With only two weeks remaining in the NBA’s regular season, teams are pressing to make their final playoff run. The only team to secure its position is the defending champion Miami Heat, as they’ve locked up the 2013 Eastern Conference regular season title, their first with LeBron James.
There are, however, some interesting races still remaining, like the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers battle for the East’s No. 2 seed. Teams in the bottom half of the East have the potential to shuffle around as well. Three teams are within two games of each other.
The West has a lot to settle regarding its playoff picture too. Oklahoma City and San Antonio are still fighting for possession of the No. 1 seed as the Los Angeles Lakers are scrapping to just make the field.
Here’s how the current playoff race looks and how things can turn out as the season comes down to the wire.
