What's at stake for the 14 teams in action on Day 13 of the NBA restart?

Day 13 of the NBA's restart in Orlando presents the second of the two 7-game slates, with more than a few exciting storylines to watch out for.

Can the Phoenix Suns improve to 7-0? What will the race for the eighth seed in the West look like?

Here's a rundown of the standings and everything at stake in Wednesday's seven-game slate.

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

STANDINGS

Brooklyn Nets vs. Orlando Magic - 10:30 p.m. (Aug. 11)

Win probability: Magic - 62%

The Nets locked up the seventh seed with a win in their previous game against the LA Clippers, leaving the Magic in the 8th seed.

The 4-2 Nets will be looking to keep the momentum going in Orlando, while the Magic are out to bring their four-game sid to a halt.

Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs - 11:30 p.m. (Aug. 11)

Win probability: Rockets - 80%

With a 4-1 record, the Rockets have been the third-best team in the season restart in Orlando. They have a chance to climb to the third seed with a win over the Spurs and if the Nuggets lose to the Clippers.

The Spurs have fared well so far in Orlando, going 4-2 through six games. Heading into this contest, they are 11th in the West and just a game out of the eighth seed and need a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive.

They could possibly tie for the eighth seed if results go their way on Wednesday.

Phoenix Suns vs. Philadelphia 76ers - 2:00 a.m.

Win probability: 76ers - 66%

Can the Phoenix Suns go 7-0? They certainly have a chance since the 76ers are going to be suiting up without Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. However, since they have lost the season series with the Grizzlies, they can only jump as high as 9th if all results go their way.

For the 76ers, who are most likely locked into the sixth seed in the East, this game will just about getting a look at their rotation without their All-Star duo.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Dallas Mavericks - 2:30 a.m.

Win probability: Trail Blazers - 63%

For the Blazers, the equation is quite simple. They need a win and a Grizzlies loss to jump into the eighth seed. However, in the worst-case scenarios of results on Wednesday, they could fall as low as 11th.

The Mavericks are now one game behind the Jazz in the standings with two games to play, meaning Dallas could still pass Utah in the standings and climb up to sixth.

Boston Celtics vs. Memphis Grizzlies - 4:00 a.m.

Win probability: Celtics - 85%

This game is a must-win for the Grizzlies, who have gone 1-5 in the restart so far.

On the flip side, the Celtics are locked into the third seed in the East. So, not much at stake for them here.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Sacramento Kings - 6:30 a.m.

Win probability: Pelicans - 59%

This game would be a high-stakes contest if both teams were still in the running for the eighth seed but both were eliminated on Monday.

Other than wanting to finish off their trip to Orlando on a positive note with a win, not much on the line for either team here as well.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Washington Wizards - 6:30 a.m.

Win probability: Bucks - 91%

The Bucks have locked up the best record in the league and the Wizards were eliminated from playoff contention a couple of days earlier.

The result of this contest won't impact the seeding of either of these teams.
