    I think tonight clinched tiebreaker with Utah. Houston won season series with Denver 2-1. Rockets and Clippers and Rockets and Lakers have split two games and Rockets have one game remaining with each.

    We split 2-2 with Denver, and are 2-1 over Clippers (with one left).

    As long as Rockets and Lakers wins their Division, Rockets will have tie-breaker over Clippers whether they win next game or not

    I hope we can at least get the third seed, and Clippers falls to the fourth seed. I don't like facing any of LA teams before WCF (If we get there).

    JH and WB working out perfect synergy

    Covington a beast

    Overall D has stepped up when needed

    3s falling.

    MDA being smart again

    Yep, I stand corrected on Denver and Clippers. Found the following on Rocketwire: “If the Rockets win their division and the Nuggets don’t win theirs, Houston would own the tiebreaker over Denver — even if the Nuggets have a superior conference record (which they likely will).”

    Of course Denver’s main competition for their division is Utah. Clippers share their division with Lakers. If Denver wins their division, they currently have strong tie-breaker advantage over Rockets

    If this team came locked and loaded from the start of the season, and didnt throw away a bunch of games, we would be right there with the Fakers at the top spot.

    This. We don't really need the 2nd seed. If we are 3rd and LAC are 4th, we're good.

    Clippers and Denver plying on the 28th. We are guaranteed to gain one game in the loss column from on e of them.

    Jazz and Rockets tie in win-loss. Currently tiebreaker goes to Rockets. Rockets won more in head 2 head. Rockets is also currently southwest division leader, whereas Nuggets is ahead of Utah in Northwest division.

    Seems like an easy schedule, but we seen this before. Hoping even if they lose a few weird games against below .500 teams, that some of the games they show up for like (Last year rockets blew doors on the last few months of schedule) Sixers, Clippers, they can atleast go 21-5. Rockets look to be on pace for this... Clippers thou i agree with 538, this looks like based on predictions something like this will happen. Cross fingers.

    Take a look >
    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-nba-predictions/

    1 . LAKERS 61-21
    2 . CLIPPERS 56-26
    3 . ROCKETS 55-27
    4 . NUGGETS 55-27
    5 . JAZZ 52-30
    6 . MAVERICKS 49-33
    7 . THUNDER 48-34
    8 . PELICANS 41-41

    Could very well see the clippers in the 2nd round if we can get passed mavs based on the 1-8-2-7 bracket. If the rockets can go 21-5 and tie clippers it would be cool getting that 2nd seed. We are 3-1 against them, as well we have 1 more game soon to prove are worth but have already own the series if we lost this.

    Fair weather pussies can jump back on the bandwagon if you're done bitching.
