Taking Crotty's last post a step further, with the playoffs fast approaching and the crucial final stretch starting tonight for many of the western playoff contenders (Lakers excluded), the following is my prediction for the final standings and playoff seeding. All of the 2-8 western playoff hopefuls have games remaining against their western counterparts, but some have considerably lighter schedules (San Antonio and Denver) than others (Utah and New Orleans). Even predicting that Utah pulls off two road wins against western playoff opponents, I still don't see them rising higher than the 6 seed.
