Miami Heat: So what if the Heat are 0-3 against Boston this year? So what if the Lakers and Magic are struggling against teams with winning records? History says that those regular season struggles may not matter! Neil Paine at Basketball Reference crunched the numbers: “knowing how a team performed vs. elite teams actually tells you less about who wins a playoff series than a team’s record against all teams, even non-elite teams. Team records vs. the cream of the crop certainly sound meaningful, but when it comes to predicting success or failure in the playoffs, you’d be better off knowing how they did against the entire league.” It’s too bad those numbers don’t have eyes. Miami has looked outclassed against Boston in all probably 10 of 12 quarters this year.
Not buying it, Blake.
Surprise, I agree!
