

The C's play them tough when all are healthy-especially rondo

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I see the Cs getting swept well maybe if Bosh is still out they will luck up and win one, but not by much.

This is a terrible matchup for the C's because Rondo gambles too much on defense and Chalmers is going to have a field day shooting 3s.

The C's have no answer for Dwade or Lebron. It just looks really bad for them. Heat in 4 or 5.

It's coming down to a match of youth and experience. Personally I want a Philly/Miami match.
Boston is too old for the Heat... not to add the same Boston team got groped by Heat 4-1 last year. Philly's grown up and I think they can give Heat a good run and even beat them. Nonetheless Miami aint beating OKC or Spurs anyways..

Boston won 3 of 4 in the regular season........With Bosh playing.......

After what we saw in game 6 vs Philly,

You really think those 3 regular season wins matter? The C's will have to score baskets I don't see how they will keep up.

The only team that has a chance to beat us is San Antonio.

OKC

Too young and too dumb.

Or is it too dumb and young. Either way we need to break out the ole Boyz II Men anthem for OKC, "Although we've come, to the end of the road, it's unnatural" <GhosTown harmonizes>

Thry remind me of a great TEAM oriented system that resembles the 2011 Mavs a little but the Heat will still bring it home this year. 2012 is the year of the Miami Heat! Lebron revenge on Timmy D for that 2007 NBA Finals sweep!
