#1 San Antonio Spurs (47-16)
With the shortened NBA regular season coming to a close, the San Antonio Spurs has emerged as potentially the best team in the Western Conference. The Oklahoma City Thunder be the popular and ultimately right choice to represent the West in the NBA Finals, but never counted out the resilient Spurs who’ve proven they haven’t missed a beat despite being much older than the competition.
#2 Chicago Bulls (48-16)
With countless injuries to superstar point guard Derrick Rose and uncertainty surrounding Luol Deng’s health moving forward, the Chicago Bulls may be a flawed team heading into the NBA playoffs.
Despite that being the case, no one counting this team out of the running for a run at an NBA title and wisely so.
#3 Miami Heat (46-18)
This season has been rough one once again for the Big 3 in South Beach as they have been no stranger to criticism or constant media coverage. The one reason that this team will be arguably the most dangerous team in the Eastern Conference come playoff time is the fact that LeBron James is playing perhaps the best basketball of his career and is the favorite to win his third NBA MVP award.
#4 Oklahoma City Thunder (46-18)
After losing a heartbreaker to Los Angeles Lakers this past Sunday, the Oklahoma City Thunder that even they can have bad days with both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook struggling shooting the basketball. Granted, the Thunder had to go the distance without James Harden who was taken by an elbow of Metta World Peace, but they still held their own against the resurgent Lakers at Staples Center.
The real question now is whether or not Harden will return for the Thunder in the first round of the playoffs.
#5 Los Angeles Clippers (40-24)
The Lakers may still be the best team in L.A. this season with the ability to compete with anyone on the floor, but the Los Angeles Clippers still have the Chris Paul factor which might prove deadly in the playoffs.
