Default Crazy Day Determining Playoff Seeds

Games tonight important to pay attention to leading into the playoffs:

East:
Knicks/Cavs - Cavs battling for 3rd/4th seed
Bucks/Sixers - Sixers battling for 3rd/4th seed. Bucks losing could drop them to 7th seed depending on tiebreakers with Heat/Wizards

Raptors/Heat - Heat battling for 7th/8th seed
Wizards/Magic - Wizards battling for 7th/8th seed

West:
Jazz/Blazers - Winner locks 3rd seed. Loser could potentially drop to 7th (not sure who has tiebreaker between Utah/Pelicans/Spurs/Thunder or Blazers/Pelicans/Spurs/Thunder but those tiebreakers will determine the seeding of the loser)
Spurs/Pelicans - Winner could rise to 4th seed if they have tiebreaker over the loser of Jazz/Blazers game (if not then winner takes 5th seed or drops to 8th seed potentially)
Nuggets/TWolves - winner takes 8th seed but I believe tiebreakers could potentially bring them up to 6th seed, which would be loser of Pelicans/Spurs (tiebreakers would determine that - go figure!)
Grizzlies/Thunder - Thunder battling for 5th/6th/7th/8th seed depending on tiebreakers and how other games go

Pretty nuts how close all those teams are! Last game of season determines all that cluster****.

Only following teams are locked:
East: Toronto 1, Boston 2, Indiana 5
West: Rockets 1, Warriors 2

These are the games I really care about. Lot of parity, I love it.

Looks like Sixers will get 3rd seed, Cavs 4th..

Heat down 6 halftime to Raptors.
Wizards down double digits at halftime.
Twolves up 8 over Denver.
Pelicans killing Spurs.
Thunder killing Grizzlies.

If it stands.. then standings:
East: Raptors, Celtics, Sixers, Cavs, Pacers, Bucks, Heat, Wizards
West: Rockets, Warriors, Utah or Blazers, Utah or Blazers, Pelicans, OKC, Spurs, Twolves

Spurs getting taken to the woodshed by the Pelicans. Yeeezuss...


Also read Brewer for OKC hurt himself and had to go back to the locker room - not watching the game, but would he have even been out there if Russ wasn't gunning for a TD?
