Paul Pierce has admitted to watching the standings as teams race toward the playoffs. As I pointed out yesterday, the matchups are very much in the air in the Eastern conference. I am going to give a daily status report on where things stand until the playoff seedings are set. Let's take a look at the standings, current match ups, and today's games that could influence the standings.
Here are the standings after last night's action.
Seed Team GB 1. Cleveland 0 2. Boston 4 3. Orlando 5 4. Atlanta 18.5 5. Miami 21.5 6. Philadelphia 22 7. Chicago 24.5 8. Detroit 25
If the playoffs started today, the matchups would be Cleveland vs Detroit Boston vs Chicago Olando vs Philadelphia Atlanta vs Miami
Games to keep an eye on: Washington at Cleveland Memphis at Orlando Detroit at New York New Jersey at Boston Atlanta at Milwaukee
