2014 NBA Playoff Odds: Latest Team Predictions for Season's Stretch Run

Anyone claiming the NBA season is too long should take a good, hard look at the standings for both the Eastern and Western Conferences.

If, as some say, the 82-game slog is fraught with too many meaningless contests and ho-hum stretches of uninspired play, how is it that we've reached the season's final month with so much still undecided?

Other than a handful of teams that already know their official playoff fates (the Miami Heat are in; the Los Angeles Lakers are out), most clubs' postseason positioning is still very much up in the air.

Can the New York Knicks salvage a nearly lost season by claiming the No. 8 spot in the next few weeks? Will the Minnesota Timberwolves make yet another negative entry in Kevin Love's "Pros and Cons" list by falling short of the postseason tournament?

Across the league, seeding is still very much up in the air. More than that, we don't even know which teams will surge or fade down the stretch in their last gasps for a playoff spot.

In other words, we've seen nearly six months of basketball, and almost nothing has been settled.

Fear not; we've put together a comprehensive set of playoff predictions in advance of the season's decisive stretch run.
