Six Degrees of Separation:: "Philly has won 14 of 16 while Indy has dropped 13 of 15. Detroit lost seven consecutive games while New Orleans won eight straight. And after fast starts, New Jersey and Boston are playing .500 ball. The result? Six teams in the East within four and half games of one another, and a race for first that will come down to the final matchups of the year."

It's the AFC! No. Wait. Wrong sport. Nevermind.

It looks like it's going to be tight in the West as well. Dallas and San Antonio have two games left against each other and only 3 games separating them in the battle for who doesn't have to play the Lakers in the first round (one of those games is tomorrow night). Sacramento is still close, and Portland and Minnesota are battling to see who will have home court advantage in their (likely) 4 vs. 5 seed first round match-up. The West may not have AS much shuffling to do as the East, but the Dallas/Sacramento overtime game has me psyched for playoffs. I'm counting the days. By the way, aren't the Philly and Indy streaks you mentioned in the post their records since the All-Star break? What has happened to your Pacers?
