Miami Heat over Phoenix Suns in 7

I think this would be a truly incredible series. Booker vs. Butler, Ayton vs. Adebayo, Cam Johnson vs. Duncan Robinson, Rubio vs. Dragic, these teams are both very deep and well-oiled machines right now.

The Suns were able to beat the Heat over the weekend, pulling away in the last few minutes, but that Heat team was missing Butler, Dragic, and Kendrick Nunn (I realize the Suns are still missing Kelly Oubre and Arron Baynes).

The Heat are so well-coached with the consistently most underrated coach in the NBA in Erik Spoelstra and are probably even deeper than the Phoenix Suns with a lot more playoff experience.

This would be a very fun series but Miami escapes.

Boston Celtics over Phoenix Suns in 7

People might think I am nuts for this one, but hear me out. Deandre Ayton would annihilate the Celtics (he has thus far in his NBA career) and their lack of a true center, Bridges would frustrate the living hell out of Jayson Tatum, and Devin Booker would love the opportunity to prove he is the superior player in this series.

This is one match-up where the Suns could really use Kelly Oubre as another talented scorer and defender to match up with the likes of Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Gordon Hayward. Having Aron Baynes to keep Enes Kanter off the glass and provide some intel to the Celtics system would be nice too.

The Celtics just have a little too much talent for the Suns to handle, this would be the series I would want to see the most in the Eastern Conference though.
