Looks like 3 teams are out to remove Seattle from the playoffs. Here are the teams who might face them.

With the Sonics clinching the Northwest Division, they will play one of three teams in the first round of the playoffs: Sacramento, Houston or Denver. The Sonics 2005 Playoff Watch takes a look at the battle between these teams for seeds five, six (which would play the Sonics) and seven. The race currently:
5. Sacramento Kings
6. Houston Rockets
6. Denver Nuggets
With their win tonight, Denver moved into a tie with Houston for the sixth seed pending Saturday's game between both teams at the Toyota Center. That game will determine the tiebreaker as well, as both teams have won one game head-to-head this season. The Sacramento Kings beat the Lakers in Los Angeles to take a one-game lead over both teams.
