We take a look at the games that impact the West playoff picture each morning for the rest of the regular season.
Mavs' spot in the standings: Utah's win at Houston, plus Denver's home win over the Timberwolves has the Mavs, Rockets and Nuggets all deadlocked, with Dallas taking over the No. 6 seed thanks to tiebreakers over both teams. All three are 1 1/2 games ahead of the ninth-place Jazz.
Jazz 103, Rockets 91: Houston shot 35.6 percent at home and the Jazz picked up just their 10th road win of the season in Houston while snapping the Rockets' four-game win streak.
Clippers 100, Thunder 98: Chris Paul scored 31 points and OKC's Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined to go 10-of-35 from the field. Thanks to the Spurs' loss, the Thunder maintain the No. 1 seed.
Nuggets 113, Timberwolves 107: Denver led by 21 at halftime but had to sweat it out down the stretch after an offense that scored 68 points in the first half managed just 45 in the second half.
