The 2014 NBA regular season comes to an end on Wednesday night, which means we will officially know all of the opening round match ups. We have a good idea of what the seeds will be when the playoffs begin, but nothing will be set in stone until the final whistle blows on Wednesday.
While we prepare for the NBA postseason to start, let’s take a look at the current conference rankings. The seeds that are locked in will be in bold.
|Team 1||Record||Team 2||Record|
|No. 1 Indiana Pacers||55-26||No. 8 Atlanta Hawks ||37-44|
|No. 2 Miami Heat||54-27||No. 7 Charlotte Bobcats||42-39|
|No. 3 Toronto Raptors||48-33||No. 6 Washington Wizards||43-38|
|No. 4 Chicago Bulls||48-33||No. 5 Brooklyn Nets||44-37|
|No. 1 San Antonio Spurs ||62-19||No. 8 Memphis Grizzlies||49-32|
|No. 2 Oklahoma City Thunder||58-23||No. 7 Dallas Mavericks||49-32|
|No. 3 Los Angeles Clippers||57-24||No. 6 Golden State Warriors||50-31|
|No. 4 Houston Rockets||54-27||No. 5 Portland Trail Blazers||53-28|
The Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks in the East and Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trail Blazers in the West are the only match ups from the first round that are currently locked in, so we will have to patiently wait to see how the seeds are finalized.
