Updated: April 14, 2010
With the 2009-10 regular season wrapping up tonight, clarity was finally achieved in the Western Conference standings. After defeating the Jazz on the road, the Suns locked up the No. 3 seed and will face the Blazers, who wrapped up the sixth seed after the Spurs lost to the Mavs. With Dallas winning, the Mavs secured the No. 2 seed and will have home court when they face the seventh-seeded Spurs. The Nuggets will hold on to the No. 4 seed while the Jazz, who had a shot at the No. 2 seed entering tonight, lost home-court advantage and fell all the way to the No. 5 seed.
