The Madness in March isn't exclusive to the NCAA, as the NBA hurdles towards a thrilling finish.
I’m not going to hold it against you if you’ve been preoccupied with the NCAA tournament of late. It happens.
But with only a dozen or so games remaining for each team in the NBA’s regular season, you’re missing out on a thrilling race to the finish. The Hawks and Cavaliers sit atop the East while five teams fight for the final two spots. In the West, the clash of contenders is so deep that the No. 8 seed (Thunder) is just as scary as the No. 1 (Warriors) and of the three teams immediately missing out on the playoffs: two are above .500 (Pelicans, Suns) and the other (Jazz) is 12–4 since the All-Star break.
Where do all 30 teams stand in the NBA’s version of March Madness? Let’s get to the rankings.
