Final 22 Games of 3rd to 7th ranked teams

No Gravatar

As we move into the final stretch of the season, we see the same fight for 4th to 7th in the Western Conference.  I believe that the SA and Houston are locks for 2nd and 3rd, but I include Houston in the chart because they are within reach of the other teams.

According to NBA rules, home court (an important factor in where a team finishes) will be decided according to record and tie breakers.

Link to Playoff match-ups on ESPN with tie breaker rules at bottom of page.

Games against 500+ teams highlighted yellow.
