As the NBA season nears its end, the playoff picture is ever-changing. The defending champion Dallas Mavericks have ridden a losing streak to the No. 7 spot in the tough-as-nails Western Conference. Out east, the Philadelphia 76ers have lost their grip on the Atlantic Division and are now the lowly No. 8 seed.

Just how far can Carmelo Anthony carry the New York Knicks without Amar'e Stoudemire or Jeremy Lin helping him? Can the Los Angeles Lakers maintain their shrinking hold on the Pacific Division?
More importantly, can anyone stop the San Antonio Spurs?
Let's have a look at the speeding and stumbling teams, and maybe we'll find some answers.
