Every team in the NBA's Eastern Conference has its problems that it must fix in order to represent the conference in the NBA Finals this season. Certain teams have smaller problems that are better defined as tweaks, while other teams have full-blown problems that could result in a fatal downfall if not addressed.
As of now, the East has two teams in the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat that are definite favorites to meet up in the Eastern Conference finals with a trip to the NBA Finals at stake. If certain second-tier teams can address their problems, the Bulls and the Heat could be dethroned.
With teams having around 20 games left to play in the regular season, there is time to fix problems and go into the playoffs streaking.
