    It's crunch time.

    The results of the games for the other teams out West have to be tracked and over analyzed at this point as we try to leapfrog several teams.

    Figured this would be a good place to keep that discussion grouped together.

    Great thread. The next game against the Mavs is crucial. Luka and Kyrie will get their's, but the key is attacking them in the paint. I think they have one of the worst interior defenses in the league. If Lebron and AD are locked in I think we will win.

    Suns beat Thunder. Check.

    Clippers lose in a wild double OT, second most points ever. 0-1 with Russ. Check. Check.



    Good night for the Lakers. Only one that didn't go our way was the Warriors game.

    If that game went to triple overtime, most definitely would of been the highest scoring game ever

    OKC, Portland, Minny and Pels dropping games in the last couple nights. Love to see it.

    I think together with the Jazz, those are the teams we have the highest chance of getting over. Warriors depends on health. Then Clippers and Mavs will be the ones to beat if we dream about the top6.

    But we need to get one at a time. It would be nice to be over OKC and Portland by some point next week

    So 14-8 is what they're trying to accomplish. I don't think that's enough. I think it might take 16 wins.


    Cranjis thinks it's 44 wins to get to 6th

    Could we just get into the frickin’ play-in before we start worrying about the 6th seed?

    Clippers were playing some tenacious defense

    Agreed, one step at a time! Enjoy the process but be prepared emotionally to fail.

    Knicks making a mockery of the Pelicans

    That's helpful.

    Spurs vs. Jazz is the other one to watch for the night

    Have you seen the Spurs lately? I don't see how they can win that. But again... anything's possible. Maybe we can get lucky for once. Spurs are currently up by 13... somehow.

    Jazz can't buy a 3 in the first half and Kris Dunn has been their best player. If that trajectory continues. Just maybe Spurs will fall into a W.


    And here's what the NO loss means

    Snapshot of standings for historical comeback purposes

    Just 22 games left. Time for a couple of decent winning streaks. Feels very doable.

    A win against the Mavs would be a real claim.

    Well, when looking at the 7-10 teams, all of them have gotten worse in the past couple of weeks, only the Lakers have actually gotten better.

    We are going to make the playin, the question is, can we pass the Mavs or Clippers?

    Let's see if we can win this super-important game today. Of course, the Spurs found a way to lose last night after being up by 13. I knew it.

    Spurs realized they were playing NBA caliber basketball and Pop had to talk them down at the half.


    Other than our game, here's the ones to watch today

    Let's see if we can get lucky and get losses from OKC, Minny, and Clipps. Really don't see Blazers dropping to the Rockets.
