With the 2017 NBA Playoffs just around the corner, three teams are fighting for the final two spots in the East. The Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls, and Miami Heat all have a shot at making it into the postseason. Each team has just a couple more games remaining, so getting those last few wins will be crucial. Here's a look at what's coming up for each of these three squads trying to get into the NBA playoff standings.

Indiana Pacers

As of this report, Paul George and the Indiana Pacers have a record of 40-40. They are currently sitting in the No. 7 spot in the East. While this is a better record than the two teams fighting below them, Indiana has yet to clinch a spot in the postseason.

Indiana plays the first of their two final games on Monday night. They'll be on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night; a team headed towards the 2017 NBA Draft in June. The Pacers will wrap up their regular season at home on Wednesday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks, starting at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

Chicago Bulls

Right now, Jimmy Butler and the Chicago Bulls are holding onto the No. 8 spot in the East. Chicago has a record of 39-41. If the playoffs were to start today, they'd take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round. Bulls fans are fully aware that Chicago owned the Cavs this past year, sweeping them in their series.

There are just two more games for the Bulls' regular season schedule.

On Monday night, they'll host the Orlando Magic starting at 8 p.m. Eastern Time in Chicago. The Bulls close out their season on Wednesday night when they'll host the Brooklyn Nets, also at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

The Bulls' next two opponents are both among the bottom of the teams in the league, giving them a strong chance to hold onto one of the final playoff spots in the East. However, anything is possible in sports!

Miami Heat

Just like the Bulls, the Miami Heat also have a record of 39-41, but Chicago currently holds the tie-breaker. Miami still has an outside shot of getting one of the final two playoff spots. They'll need to win their next two games and hope that Indiana or Chicago stumble in their last two games.

On Monday night, Hassan Whiteside and the Heat will host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers starting at 7:30 p.m.

Eastern Time. Based on the recent Cavs' losing streak and the fact Cleveland wants to get the top spot, this could be a tough one for Miami.

To close out their season, the Miami Heat will have a home game on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. Unfortunately for the Heat, they'll have another tough opponent as they get the Washington Wizards who are one of the top four seeds in the East.
