Prediction: Heat in 4

What a season for defending champion Miami Heat. The Big Three combination of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh led the Heat to a 27-game winning streak, which was the second-longest in NBA history. James, who will certainly be the league’s MVP, shot a career-high 56 percent from the field this year. The Heat had the NBA’s best record at 66-16, thanks to a deep bench with veterans Ray Allen, Shane Battier and Rashard Lewis. Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks had an up-and-down season. The duo of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis has been the backbone of the team, combining to average 36.5 points per game, ranking them as the third-highest scoring backcourt in the league this year. Adding sharpshooter J.J. Redick at the trade deadline has given the Bucks a major scoring punch off of the bench as well.
