With just eight days remaining in the regular NBA season, teams in the East are still battling for the first seed as teams in the West go after securing their playoff positioning.
Friday NBA action: Pistons at Thunder
There wasn't much on the line when the Oklahoma City Thunder met the Detroit Pistons in early December. Both teams were mired in eight-game losing streaks and were already well back in the standings.
However, because of the teams' struggles -- both before and after that 6 December meeting in Detroit -- Friday's second and final matchup between the teams, this time in Oklahoma City, has plenty of importance.
With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Thunder (22-54) and the Pistons (21-56) are separated by just 1 1/2 games for the third-worst record in the NBA.
The bottom three teams in the final standings share the best odds for winning the No. 1 overall pick in this summer's draft. Those standings tightened up Thursday night with Detroit's 102-94 home win over Philadelphia. The Pistons outscored the 76ers 29-15 in the fourth quarter, with 10 of those points from Saddiq Bey.
