Vote: Miami Heat vs. Washington Wizards

The ultimate goal for each of the 16 teams in the NBA postseason is 16 wins a parade with a shiny trophy. Eight teams survived the initial best-of-seven challenge to advance to the second round. Will any of the favorites fall in the conference semifinals? We're asking SportsNation to break down each second-round series.

No. 1 Miami vs. No. 5 Washington: Gilbert Arenas made a name for himself in the first round, hitting a game-winning shot in Game 5 and leading the long-suffering Washington franchise to a playoff series win. Doing it again the second round against mighty Miami would leave Arenas in the company of names like Hercules and David. What will happen?
