    Unfortunate that Curry is coming back against us on Sunday...

    BUT
    Tuesday's game against Memphis, Ja is out (suspended) and Clarke is out (injury).

    I think we are likely out of miracles. Pelinka pulled off the last one at the deadline.

    yeah, we'll be very lucky to even get 10th, imo. rest of the season for me is about trying to find workable combinations with the new guys and hoping NO loses as much as possible.

    I'd take 6 of the next 10. I'm hoping for .600 ball going forward. We don't need miracles, we need solid wins at a competitive rate. 5 wins in the next 6 is way too big an ask IMO.

    Some important ones today:

    - us and the Warriors: after dropping to Minny, we really need to pick this one up.
    - Suns vs. Mavs: nearing the end of the 3rd with the Mavs up. Ayton is a bum.
    - Blazers vs. Magic
    - Jazz vs. Thunder
    - Grizz vs. Clippers: with all going on in Memphis, i'd be shocked if they won this one

    IF OKC can take Jazz later today, we're tied for 10th.

    Suddenly I like our odds in the Grizz game that was an automatic loss in my mind a week ago.

    Want to go 4-1 here. Knicks probably take us with how well they're playing right now. We need DLO back asap. I could see them waiting till the Toronto game, just to give him the week to get right.

    SGA comes back, scores 38 to lead OKC in win over the...(checks notes) Jazz. At the moment we are now tied for #10 with Utah, the last play-in spot.

    Things are so weird and bunched-up right now any team between #5 and #15 in the West could leap 2-3 spots in a matter of days. We gotta take care of biz and beat the...(checks to be sure) Grizzlies, on Tue.

    It's one thing to root for a Western Conference team to lose, but ya gotta win your own games. Obviously!

    Like: MEM is 14 games over .500 But the Clips DESPERATELY need to beat 'em tonight. MEM w/o Clarke and Ja, and supposedly LAC is famished, so I expect them to win. Only a truly epic Bad Game from Brick will save us here. Like a 12-3-6 game over 34 mins, on 1-13 from outside the paint bad. Is that too much to ask? We'd love to see it.

    Clippers were up 11 in the 3rd and are now down 14. Still in the 3rd. Keep on Clipping!

    Clips down 15 at the start of the fourth. Could this be the Westbrook curse?
