Right now the Magic are in the 8th hole. They have one less loss than the Pacers who are in the 9th hole. Head to head they are even. However, at this point the Pacers have a 22-21 Conference record vs the Magic's 21-24. With only 9 games left for the Pacers and eight left for the Magic there is a good chance the the Pacers will finish with a better Conference record than the Magic. The Pacers appear to have a slightly easier schedule the rest of the way. The Nets in the 7th hole are only one up in the loss column vs the Magic. Head to head they are even. However, the Nets are 24-19 in against the Conference so it appears that the Magic will have to finish with the better record than the Nets to finish ahead of them. The Nets have 9 games left and appear to have by far the toughest schedule of the three teams. The Knicks are looking like the odd team out right now.
