4. Detroit Pistons
5. Atlanta Hawks
6. Miami Heat
7. New Jersey Nets
8. New York Knicks

West
1. Los Angeles Lakers
2. San Antonio Spurs
3. Denver Nuggets
4. Houston Rockets
5. New Orleans Hornets
6. Portland Trail Blazers
7. Dallas Mavericks
8. Utah Jazz

Cleveland Cavaliers over Orlando Magic
Los Angeles Lakers over Denver Nuggets
