12:39 PM ET 04.05 | The Miami Heat (58-16) have clinched the best record in the Eastern Conference and home court advantage, at least until the finals. They are the two-time defending Eastern Conference champions and most are predicting they will march their way to the finals for the third straight year. But don't tell that to the Knicks, Pacers, Bulls, or Celtics. We've seen this story before. Miami is 5-8 against the teams I just mentioned this season. Two years ago they were a combined 1-6 against the Bulls and Celtics. Last season they were 1-3 against Boston in the regular season. Miami has proven that regular season losses are not a concern to them as they eliminated the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls in 2011 and Boston again last year in the Eastern Conference Finals. Will anyone stop the Heat from advancing to the finals for the third straight year?

They seem a little out there in front... Well, actually it would take a pretty good size upset to bring them down...

I don't think the Knicks will beat the Heat in a 7 game series, but they have a good shot to make it a good series!!! IMO, the Knicks have to get "physical", not dirty, but "physical", meaning no easy layups or dunks for the Heat.

The way to beat the heat is to be HOT from the outside and stop them from taking the ball to the hole. NY does have the capability to do both- but the odds of them being/staying hot for that long is unlikelyIndy and chicago can't score enough & boston has too much age/injuryI still think brooklyn actually has the best chance - as they are solid at the C& PG- which are the only weaker spots for miami

Yeah, good comment!!
