Three-way tie

Can someone clarify the NBA rules for the tiebreaker, in the case of a three-way tie? Specifically if DAllas, Phoenix, and Memphis ended up in that situation.

Would the rules differ if it were a three-way tie for seventh seed rather than a three-way tie for the eighth seed (which I realize is virtually impossible this year, but just curious about the rule)?

I know the tiebreaker rules when it comes to two teams (we lose out on a tiebreaker to Memphis, but with a victory against Dallas later this year, we'd win a tiebreaker against the Mavs). However, I'm not familiar with the rules for a three-way tie.
