Who they'll face in the first round of the playoffs is very much a mystery, though.
There are realistically seven teams that could play the back-to-back champions in Round 1, ranging from the No. 5 Washington Wizards (just 3.5 games ahead of the No. 7 seed Charlotte Bobcats) to the No. 11 Cleveland Cavaliers (just four games behind the Atlanta Hawks).
We're going to break down these seven teams based on how big of a threat they would pose to the Heat, beginning with the smallest threat and concluding with the team Miami would least like to face in the first round.
