Eastern Conference Playoffs
Essential reading: Good stuff from Matt Moore of CBS Sports. Also check out Sebastian Pruti's excellent breakdowns at NBA Playbook of the strengths and weaknesses of the Heat & Sixers on both the offensive and defensive end.
Prediction: Heat in 5. Philadelphia has had a great season and has overachieved, but LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have generally made lunch meat out of overachievers and heavy underdogs all season. Miami is going to face a lot of obstacles down the road if they plan on winning a title this season, but the first round of the Eastern Conference isn't going to be the place they meet their demise.
