At the moment, the Pacers (40-12) have the best record in the conference, but the Heat (37-14) seem less concerned about hosting a potential Game 7. The Raptors are a distant third in the standings (28-24).
Current odds to win the Eastern Conference (via Sportsbook.com): Pacers (5/6), Heat (1/1) and then Raptors and Nets are tied for third with 30/1 odds. The Heat will pick up after the All-Star Break with games against the Mavs on Tuesday and then the Thunder on Thursday. As great as Kevin Durant has been playing, he is expected to get back teammate Russell Westbrook for Thursday's showdown.
Could this be a potential NBA Finals preview? Or will the Pacers (or another team) represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals?
