Miami Heat: Predicting the Playoff Road for a Championship Repeat

August 7th, 2012 by Eric Johnson Leave a reply »
With a rather active offseason shaking things up in the NBA, the main thing that stands is Miami remains the best team in the league. While they could be a lock for the top seed in the East, just how will the playoff road look for Miami?

The Eastern Conference is wide open for those teams looking to make serious runs in the playoffs. Teams like the Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics will continue to build on last season's success, but other teams like the Atlanta Hawks and Orlando Magic could find themselves looking for a nice lottery pick.

With the Chicago Bulls missing Derrick Rose, we could see a team like the Brooklyn Nets leap up to grab home court advantage in the first round of playoff action. With their newly formed squad, a team like this could have an impact similar to that of the Los Angeles Clippers last season.

As it stands now, we could see some wild results in the upcoming season. The one thing we might not see is any team taking championship glory away from the Miami Heat in the 2012-13 campaign.

Let's check out just how this playoff picture could look.
