This is one of the most frustrating and accurate parts of these playoffs. Miami has played lights out and looks like the best team in the East. We have seen situations like this in the NHL, where a team squeaks into the playoffs and gets on a roll, but it doesn’t normally happen in the NBA. Miami has shown how meaningless regular season success is when your team is ready and has the right focus for. playoff run.The Heat are playing unbelievably, keep in mind that Butler sat out game 2 of the NY series and if he doesn’t, good chance they sweep that and are 11-1 combined so far against MIL/NY/BOS. They play every game like it’s a NCAA tournament elimination game, it’s like watching prime Princeton led by two superstars.
