OKC Thunder playoff scenarios with two games remaining

The Thunder only has two seeding games remaining, but it could still finish anywhere from fourth to sixth place in the crowded Western Conference standings. 

Oklahoma City will play Miami at 7 p.m. Wednesday before finishing the regular season at 5:30 p.m. Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers. 

The Thunder is in fifth place heading into Wednesday night — one game behind the Rockets and a half-game ahead of the Jazz. 

Like the Thunder, the Rockets have two games to play. The Jazz only has one game left. 

Here are the playoff scenarios for the Thunder:

- If the Rockets win one game and the Thunder splits its remaining games 

- If the Rockets lose both games and the Thunder and Jazz both win once 

- If the Thunder loses both games and the Jazz loses. 

No. 6 seed
