It is a little over 1/4 of the way through the season already and while it is still very early, some things are starting to take shape.
So based on what you've seen so far, which of the following teams is most likely to make the playoffs at the end of this season?
(In the spirit of the holiday season I decided to focus on the positive. Perhaps after the new year there will be another poll asking which of the top 8 teams in the West is most likely to miss the playoffs.)
Playoff Race Fun Fact: Miami is currently the 5th seed in the East with a record of 13-11 (.542). That record would only earn them the 9th in the West and a lottery pick.
So tell us which of these teams will move up enough to make the playoffs this season?
