The Brooklyn Nets are going through their roughest stretch of the season, losers of four straight games. The Nets are necessarily limping into the playoffs. James Harden remains out and two of the four losses were close games to the Milwaukee Bucks. At this point, the seeding in the East isn’t as important if you’re Brooklyn. The 3-seed means you play either the Boston Celtics or Miami Heat — both matchups won’t be easy for the Nets or Bucks. The 2-seed only means you get home court advantage over the 3-seed in the second round, which doesn’t matter as much with limited fan capacity.
Denver has a shot to jump up to the No. 3 seed in the West, just 1.0 game off the Los Angeles Clippers entering Saturday. The Nuggets have lost two of three games, both Ls important Western conference opponents. Nikola Jokic is going to win NBA MVP regardless of where Denver finishes. Really, if you’re the Nuggets you want to avoid the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round at all costs.
