Does the lower ranked wildcard team go into the division with the highest ranked team
That would be stupid, wouldn't it. Let's say 4 teams from each Division actually qualify, but the top seed from the Conference is in one Division and the lowest seed wildcard is in the other Division, then is the League actually going to switch matchups to opposite Divisions?
Just matchup the top seed within its own Divsion, why do it any other way.
