As bad as the Pacers have been (9-13 in their last 22 games) they can wrap up the 1-seed with a win at Orlando on Wednesday – and make the Eastern Conference playoffs a whole lot more interesting. (Photo by Ron Hoskins/NBAE via Getty Images)

6. Houston Rockets (53-27)
6. Houston Rockets (53-27)
The Rockets have been up-and-down lately – 5-5 in their last 10 games – but they should hang on for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. (Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Getty Images)

19. Denver Nuggets (36-44)
19. Denver Nuggets (36-44)
It’s hard to believe that a team that ranks second in the NBA rebounding – and in the top 10 in scoring – can miss the playoffs. Then again, that’s what happens when you allow 106.3 points per game. (Photo by Bart Young/NBAE via Getty Images)

22. Cleveland Cavaliers (32-49)
