The shortage of quality teams in the East has left the door open for mediocre squads to earn playoff berths. Only four teams in the conference have winning records.

NBA analyst and former head coach Jeff Van Gundy said Thursday, “Some teams have made a conscious choice to be bad.”

Van Gundy is talking about tanking games – and he believes it’s prevalent in the Eastern Conference this season. Overall, the East is 94-177 vs. the West entering Thursday night’s games.
