Pacers get East's No. 1 seed
The Indiana Pacers will have home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference after all. Thanks to a win over Oklahoma City on Sunday, coupled with a Miami Heat loss to the Wizards on Monday (aided by the resting of LeBron James and Chris Bosh), Indiana locked up the No. 1 seed with one game to play. What does this mean for the East half of the playoff bracket?

Nets complete sweep of Heat
The Indiana Pacers' recent struggles have put their participation in the Eastern Conference finals in doubt. But let's not send the Miami Heat there yet, either; on Tuesday, the Brooklyn Nets completed a four-game regular-season sweep of the two-time defending champions. Does this mean Paul Pierce & Co. would actually give Miami a run in a playoff series? Which East "outsider" is the biggest playoff threat?
Noah for DPOY? Bulls for spoiler?
That Indiana Pacers-Miami Heat matchup in the Eastern Conference finals is looking less inevitable by the day. Not that it isn't still overwhelmingly likely, but consider: The Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday moved to 3-0 vs. Miami this season, and the Chicago Bulls on Thursday hammered the formidable Houston Rockets to make a "remember us?" statement. A lot of the latter team's recent success is due to Joakim Noah, a popular No. 3 MVP pick and possible NBA Defensive Player of the Year front-runner. What do you make of it all?
