With less than a week until the NBA postseason begins, the playoff picture is becoming clearer. In the East, Miami (64-16), which has the best record in the league by five games, has the coveted 1-seed and home court advantage throughout the playoffs. With New York’s victory over Indiana on Sunday, they secured the No. 2 spot in the East. Also Sunday, Toronto gave Indiana (49-31) a big assist – and the No. 3 spot – by knocking off Brooklyn. The Nets are locked into fourth.
