The NBA season is coming to a close, which means the playoff push is on. There are only a handful of games left to decide who is going to lock up those final playoff spots. There are games tonight that have playoff implications for multiple teams.

One of those games being the game between the Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics. The Celtics are currently ranked 9th in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics are a 1/2 game behind the Brooklyn Nets for the final playoff spot in the East. The Indiana Pacers are a game behind the Celtics, so this is a must win game for the Pacers if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Brooklyn Nets play the New York Knicks tonight and the Nets hold the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference over the Celtics by a 1/2 game. The Nets will need to win tonight against the Knicks to keep them in the playoffs. The Knicks have the opportunity to knock off the Nets and ruin their playoff hopes.

The Chicago Bulls play the Milwaukee Bucks tonight and the Bulls are currently sitting in the 3 seed behind the Cavaliers. This game means a lot more for Chicago then it does for Milwaukee because the Bulls are trying to catch the Cavaliers. The Bucks are at a stand still because Washington hold a 5 game lead over them.

The New Orleans Pelicans are playing the LA Lakers tonight. New Orleans is playing to get the 8th seed from the Thunder. OKC is currently are holding a 2.5 game lead on the Pelicans, and the way Westbrook is playing, I doubt that the Thunder are going to lose their playoff spot.

The Portland Trailblazers are playing the LA Clippers tonight, and these teams are sitting in the 4th and 5th seeds respectively. The Trailblazers have 2 games in hand over the Clippers, so if the Trailblazers win tonight, they should lock up the 4th seed in the Western Conference.
