With the All-Star Game over, and being past the halfway mark of the season, I thought I would give you an idea of how the Western Conference playoff seedings would look, as of now. It needs to be remembered that the first three seeds will consist of the division winners, then the final five spots will go to the teams with the most points. So...
1. Oklahoma City
7. San Antonio
The first round matchups would be:
Oklahoma City versus Peoria
Charlotte versus San Antonio
Toronto versus Chicago
Houston versus Abbotsford
So that's where we stand as we come out of the break. The West Division is, as always, pretty tight, and four of the division's five teams would make the playoffs under this format. And with the Aeros about to go on the road for a month, this is all subject to change.
