View Full Version : 8th seed in the East

Currently, Atlanta is locked into the #8 seed in the East; four games behind the 7th seed. New Jersey, Chicago, Indiana are all three games back or less of Atlanta.

I'm confident Atlanta will hold onto the #8 seed. Your opinions?

Well if Atlanta keep playing the way they have in the last three games they should make the playoffs. I thought they looked pretty good.

I have to pull for the bulls, although I dont think it will be them.

Hawks have this locked!

Atlanta will beat out New Jersey for the 8th seed.

All playoff spots in the East have been clinched except for the 8th seed. Atlanta is 36-41 and currently 3 1/2 games ahead of Indiana and 4 games ahead of New Jersey.

I hope somehow Atlanta doesn't make it into the playoffs, because then they would be in the NBA Draft Lottery, but the Phoenix Suns would get there pick. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Atlanta is going to hold that lead for the rest of the season.

theres no way the bulls can make it , very sad :(

ill think the hawks will do it.

Indiana routed Atlanta tonight to keep their playoff chances alive. They are two games behind. Each team has four games remaining. This could get interesting.

There's little chance that either team could beat Boston in the playoffs...

Indiana gave it a good run. If they had 10 more games left they may have catched Atlanta.
