    Lots of shake up from the standings yesterday...unfortunately all the teams we needed to lose...all won.

    Denver got a tough win in OT over the Magic...

    OKC had a comeback victory over the Nets...such a bummer that this happened...coulda caught up with these guys!

    Clippers finally lost but they lost to Memphis, the team right behind us

    Twolves got another win...boy do they look like a different team or what? (D-Rose anybody?)

    Mavs lost, but they lost to the Pelicans whom I don't want winning anything for AD reasons...

    Warriors beat the Cavs (expected)


    got the rockets/jazz tonight and suns/blazers...blazers really need a win and i expect them to crush the Suns to get it...

    We remain 2 back for 1st but Memphhis is only a half game back of us, and portland is not far behind only 2 back...

    Saturday's game is very important for us...cannot afford to lose to Memphis

    Denver lost 2 games in a row,
    Clippers lost to Miami and I am still pissed that Refs helped lowly spurs

    They are overrated.

    Jokic is amazing but he isn't winning you games on the line. He is not a closer by any stretch of imagination. Murray, Harris etc are going to have to win games but don't look mature and consistent enough yet.

    Look how close we are! Also, I don't have a clue what's happening in Houston, I only know they have a problem. Also, look at those Clippers losing 2 in a row. I was hoping we could play them in the first round, but... we'll stay solid, they will start losing more. The Nuggets are in trouble now. The Mavs are starting to play better. Jazz too.

    Jazz-Spurs today should be an interesting game. Other than that, nothing good until Monday.

    How about a full calendar? Check the first post! Otherwise, the simple schedule is here (Eastern Times):

    The Kings are still surprising in the mix. Nuggets will start diving soon with all their injuries. You just gotta think the Rockets will figure it out at some point, Pelicans can’t afford to not figure it out.

    I hope we can get into the top 4, have a feeling it’ll be a bloodbath down the line for 5-8.

    I added the simple schedule to the first post and edited the title. Enjoy! Can make it a sticky too if necessary.

    In the top 5, 3 teams (Including us are 7-3) for the last 10 games. 2 teams are 6-4.

    Literally at this point, the juggling isn't major every 10 games unless someone goes on a great winning streak or losing streak. We're sitting pretty if we can maintain/improve.

    I'm loving where we are right now in 5th. If we could land in the top 5 by the end of the year that would be perfect. Realistically I had thought 6-8th so if we could move up it would be a happy development.

    Man, @HOU feels like a trap game to me, but otherwise our 5-game road trip takes us to some dogs%@t opponents: @HOU, @CHA, @WAS, @BKN, @NO

    I agree about Houston. It will be a tough game and we need to win it. They got a W last night vs Pelicans.

    Very telling sequence upcoming. 3-2 would be roughly expected. Less would be disappointing, more would be great. Nets and bugs aren't as easy outs as one would think based on record--bkn in particular has lost a lot of heartbreakers; hou will beat us.

    You didn't have to even say that. It is implied by virtue of the post being by abeer3.
