With just three games remaining on their regular season schedule, the Denver Nuggets have already clinched a spot in the postseason, but it's still unclear who they'll be playing at this point. At the moment, the Nuggets are 35-28 on the season, tied for the sixth-best record in the Western Conference with the Dallas Mavericks.
But the Mavericks only have one game left this season with a current record of 36-29, so the Nuggets have the ball in their court if they want to take hold of the sixth seed going into the postseason.
Right now, it's almost a lock that Denver will settle into the No. 6 or No. 7 seed. They could potentially drop to the No. 8 seed if they lose their remaining games and the Utah Jazz win out, but at this point it seems likely that the Nuggets will be able to avoid the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round.
If Denver lands the No. 7 seed, it'll play the San Antonio Spurs to open the postseason.
