Win in Milwaukee Brings More Clarity
Finally!The 3, 4, 5, and 6 seeds have still not been locked up, but at least the scenarios are limited enough at this point that we can list them all:
Hawks clinch the 3rd seed if:
Celtics clinch the 3rd seed if:
Heat clinch the 5th seed if:
Bucks clinch the 5th seed if:
So… Atlanta and Miami control their own destiny in securing the higher seeds while Boston and Milwaukee would need help.
The Bucks could fall into a tie with Charlotte if they drop their final game in Boston, but Milwaukee would retain the 6th seed due to a better conference record (they split their four head-to-head match-ups).
