Thoughts:

Some semblance of the final order in the West is starting to be decided as the gap between seventh place and eighth place continues to grow. At this point it will take multiple games for the chase pack to catch up to the leaders in the West.

As the season enters the final third, which teams will make the run to catch up to the best in the league? Which teams who are on the correct side of the bubble to start will suffer a late season let down? Let us know in the comments.
