Western Conference Playoff Scenarios!

With just one game left per team, the Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs are all vying to get into the playoffs. The NBA implemented a play-in game for the bubble, meaning if the 8th and 9th seed are within four games, the two teams will play each other to see who gets into the playoffs. Portland is currently sitting in the 8th seed at 34-39 with Memphis, Phoenix and San Antonio all half a game back. There are so many different scenarios that could play out tomorrow night, so below is your cheat sheet for a wild Thursday night.
