The Heat are really fast and long on the perimeter. However, in theory, at least, I think the Mavs are in a better situation than Chicago. We won't know what happens in practice unless they meet-up, which still isn't a guarantee.

Unlike Chicago, Dallas can put out a lineup with 2 guys who can create off the bounce. This matters, especially if Dirk starts to go off and help comes. Chicago has guys who can score, but Rose is the only one who can create shots for himself and others on a consitent basis. That's a big reason why they are bothered by Miami's rotations. Dallas is a different story. Kidd, Terry, and Barea are all capable of doing something with their dribble. And, since Kidd is the size of a shooting guard, you can play Terry or Berea along side him for significant minutes.
