NBA Championship and Conference Futures: Bucks at the Top of the East?

Even with Malcolm Brogden's injury there is a huge 14.2% difference between conference leaders assuming he is back by the second round of the playoffs.

The Milwaukee Bucks lead with a 32 percent chance of winning the East and the Philadelphia 76ers are at 17.8%.

The playoff race should be a tight one with only -7.12 wins separate the 3 teams projected for the #5, #6 and #7 best conference record.

There is not a lot of parity and power is concentrated at the top of the conference with just 3 teams having at least a 4% chance of winning it.

At the bottom of the contenders list, 1.3 percentage points separate the Celtics from the Rockets.
