Not even close! All the games our guys sat out for rest and injury.... Miami needed every bit of that 27 game win streak to get homecourt. The western conference would eat the eastern conference alive. It's sad when you win 45 or more games and you have to go home. But the high 30's are enough to qualify in the East. You probably get 10 teams from the West and 6 from the East in a 16 team playoff.
