well if Nuggets maintain the 3rd seed it would actually be better to be 2nd seed to play them in the 2nd round over the Rockets
and another advantage of letting Memphis keep the 8th seed is that it anti-tanks their pick they give to the Celtics

Nuggets have a hard schedule compared with the Lakers, Clippers, and Rockets. There's a good chance the Rockets go straight over the top of them

I agree, i'd be very surprised if the season does not end with the Clippers as the 2nd seed and the Rockets as the 3rd.

Gonna get awfully hostile around here if we choke both weekend primetime games, as it would only be a 4 game lead in the loss column with LAC owning the tiebreaker.

I like Sacramento schedule of remaining games.

Dark horse to get the 8th spot.

I don't think SAC is a dark horse. Luke has them playing well. 12-5 in their last 17 with 2 wins against the Clips and 1 against Miami.

Number 1 seed in the west is practically in the bag for the Lakers. Lakers have 22 games left so to get to 62 wins they need to go 15 -7. The Clippers on the other hand have 21 games left an would need to go 20 -1 to get to 62 wins. I don't see it happening to be honest.

i want the Lakers to face Memphis in the 1st round. i want LBJ and AD not spending all their energy just to get out of 1st round. shove your "we don't care who we face" argument, you know it, i know it, everyone knows it, of the teams contending for the 8th seed, Memphis is the easiest of the bunch. i do not want us to face Portland, Dallas or Pelicans.

Rooting for the Rockets tonight.

Want Clippers to have to play Dallas the 1st round. Then Houston the 2nd round.

And Portland seems to be gearing up for that 8th spot knowing they can match up well with our length. FYI: Blazers got the 6th easiest remaining schedule.

Quote:
Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic, who has been sidelined for almost a year after a devastating leg injury, told Yahoo Sports he will make his season debut March 15 against the Houston Rockets. “I’m ready to help my team make the playoffs,” he told Yahoo Sports. “It’s time.”

“I worked my ass off to be in position to get back on the court and help my team, but game speed is going to be different,” Nurkic told Yahoo Sports. “I’m not going to be playing 40 minutes. But for me, mentally, I need to get these reps in before I can play [extended minutes]. Physically, I’m good. I had a calf strain recently, which is normal for the injury I had. I’ve been pleased with where my rehab is going. I never doubted I’d be back, but I had to make sure I was 100 percent. I can’t wait for [March 15].”

It will be the first time Nurkic will get to play with Hassan Whiteside, the center Portland traded for in the offseason as a placeholder and who is currently leading the league in blocks at 3.1 per game. “He’s my teammate,” Nurkic told Yahoo Sports. “I don’t know the plans going forward, but my mind is on how I’m going to help this team make the playoffs. We just need to sacrifice our games for the team’s good, do the little things that don’t show on the stat sheet and put our games together for possibly the playoffs. We have a chance, and when you have a chance, you’ve got to go get it.” – via Chris Haynes @ Yahoo! Sports

Potential path to the 🏆 so far, based on best records:

🐻 ➡ 🚀➡ 🚢➡ 🦌

Tough road. But it will be so worth it.

I kinda want the Spurs to get the 8th seed so we can see a 7 game series between LeBron and Pop

Pels and Spurs I’m cool with, you never know with Dame though

At this point I don’t really care who we match up with though, you’re as good as who you win against. If we can’t win against teams like the Rox/Jazz/Nuggets before we go up against LAC so be it, if we lose before the WCF we don’t deserve the chip anyway

That said, today’s win has made me more confident in this team and what it can do, keen for Sunday

I think that we won't have major problems in the first round, but I believe that we can win 4-0 against the Grizzlies or the Kings. But the other teams can win one or two matches.
