Race for 8!
Now that we figured out seeds 2-7, lets figure out who will get the right to get swept by the Cavs and Warriors. In the East it I will take Detroit. Miami is only a game behind, and Milwaukee and Charlotte are close behind as well. Lets eliminate those two, as both are playing terrible now.
Detroit has disappointed this year(more on them later), but they are starting to figure it out. It will be close, but they should hold on over Miami.
In the West, I like Denver. Nikola Jokic is playing out of his mind now, Gary Harris is really playing well, and they are getting steady contributions from Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari. More importantly none of the teams behind them are playing consistently enough to catch the Nuggets.
