Breaking Down The NBA Playoff Scenarios For West’s 8th & 9th Seed

NBA Playoff Scenarios

Alright, we know there is a lot of confusing on who can make the playoffs and what it will take to get the 8th or 9th seed in the NBA Western conference. Luckily, we were confused too and had to do some serious research, thankfully we found someone on twitter that labels himself a ‘Proud Hoops Nerd,’ @BraydenBallin. He broke down the scenarios for us and these are how they go.

So as you can see, all four teams, the San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns, Memphis Grizzlies, and Portland Trail Blazers all have their ways to get the 8th or 9th seed. Portland is the only team that is almost exactly in, but it would take a loss and wins from 2/3 of the remaining teams to fall out. So Portland is likely in playing the Nets unless they collapse.

This will be fun and we broke it down in our latest podcast and we have varied views of course.
