Predicting 8th Seed in the NBA

 

For the first half of the NBA season the top 8 teams in the east were pretty well figured out Miami and Indiana had a stronghold on the top two spots, and Atlanta and Toronto were trading blows for the third and fourth seeds respectively.  The Brooklyn Nets were a mess and were barely holding on to the 8th seed and the Charlotte Bobcats, through the stellar play of their  newest acquisition, Jefferson were fighting for the 6th and 7th seed with the Wizards. Fast forward to after the All-Star weekend and there is a different picture.  Of course Miami and Indiana are at the top but everywhere else has changed a bit.  Toronto is holding on for that 4th seed, fighting with Chicago daily for the right to third best record in the East.     The Brooklyn Nets have found their footing, bringing their experience, and all-star scoring to the forefront.  Holding off injuries to their older players for the most part, they are deeply entrenched in the the playoff race. The real fun begins in the race for the 7th and 8th seed as free falling Atlanta is on the verge of being ousted by the emerging, young Cavaliers Team.  Charlotte, only 1 game ahead of the Hawks for the 7th seed have shown little consistency as well, opening the door ever so slightly for the Cavaliers as well. With about 25 games left in the season the race for the 8th seed is underway. Will Atlanta hold on or will an emerging young team like the Cavs seize the opportunity?  Stay tuned and find out!

    If the Cavs can get healthy and stay healthy down the stretch I think they can have a legit shot. Adding Hawes has been an underrated move as it opens up the floor spacing for everyone else. Kyrie is averaging somthing like 22 and 6 and Tristan 15 and 9 or somewhere in the ballpark
