    The Pelicans have the easiest schedule and Portland Might make it. Memphis is out they will free fall. Its time for the young blood grizzlies to pay dues. The infamous whistle is about to humble those upstarts. They will be back next year though.

    Voted for Portland.

    I did tons of research to come up with my answer (meaning, I watched the entirety of the last game Memphis played and -- let me tell you guys -- that other team whupped em good).

    Hopefully Nola.

    Sacramento looks to make a run.
    Memphis with a tough schedule.

    Portland has to get Dame completely healthy.

    Its gonna be Nola almost for sure. Portland has a few more games without lillard and they has sucked this year.
    Nola has the easiest schedule of all and are on the uprising.
    Memphis got bad cards. Jaren Jackson injury and lots of away games, they are falling of the cliff sadly.

    That was quick. Memphis losing that spot in 3-5 games even.

    I voted for New Orleans...they are playing better than Memphis and Portland, their remaining schedule isn’t that difficult, and they are the team I would much rather see in the playoffs

    I want to see Zion in a playoff setting...Memphis is lacking in talent, and Ja isn’t nearly as interesting as Zion...Portland is Portland, there’s nothing interesting about them either

    New Orleans is a lot more fun to watch than either Memphis or Portland, especially Portland

    Memphis is injured

    They need Brandon Clarke and Jaren Jackson back, then the rest are toast, again

    problem is, this might linger

    Pels. They look like the best team, and as the posters have already pointed out they have the easiest schedule. It would be great for the league to have Zion and LeBron go at it in the 1st round. The former Lakers involved in the AD trade would have something to prove. It would be must see TV.
