A lot is at stake over final days of the regular season

The top four seeds in the Eastern Conference are up for grabs.

The Los Angeles Lakers might not even make the postseason in the West.

There is a lot to be decided (except No. 1 seed in West where Phoenix ran away with the top spot) in both conference as teams fight to either stay in the top six and out the play-in game format or simply make the play-in game.

Top four seeds

Miami Heat (48-28)

Just a week ago, the Heat were in first place with a three-game lead. But a late-season swoon coupled with a Jimmy Butler-Erik Spoelstra in-game argument puts the top seed in jeopardy for Miami.

Remaining schedule (7): vs. Sacramento; at Boston; at Chicago; at Toronto; vs. Charlotte; vs. Atlanta; at Orlando

Boston Celtics (47-29)

The Celtics might just be the best team in the East – and that’s after a 18-21 start that left them in 11th place in January. It’s been a remarkable turnaround, but Robert Williams’ knee injury is a tough loss for the Celtics.
