..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.
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.
east also has the 3 (almost 4) worst teams in the league. i wouldnt mind playing those teams 4 times a year
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.
