Default Heat own Western Conference teams

..let's be real, the Eastern teams give the Heat tougher comp than the Western teams because the East actually plays tough defense. Even the bad teams in the East play hard nosed defense. In the West, they like playing that free flowing offensive style and that's plays right into the Heat's hands. memphis is the only teams out West that plays a Eastern style but even they have no shot against Miami because they can't score enough. This is why the heats dusted OKC Thunder so easily last year in the finals and this year in the reg season.

I would argue

Bulls
Knicks
Pacers
celtics

and even at points...the Bucks give Heat more comp than any of the Western teams.

Mavs are no comp for the Heat. Bucks would give the heat a harder time.

Uhh, no. If we extrapolate their current winning % against the East and West and put 'em in the EC(52 games against East, 30 against West), their record comes out to 42 wins(.515). Good for 8th seed in the East.

Still doesn't change the fact that Miami is far and away the league's best team against the West. The next best team isn't even within 10% of Miami's record.

i said miami was easily the best team in the league in my first post.

doesnt change the fact that the rest of the east is shit compared to west

5th seed in the west is better than the 2nd seed in the east.

Should have said they're easily the best against the West also, considering that was the point of the OP.

And you were way wrong about Dallas battling for HC in the East.
