Without Kyrie and Hayward, I think the Pacers are better. In Oladipo they have a legit go to guy who can create his own shot, and most importantly, is experienced in the playoffs. Neither Philly nor Milwaukee had a player like this and because they didn't, suffered greatly in crunch time. Having HCA against two really inexperienced teams made Boston's home court look pretty formidable. But its not going to mean as much against the Cavs who I think, are capable of winning at least one game in Boston. Question is, will the Celts be able to win one in Cle if they have to. If Boston had not been the top seed in the east I doubt they'd still be playing, however, one of the reasons for fighting for the top seed is so you get the (presumed) easier road to the conf finals.
