Eastern Conference Threat Meter for Miami Heat's Main Obstacles

The Miami Heat are by far the class of the Eastern Conference.

They have held a firm lead on the top seed in the East for nearly the entire first half of the season and don't appear to be letting that lead go anytime soon. 

Despite holding just a 6-6 record against the East's current playoff squads, no team possesses the talent or the chemistry of the NBA's reigning champions. 

Miami is 0-4 against New York, Chicago and Indiana this season, but would you really doubt them in a seven-game series against any of these teams in the postseason? 

The East is the NBA's ugly stepchild when it comes to the conferences, but the Knicks, Bulls and Pacers still pose a threat to some degree for dethroning the Heat. 

All stats are current as of January 29, 2013.
