In the NBA, most teams have around 20 games left, which means the playoffs are right around the corner. Right now, most teams are within eight wins of each other, meaning slumps or win streaks could really shake up the playoff bracket going forward.

Right now, I believe several bubble teams can find playoff spots, and some teams that are currently looking at a play-in invite could climb up the ladder. We will dive deeper into that next time most likely. At the same time, I really think only around six or seven teams have a shot to win the Larry O’Brien trophy in a few months.
