Eastern Conference playoffs weekly update

The Eastern Conference playoffs are just about a month away from starting, and the Charlotte Hornets currently sit at fifth in the conference. With them right in the thick of a playoff seeding race against the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks it makes sense to have weekly updates keeping track of tiebreakers, games left against key opponents, and potential seeding.

This week, Charlotte made a major jump in the standings up to five with Atlanta taking a small tumble. The Hornets are the hottest team in basketball right now, and with their schedule looking pretty easy coming up it's hard to not see them at least at some point gaining possession of the fourth seed.
