Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

Miami Heat have now locked up the number one overall seed in the conference, being 11.5 games ahead of the Indiana Pacers. Boston Celtics are currently ranked seventh, but the Milwaukee Bucks are only two games behind them.

If the Celtics were to slip up, we could be in for a very exciting first round series between the Heat and the Celtics.

Only a few days ago, the two teams went up against each other and put on a great show. Despite missing Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett, Boston had control of the game until the very end, or at least until LeBron James dropped the game winning jumper.

Celtics and Heat have developed a rivalry, and while neither team would want to see each other so early in the postseason, it remains a possibility.
