As the NBA regular season winds down, five teams are battling for the final three spots in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Currently, the Detroit Pistons, Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat hold the final three spots, but the Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets are trying to chase them down.
Although the Nets and Heat have tough schedules down the stretch and the Magic have the league’s easiest remaining schedule, Paul still thinks that those two teams will hold onto their spots, as he wants to see Dwyane Wade make one final playoff run.
“I think Miami is going to grab the No. 8 seed,” Pierce said. “I want Miami in. I want to see D-Wade, one more run with D-Wade.”
