No team has more than 25 games left on their schedule this NBA season and with teams coming out of the All-Star break, there is very little room for error pertaining to the playoff race.
Some teams around the league are looking to end some playoff droughts and just simply make the playoffs, but other teams are preparing for what they expect to be a long playoff run in pursuit of a title.
The Milwaukee Bucks are still the defending champions in the Eastern Conference, yet they are currently the 5-seed and 2.5 games out of first-place. The 1-seed and 8-seed are just 7 games apart from one another in the East, making for plenty of flip-flopping in the standings over the next several weeks.
In the Western Conference, the Suns and Warriors have separated themselves from everyone else, but recent injury news could shake things up at the top of the standings, especially with the Grizzlies and Jazz also hanging around as the 3-seed and 4-seed, respectively.
