The defending champions, Miami Heat, will take on the Brooklyn Nets in the second round of the 2014 NBA Playoffs. Oddsmakers have the Heat highly favored in the series, but speculators should not forget that Brooklyn took the season series 4-0. If the regular season is any preview to what lies ahead in the series then a lot of money can be made on the underdog, The Brooklyn Nets.
Nevertheless, it is no secret that The Nets Organization brought in Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett for this particular moment. If Pierce and Garnett can pose the same threat that they did in 2012 in which they took the Heat to a game 6, then they can surely take the Heat into deep waters within the series.
However, with the Heat coming off a sweep over the Bobcats, it is evident that they are in playoff form. It will not be easy for anyone to knock off the defending champions, who are known to turn it up a couple of gears come playoff time.
