    I kind of wanted them to lose tonight but I think theyíre kind of locked into that seven spot no matter what anyway which is just fine. Theyíre going to have to play well in the play-in game and be done with it.

    The Suns are clearly the best matchup for a healthy Lakers team. A team with no playoff experience who really honestly played over their heads this year. The Lakers did just beat them without LeBron so that was a good sign. Devin Booker scares me but the Lakers should be able to beat them in a seven game series.

    So the dummy Lakers decided to win today. Iím telling you they will be better off IN the play-in game and avoiding the fucking Clippers. Although maybe not having to travel for that series would be a benefit to them I donít know. I wouldnít be worried about that series if the Lakers werenít injured all season long. I would love to see them smack the Clippers in the mouth and beat them but I just donít know if they can right now.

    It will only matter if the Lakers win again tomorrow at New Orleans and if Denver wins tomorrow at Portland. Right now, Denver is #3 and the Clippers are #4. I have a feeling that Denver will roll over for Portland tomorrow so they can fall to #4 and keep Portland at #6, thereby avoiding a first round match up with the Lakers. Also, the Clippers might roll over tomorrow at OKC to stay at #4 and draw #5 Dallas and avoid the Lakers in the first round, regardless of what happens in the Denver/Portland game.

    IMO, the best scenario for the Lakers would be for the final standings to look like this:

    (1) Utah
    (2) Phoenix
    (3) Denver
    (4) Clippers
    (5) Dallas
    (6) Lakers
    (7) Portland
    (8) Golden State
    (9) Memphis
    (10) San Antonio

    That would keep the Lakers out of the play in and match them up with Denver (with no Jamal Murray) in the first round. If they get past Denver, they would then likely meet Phoenix. Utah, the Clippers and Portland would all be on the other side of the bracket. This scenario is a long shot, but who knows?

    How many flops?



    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Pretty cool stat line, love it when stuff like that happens.

    I had the exact same experience. Kobe and my dad passed within a month of each other.

    There is now no scenario in which the Lakers and Clippers can meet in the first round. The Lakers can only get the 6th seed with a victory over New Orleans and a Denver win at Portland, which would give Denver the 3rd seed and keep the Clippers at the 4th seed. Also, I don't see Denver trying very hard to win at Portland today and risk meeting the Lakers in the first round.

    Yeah itís the play in game. It is what it is. Iím sure the Lakers will get it done. Iím not honestly that worried about it. Itís a good tuneup to get in the playoff mind set. If they canít win the play in game they probably werenít going to win the NBA title anyway.

    The Lakers (if necessary) actually have two games in the play in tournament to get into the playoffs. And, as you wrote, if they canít win one of those, then they arenít good enough to win the title.

    Pretty funny seeing the Clippers tank against the Rockets and Thunder and the Nuggets tank against the Blazers to avoid the Lakers in the first round. If the Lakers can beat the Warriors on Wednesday night, the bracket will be set up for them about as well as they could expect as the 7th seed.
