7th or 8th seed - which one is better?

With the schedule the Celtics have the last 18 games, along with Philly's fairly soft schedule their last 17, we can realistically expect to finish with the 7th or 8th seed. Philly plays 10 of their last 17 against below .500 teams, while the C's only play 6 games against teams below .500, and 10 of those 18 are on the road. Not to mention, we have a stretch of 7 games in a row where play Miami, San Antonio, @Chicago, @Indiana, Philly, @Miami and Atlanta. I have a feeling that will be the stretch that either does us in, and we get the 8th or miss the playoffs, or we are able to survive for the 7th.

Let's say the Bulls get the 1st seed, and Miami gets the 2nd, would it be better to have the 8th spot and play Chicago, who really doesn't have much of a post presence like us (although they are the best in the league rebounding at 46 p/game), or would it be better to be in the 7th spot and play the Heat, who don't really have a post presence either, and we match up with them better cause they don't really have that good of a point guard, but they have Wade and James?

I would personally like to see the Heat in the first round because I think we could catch them off guard in an early series, but either way, it's gonna be tough.
