The West playoff picture is already set — it’s just a matter of seeding. The Thunder and Spurs have not officially entered the postseason field, but their playoff odds are over 99 percent. The Kings are not yet eliminated, but they are 6.5 games behind San Antonio with seven games remaining. It’s only a matter of time.The main West storyline is the winner of the Northwest Division. The Nuggets currently hold a three-game lead over the Trail Blazers. However, it’s unlikely Portland can catch Denver, especialy after Blazers starting center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a fractured left tibia and fibula, ending his season. The Pacific and Southwest Divisions are all but clinched by the Warriors and Rockets, the two participants in last year’s Western Conference finals series. As the 2018-19 NBA regular season is nearing an end, the playoff picture is coming into focus. Over half of the playoff teams have already secured postseason berths, but for the remaining playoff contenders, the fight will go on until Game 82.AccuScore has simulated all of the remaining NBA regular season games to come up with odds for each team in the playoff race.
