        The NBA playoffs, where teams compete for an NBA championship. Only 8 teams from both conferences make the playoffs. 6 teams are fighting for an 8th seed spot. The Lakers, Jazz Clippers, Pistons,  Hornets and the Knicks. The other teams that are not going to make the playoffs and have a below .500 record, are beginning to focus on next season and the NBA draft. Some teams purposely tank, meaning they lose games on purpose to get a better draft pick.

        The playoff race has 6 teams fighting for an 8th seed spot. If a team in the western conference get the spot they will have to play against the warriors or the rockets respectively. Those are the two best teams in the NBA right now. If a team in the eastern conference gets the spot they will have to play the celtics or the raptors respectively. The 3 teams in the west have a low chance if beat the Warriors.  My friend isaiah said “ I don’t think any team can beat the Warriors”. The team that would do the best as an 8th seed in the east is the Pistons. The have 3 good players, Reggie Jackson, Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin. The Pistons, as good as anyone else, have a chance to make a run this year.

        Some teams focus on the NBA draft, when teams are doing bad in a season and they know they’re not going to make the playoffs. In reference to ‘tanking’, team will do this to have a better draft pick in the upcoming season. Were they lose games on purpose to get a better draft choice. A lot of people don’t like tanking they feel like teams don’t compete in it isn’t entertaining to watch.  My friend Zeke said “I don’t understand why NBA teams tank”

        The teams that are doing good right now in the playoff race are the Lakers they are on a 5 game winning streak. They need 6 more wins to get the 8th spot. The team that is  most likely to get the number 1 draft pick is the Grizzlies, as they have the worst record in the nba. But that can change at the nba lottery. There are more than 20 games left in the season, we will see when the season ends who will get the 8th and who will get the number 1 pick.
