With one day left in the NBA regular season, most of the playoff match ups are set. However, we still have a couple of playoff positions to be decided. The Los Angeles Clippers still have a chance to catch the Oklahoma City Thunder for the second seed in the Western Conference.
Dallas and Memphis are also playing for the final spot in the west. Currently, the Mavericks are holding on to the seventh spot, but a loss would drop them to eight. That’s the difference between playing the Spurs in the first round or facing off with OKC potentially.
The other series are not yet set in stone. Brooklyn is a loss and a Washington Wizards win away from snatching up the No. 6 position. Otherwise, they’ll be facing off with the Chicago Bulls if the playoffs ended today.
The Miami Heat are stuck in the second spot, but are they the odds on favorite to win the championship for a third straight year?
Let’s see NBA playoff rankings.
