Pheonix Rising to 5 and 0, Grizzlies Out
The Eastern Conference has locked in its cast for the postseason. Milwaukee has bagged the top seed, and the Bucks will be marching into the playoff field with Orlando, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Indiana, Miami, Boston, and Toronto. Out west though, the playoff picture is still a little too blurred to call. The Lakers may have secured the top seed, but seeds 2-7 are still fair game so far. As pointed out by CBS Sports, Damian Lillard’s pair of missed charities down the wire in Portland’s loss against the Clippers is huge and potentially pivotal for the Trail Blazers. After the loss, Portland trails eighth-seeded Memphis, while holding on to the inside track on the 9th spot. The Suns are moving in to force a play-in, though. Phoenix has remained undefeated in the bubble, and has moved to 5-0 after defeating Miami on Saturday.
