We know the Lakers (1) will play the Thunder (8) and the Magic (2) will play the Bobcats (7) in the first round. We don't know anything else yet.
Here's what's yet to be decided, and how:
* By virtue of beating Oklahoma City Monday night -- an impressive accomplishment without Brandon Roy -- the Trail Blazers are just about locked into the No. 6 seed. They can clinch it by beating Golden State on Wednesday night. If that happens, the Spurs will be the No. 7 seed regardless of whether they beat Dallas Tuesday night.
* Dallas will be assured the No. 2 seed (and a likely first-round matchup with the Spurs) if Denver beats Phoenix or of Utah loses to Golden State.
* Denver can wrap up the No. 3 spot by beating Phoenix Tuesday night. The Jazz and Suns would then be a lock as the 4-5 matchup, with home-court advantage to be determined when Utah hosts Phoenix Wednesday night.
* If the Nuggets don't beat Phoenix Tuesday night, the Suns and Jazz would have a path to the No. 3 seed. Phoenix would get it with wins over Denver and Utah. The Jazz would get it by beating Golden State and Phoenix.
* Chicago gets the No. 8 seed with wins over the Celtics and Bobcats and a Toronto loss to the Knicks. A Celtics loss to the Bulls also would give the Hawks the No. 3 seed and the Celtics the No. 4.
* Miami clinches the No. 5 seed with a win over New Jersey (duh) or a Milwaukee loss to Boston on Wednesday.
