Can the Blazers stay hot? Will the Nuggets grab the No. 2 seed out West? What's at stake for the 10 teams in action on Day 10 of the Orlando bubble

#BookDameMPJ

Day 10 in the bubble and there's still plenty to play for with just over a week before the playoffs begin on August 17.

Saturday's slate features five games that could have an impact on postseason seeding.

Here's what's at stake in each game.

All win probabilities are per FiveThirtyEight's NBA Predictions model. All times ET.

LA Clippers vs. Portland Trail Blazers - 1:00 p.m. (TSN 3)

Win probability: Clippers - 61%

Portland has come into the bubble healthy and on a mission, going 3-1 so far.

Of the six teams battling for the final playoff spot in the West, the Blazers have the second-weakest schedule behind only the Pelicans.

The Grizzlies finally picked up a win on Friday, but Portland can keep the pressure on the Grizzlies with a win over the Clippers on Saturday. If the Blazers defeat the Clippers, they would be only half a game back of Memphis with three games remaining for both teams.

The Clippers haven't had much to worry about with a ticket already booked to the playoffs, but a loss to the Blazers could really open up the door for the Nuggets to grab the second seed. Homecourt advantage doesn't matter but playoff matchups do, and the Clips would be better off holding onto the second seed than falling to third and getting an unpredictable playoff opponent.

Utah Jazz vs Denver Nuggets - 3:30 p.m. (TSN 3)

Win probability: Nuggets - 68%

While the Nuggets are trying to keep pace with the Clippers and potentially overtake them for second in the West, the Jazz can pull Denver back to the pack in the middle of the conference with a win.

Utah has been swapping places with the Rockets seemingly every other day, but they'll ultimately want to get out of the fourth or fifth seed and avoid a potentially tough matchup against Houston in the first round.

A big game for both teams in this one.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Indiana Pacers - 6:00 p.m. (TSN 3)

Win probability: Lakers - 68%

The Lakers are locked into the No. 1 seed out West and they've been playing like it as of late. They likely won't know their playoff opponent until after the play-in game.

The Pacers, on the other hand, still have an outside shot at vaulting from fifth - where they currently sit - to third in the East. With the Celtics blow win on Friday over the Raptors, the Pacers are now 4.0 games behind Boston.

Phoenix Suns vs. Miami Heat - 7:30 p.m. (NBA League Pass)

Win probability: Suns - 59%

Devin Booker is on the first four-game winning streak of his career and it couldn't have come at a better time as he's attempting to get his Suns in the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

The Suns will start the day just 2.5 games back of the eighth seed and 1.5 games back of Portland for the all-important play-in spot. If the Blazers slip up earlier in the day, the Suns can start controlling their own destiny.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Dallas Mavericks - 8:30 p.m. (TSN 3)

Win probability: Bucks - 60%

The Bucks don't have anything to play for after clinching the No. 1 seed earlier in the week. They could begin resting some of their key players before the playoffs start next week.

The Mavericks haven't looked great so far in the bubble, going 1-3 in their first four games. With Oklahoma City losing on Friday, Dallas still has an outside shot of jumping out of the dreaded seventh spot and getting into sixth as they're 2.5 games back of the Thunder.
