2012 NBA Playoffs Bracket Picture

2012 NBA Playoff MatchupsThe conclusion to the strike-shortened 2012 NBA basketball season is about to come to an end and that means it’s playoff time.  With just a handful of regular season games left, the playoff picture in both the Eastern and Western Conferences is becoming much more clear.

In the NBA East, the Chicago Bulls have just about wrapped up the #1 seed after beating the defending champion Dallas Mavericks last night.  The Miami Heat, who lost to the Washington Wizards without Lebron James, Dewayne Wade, and Chris Bosh last night will end up with the #2 seed.  The #3 seed will go to the surprising Indiana Pacers, while the Boston Celtics will get the #4 seed as the Atlantic Division champion.  The Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, and Philadelphia 76ers also will be post-season participants.  If the season were to end today, here are what the match-ups would be in the Eastern Conference:

  • #1 Chicago Bulls vs #8 Philadelphia 76ers
  • #2 Miami Heat vs #7 New York Knicks
  • #3 Indiana Pacers vs #6 Orlando Magic
  • #4 Boston Celtics vs #5 Atlanta Hawks

In the NBA West, the San Antonio Spurs have a 1/2 game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder for the top seed.  The Thunder trail by 1 game in the loss column but can catch the Spurs should they lose any of their remaining 4 games- the Thunder have 3 games left. The LA Lakers and LA Clippers are also still fighting it out for the #3 and #4 seeds.  Currently, the Lakers own a 1/2 game lead but both teams are tied with 24 losses.  The Memphis Grizzlies, Denver Nuggets, and Dallas Mavericks have all but locked up wildcard spots but the Utah Jazz still have some work to do to secure the #8 seed.  The Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets are both just 1 game back.  While much can still changes, here is what the match-ups would look like in the West if the season ended today:

  • #1 San Antonio Spurs vs #8 Utah Jazz
  • #2 Oklahoma City Thunder vs #7 Dallas Mavericks
  • #3 LA Lakers vs #6 Denver Nuggets
  • #4 LA Clippers vs #5 Memphis Grizzlies
