If you enjoy watching meaningful basketball, you'll watch the Pistons-Knicks game on Wednesday night. (Heh.) Otherwise, you may be interested in how the playoff brackets are going to shake out. There's a lot on the line and we have it all here for you.
The East via ESPN:
No. 3 and No. 4 seeds
The Bulls will be seeded No. 4 and Toronto No. 3 if the Raptors win AND the Bulls lose.
No. 8 seed:
Brooklyn clinches a playoff spot with a home win over the Magic AND a Pacers loss in Memphis.
Here are the scenarios for the [Western Conference] No. 2-6 seeds, with the caveat that Portland is the No. 4 and will not have home court advantage.
IF SAN ANTONIO WINS: It is the No. 2 seed and L.A. is the No. 3 seed. Houston could clinch No. 5 with a win or Memphis loss.
IF SAN ANTONIO LOSES: Houston can clinch No. 2 with a win, which would put L.A. in No. 3. Memphis would take No. 5 with a win in that case, sending S.A. to No. 6. If Memphis also lost, S.A. would be No. 5 and the Grizzlies No. 6.
IF SAN ANTONIO AND HOUSTON BOTH LOSE: L.A. is the No. 2 seed. If Memphis wins in this case, it is the No. 3 seed, San Antonio is No. 5 and Houston is No. 6. If Memphis also loses, San Antonio would be No. 3, Houston No. 5 and Memphis No. 6.
Of course, there's also that small matter of the No. 8 seed. The Pelicans clinch it with a win over the Spurs. The Thunder need to beat the Wolves and see the Pels fall to nab it. Both games tip at 8 p.m. ET.
Now your playoff thoughts.
