    I see no bias in this thread, and it’s refreshing

    Mavs were the only one to comply last night.

    Still 9th
    .5 back from Dallas
    .5 ahead of GS


    Tonight:

    Really need the W against the Kings

    Rockets have a halftime lead against Clipps.

    Might be a good night for us if we manage to beat the Kings.

    Tonight was worse case scenario. We failed, after getting help in the past couple days. The cherry on top is Clippers mounted a comeback to win and Warriors ran the Bucks out of the gym.

    0/3 and also this...

    Awful night for us, no getting around it. Pretty damn terrible.

    We have pretty much locked up 10th Pl., and I don’t see a whole lot changing that unless a team starts playing terrible and we pass them.

    i've had us finishing 10th for a month now, never really saw how that was going to change unless other teams had injuries.

    maybe next year we won't take the first part of the season as if it doesn't matter at all.

    Yeah, thought we could get to 8th. Idk.

    We're not making the PO's as the 10th seed, IMO.

    The regular season will be treated the same way as long as Bron and AD will be Lakers ..

    yeah, i think it starts at the top. the coach also thought that the early season was pure play time instead of a chance to get a lead in the standings.

    “playing with his food” …. courtesy of JSM a couple weeks ago.

    :Kobedisbelief:

    Wasn’t just early season either … more like 2/3 of it.

    I think I can spot the Heights of Dismality up ahead in the distance. Hand me those binoculars...

    With the games listed by Trevor Lane vis JSM, I see maybe one of those games going our way. Two going our way would be a total freak.

    Wonder what the story will be about what happened to us after the IST. 2nd Q last night reminded me of the 2nd half of that Brooklyn game.

    yeah, good question. someone will spill the details. my guess is still that lebron/AD were agitating for a trade and it hurt the locker room. people (including lebron and most fans) think this stuff doesn't matter, but it does.

    This is why wanting 8th is a terrible idea, especially after Towns injury



    Denver is only 1 game back

    They want to play us for sure if we get in, easy first round sweep for them.

    Spurs and Bulls each doing us a favor?

    both lead midway through the fourth over Kings and Warriors.
