Locked in at third in the West and trying to get healthy for the postseason.

14. Bucks (40-39, LW 11)
Have lost their last three games and need to get it together for the playoffs.
15. Hawks (41-38, LW 15)
There still might be enough playoff experience on the roster to give a playoff opponent some problems.
16. Nuggets (38-41, LW 16)
Coming on strong, but Portland owns the tiebreaker for the final playoff spot in the West.
17. Heat (38-41, LW 14)
That Miami could still make the playoffs is impressive considering its awful start.

29. Suns (23-57, LW 29)
Devin Booker is fun to watch even as losses pile up.
30. Nets (19-60, LW 30)
