one reason those East teams are still trying so hard (Orlando, Charlotte, Miami and Wizards) is because they see the potential of two spots being open. Brooklyn has slipped a little, and has a brutal schedule to finish the season.

I think the final two spots will ultimately be between Brooklyn, Miami and Orlando....but I hope Washington and Charlotte keep the faith for a little while longer.

the 8th spot should be the goal. Much more realistic (unless we completely shutdown Lebron) and the lotto odds are pretty close to the 6th spot.

I guess it appears close in simple numbers....but the % increase is large. For example, the 8th spot has a 6% chance at the #1 pick....while the 6th spot has a 9% chance at the #1 pick....that is a 50% increase in odds.

but still just a 3% increase in odds which is a negligible difference when doing a "single roll" lottery

Looks like LaVine is out today against the Lakers, if we want to counter attack we need to play Wagner/Ingram/Rondo/KCP/Caruso a lot of minutes.

Andre Ingram will destroy the tank. Have to let him sit or his legend will grow.

Bulls and Knicks are the teams we were guaranteed to win on the schedule.. I still think the tankathon is in good shape for us.

And just one more 'surprise win" and we are at 33 wins... probably 11th/12th in the draft....

Pelicans lose, and mav's down 4 with 5 to play in 4th vrs Spurs...

Its time to give Luke an early beach vacation and put a true tank commander in charge. As a lame duck coach he is not going to help us tank a game at the end by sitting our starters.
