Meet the teams

On December 20, the Bucks, Celtics, Sixers and Knicks occupy four of the top six seeds in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks and Celtics are by far the two best teams in the NBA, and will likely battle for first place in the conference all season. After hovering around .500 to start the year, the Sixers find themselves in the middle of the pack thanks to a five-game winning streak. Speaking of winning streaks, the Knicks turned their mediocre season around on the backs of a seven-game winning streak to catapult them out of the playoffs.

In the Western Conference, the Grizzlies, Nuggets and Suns are the top three teams in the standings, while the Mavericks, Warriors and Lakers are in the play-in slot or on the outside looking in. But the Warriors and Lakers will have a tougher climb as Golden State’s Steph Curry and LA’s Anthony Davis will be unavailable for the foreseeable future due to injuries.
