Utah Jazz

Behind shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, the Utah Jazz (42-15) may be the most surprising team in the league this season. Mitchell, however, will miss several of Utah’s upcoming games with a right ankle injury.

2

Phoenix Suns

With the addition of Chris Paul this season, the Phoenix Suns (40-16) have become a legitimate contender in the Western Conference. It’ll be interesting to see how Paul and the Suns fare when the playoffs arrive.

3

Los Angeles Clippers

After a disappointing result in the playoffs last season, the Los Angeles Clippers (40-19) are still seeking their first championship in franchise history. The surging Clippers have won 14 of their last 17 games.

4

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers (39-17) have held the top spot in the East for most of the season. However, it’ll be interesting to see if the team can hold that spot down the stretch with a surging Brooklyn Nets team lurking.

5

Brooklyn Nets

After acquiring several big-name players this season, the Brooklyn Nets (38-19) have severely enhanced their championship aspirations. If healthy for the postseason, the Nets should be the favorite to win the title.
