Heat in 7

I'm assuming Shaq's not as hurt as missing a few games would suggest-- I think he was saving up. We'll see about that.

Pistons are actually a bad matchup for the Heat in many ways: they've got big bodies who can play D on Shaq, they've got a guard (Prince) who can post on Wade or Jones, and they've got a guy (Hamilton) who can tire Wade out on screens if that's the matchup.

I'm picking the Heat anyway despite those bad matchups because Shaq and Wade plus some key 3pt shooting will be too much for the Pistons to handle despite their advantages on paper.
