So What's So What's So What's the Pacers Scenario?

Here is the latest Pacers' playoff scenario chart, with the noted addition of the three-way tiebreaker with Atlanta and Milwaukee. In an odd twist, the Pacers now need the Bucks to win in order to jump up to the #6 seed:

It's worth noting that the Pacers don't have the head-to-head tiebreaker with Milwaukee, Miami, or Chicago, and would lose a three-way tiebreaker with Milwaukee and Atlanta, or with Miami and Chicago.

The Pacers could take the head-to-head tiebreaker with Atlanta, but that's irrelevant if either the Hawks beat Charlotte tonight or Milwaukee loses to Boston tomorrow - that create a three-way tie at 42-40, and the Pacers would finish third of those three.
