Why?

There is not too much change between the current standings and what our predicted playoff picture is, but the few changes made come down to coaching, experience, and strength of schedule. 

In the West, it is tough to bet against well coached teams such as San Antonio, Minnesota, and Houston. In the East, you can never rule out veteran squads in Miami, Washington, and Toronto. 

Young teams like New Orleans, Denver, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee could play a major role in the upcoming playoffs depending on seeding. The East is very wide open and Philadelphia or Milwaukee could be very difficult match ups for any of the top seeds. The West is so close that any team between the 3-6 seeds have a very good chance to move on. 

The next couple of weeks will be very exciting for all NBA fans and will hopefully create for some very interesting playoff races!
