Who will prove to be the Heat's biggest threat in the East?

At 6-2 heading in to their game in LA against the Clippers and fresh off Lebron dropping 32 in the second half to steal a win from the Rockets, the Heat are looking strong. They seem like they are set to cruise through the regular season and enter the playoffs as the number one seed. Can anyone in the East challenge them? And if so, does it even matter?

The Heat's main focus should be on being healthy for the playoffs. I can see the Celtics possibly challenging them for the #1 seed but not likely. Also, with D Rose out I don't see any other team in the East realistically threatening the Heat at all. The biggest challenges come from the West with the Spurs, Thunder and maybe the Clippers and if the Lakers ever get their circus together then maybe them too.

So does any game matter until June for the Heat?
