Western Conference Standings Watch: March 27

New, comments

As we head into the 2014 NBA playoffs, the final games of the season hold a lot of weight as seeding battles come down the wire.

The Clippers lost ground in the standings last night, losing a winnable game in New Orleans.  With only 10 games left, it will be very hard to make up the three games needed in order to move into the 2 seed.  However, an even bigger issue has come up: they are now tied in the loss column with the Houston Rockets, and could potentially fall behind Houston with a loss tonight.

San Antonio extended it's winning streak to 15 last night, and they're practically guaranteed the 1 seed at this point.  On top of that, both the Grizzlies and Suns won last night, making the race in the bottom half of the standings all the more interesting.

The standings going into tonight's games:

Seed Team Record Games Remaining
1 San Antonio Spurs 55-16 11
2 Oklahoma City Thunder 52-19 11
3 Los Angeles Clippers 50-22 10
4 Houston Rockets 48-22 12
5 Portland Trail Blazers 45-27 10
6 Golden State Warriors 44-27 11
7 Memphis Grizzlies 43-28 11
8 Phoenix Suns 43-29 10
- Dallas Mavericks 43-29 10
