as seen through my eyes. Head-to-Head Ben Wallace vs. Shaquille O'Neal Advantage: Miami Rasheed Wallace vs. Udonis Haslem Advantage: Detroit Tayshaun Prince vs. Antoine Walker Advantage: Even Rip Hamilton vs. Dwyane Wade Advantage: Miami Chauncey Billups vs. Jason Williams Advantage: Detroit Detroit Bench vs. Miami Bench Advantage: Miami Flip Saunders vs. Pat Riley Advantage: Miami Palace of Auburn Hills vs. American Airlines Arena Advantage: Detroit That's the way I see it folks. The Miami bench has a narrow edge over the Detroit second teamers. The two starting Pistons advantages at Power Forward and Point Guard are by a large margin. The Pistons will have to play very well to overcome the Heat. Miami Heat Scouting Report Shaquille O'Neal - The Big Diesel. The most dominant paint scorer of the last 10 years and arguably one of the greatest centers to every play the game. He's lost some weight, making conditioning less of an issue, but the way the refs are calling his bulldozer attack has also changed his ability to directly attack the rim. Ben Wallace will need help in the form of fresh legs to slow Shaq. Udonis Haslem - Less of a scorer this season, Haslem still has the ability to hit open 18 foot jump shots and mix it up on the boards. The 5th option of the Miami starters, Haslem will look to make timely contributions with put backs and tips. Assuming he is not guarding Rasheed Wallace at the 3 point line. Antoine Walker - Despite looking lost earlier in the season, 'Toine has really raised his game in the playoffs. He's attacking the rim, rebounding and nailing three pointers at an alarming rate. Walker seems to have found his role as the third option, creating his own offense instead of waiting for Shaq and Wade to provide him with touches. Dwyane Wade - This is not LeBron James. In only his 3rd season, Wade has established himself as a playoff veteran with 38 games to his credit. He plays hurt, he's fearless to the rim, his passing is tremendous for a two guard, and his jumper is improving. Jason Williams - "White Chocolate" was once the flashiest AND1 Streetball style point guard in the NBA. Under the tutelage of Hubie Brown and Mike Fratello in Memphis, he reigned in the slick moves for more consistent play. This playoffs however, JWill's knee problems have limited his effectiveness. A questionable outside shooter and decision maker, he does possess the ability to feed the post effectively and run a fast break with the efficiency of a poor man's Jason Kidd. His defense is not recognized as a strong suit. Alonzo Mourning - A veteran center, with tremendous shot blocking skills. Energy rebounder and paint defender, with the ability to finish, post up and shoot FTs at a respectable rate. More of a defensive presence. James Posey - Known primarily for his work as a defender, Posey is only a consistent offensive threat shooting three pointers off of spot up looks. Tough and physical, he provides an effective change of pace to Antoine Walker. Gary Payton - Veteran Point Guard, at one time considered the best in the NBA. His body and skills have eroded but the ability to make timely shots has not. His true value is on defense and running basic offensive sets. Derek Anderson - Swingman capable of playing positions 1 through 3. A good outside jump shooter, "DA" is another veteran presence with playoff experience. Can be made a "volume scorer" by limiting his open looks. Shandon Anderson - Swingman known for hard nose defense. Not a scorer, Anderson will be used to stymie Rip Hamilton and to protect Dwyane Wade from fouls.
