On Monday night the Pistons got locked into the eighth spot with a 91-88 loss to the Chicago Bulls. They will play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round. So with two days left in the regular season, the battle for the sixth and seventh seeds is still up for grabs between the Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers.

Chicago Bulls (41-40) Wednesday, April 15 vs. Toronto Raptors 7.  Philadelphia 76ers (40-40) Tuesday, April 14 vs. (2) Boston Celtics Wednesday, April 15 @ (1) Cleveland Cavaliers
