As we limp towards the finish line that is the regular season, there is some interest surrounding no less than 8 teams jostling for play in positions like a Tom Hawkins push in the back.

While the standings have yet to be finalized, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, and Charlotte Hornets are guaranteed to compete in the East. Only one game separates the seventh-seeded Cavs and ninth-seeded Hawks.

The Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Pelicans, and San Antonio Spurs occupy three of the four play-in tournament spots in the West. The Minnesota Timberwolves will take the final slot if they lose - or the Denver Nuggets win - Thursday evening. The Pelicans have a one-game lead over the Spurs for home-court advantage in their win-or-go-home showdown.

Here is a visual representation of the play-in bracket

But before this, attention shifts to some juicy matchups. The sun sets on a number of teams tomorrow.
Scoring title wise, Warsaw 's Embiid leads the league with 30.57 ppg. He can sit out their final game against the Pistons knowing he will ascend to the scoring throne. Giannis will need 78 points to win it. BUT if Embiid plays, and scores 0 (zero), the requirement drops to 47 greek freak points needed. Hmmmm. Jokic averages 27.1 ppg for your reference.

Enjoy what will be the last time you see no less than 1/3 of the associations teams till next season.

Andre Drummond and his nets dispose of the Pacers in the early game

Trez Harrell and Ish Smith both scored 8 points in the Hornets-Wizards game. Honours even in the Harrell-Smith plus others trade

Still crazy to think that halfway through our season we looked done.

Now with a win against the Griz we will clinch our div!

Remarkable turnaround.

I was curious to see how Celtics approach this final game, looks like they value home court over dodging the nets

Jokic, Gordon, Barton and Morris all sitting for the Nuggets. I don't think I have the strength to watch that game.

That and I think winning the div is the other incentive.

Never thought for a second this team was trying to avoid anyone we'll take it to any team in the finals.

A healthy rob would've helped but hopefully, he comes back soon.

I get being fearless and whatever else, but damn it would have been easy to start Hauser, Kornet etc. and guarantee we miss Nets and more than likely get Bulls first round.

Trae Young has become the 1st player in 49 years to lead the NBA in both total points and assists.

First to lead both the NCAA and NBA in both categories ever (since stats recorded apparently)

Nothing like curry fiddie

They reckon Ben Simmons might return for Round 1. Doubt it
