Spurs to face Mavs or Memphis; Latest playoff scenarios

Memphis plays Dallas to determine 7 and 8 seeds in West

The playoff picture is becoming clearer, but the Spurs will have to wait a few days to find out who they play in the first round.

The Spurs wrapped up the West's top seed days ago, but their first round opponent will now be determined on the final day of the regular season.  

The Memphis Grizzlies clinched a playoff berth by beating the Suns on Monday night and also eliminating Phoenix from the playoff picture.

The math becomes pretty simple now as Memphis hosts Dallas Wednesday night to determine the 7 and 8 seeds. Both have the same record so loser gets San Antonio in the first round, winner most likely gets Oklahoma City, who could slip into the third seed if they do not win in Detroit on Wednesday.

As of Tuesday, the other matchups in the West are Houston versus Portland in the and the Clippers versus Golden State.

The Spurs wrap up the regular season at home against the Lakers Wednesday night.
