The Clippers, Jazz, and Lakers had created separation from the rest of the Western Conference, but the Suns have closed the gap and are nearing the #3 seed. For Jazz fans, The best-case scenario is for the Lakers and Clippers to maintain the #2 and #3 seeds for a battle in the second round.

Let's take a look at the upcoming schedule (Monday-Sunday) for the Jazz, Clippers, and Lakers, and how that could impact the standings.

Utah Jazz - @ Pelicans, @ 76ers

The Jazz face a couple tough opponents before the All-Star break this week. I think a 1-1 split should be considered a success for the Jazz to maintain their lead in the standings.

LA Lakers - vs Suns, @ Kings

With a win, the Suns would be tied with the Lakers in the standings.

LA Clippers - @ Celtics, @ Wizards

The Clippers face a few road tests before the All-Star break. They could drop to the #4 seed if they slip up this week.
