I don't have as much faith in Indiana as everyone else seems to. They're still young, and IMO putting too much importance in winning all these regular season games to prove how good they are, and I think it could cost them in the end. Not that I expert them to just lose games on purpose, but IMO Miami and a team like the Spurs know how to pace themselves, the Spurs know how to do it while STILL winning all these games. I hope I'm wrong, but I see guys like George and Stephenson still not being ready to close like Durant and Westbrook haven't and LeBron and the Heat outdoing them in the end one more time.

I also do not trust George or anyone Indy has to close a series against the Heat, as I haven't seen it happen yet. LeBron has shown he can be mediocre in a series and then still close, Wade has shown he can, hell even Bosh has proven he can show up in a big game. Until I actually see it happen, I'm not going to believe they can beat Miami.

The Heat are so much more stacked than the Lakers ever were. The Lakers are also in one of the most historically competitive western conferences of all time while the Heat are playing in one of the most historically weak eastern conferences of all time. Also the Lakers were swept early in the Playoffs by the eventual champs, Brooklyn isn't going to win a championship this season.
