I think Minny has a chance to sneak in there......and I think it may come down to Houston and Minny for the final spot.

Classic DD being wrong. This post should be saved. There is no way Minny is gonna make the playoffs.

Their improvement is definitely remarkable. But playoffs in the West? Sorry but no.

They are 1 game behind us, and they own the tie breaker, I may be wrong, but don't underestimate their team.

You're not wrong for once.

I see Minny getting the 8th spot (Maybe) but I see us getting the 5th or 6th spot because Denver is about to tank. Gallo means too much to their offense and he'll be missing for at least 2 weeks. I still don't think Minny is mature enough to stay consistent.

Yep, everything we have seen from this team thus far shows that they will definitely make the playoffs...

That likely means the Rockets won't have a pick higher than 15 in this draft (NY will make the playoffs). That sucks, but it's worth it if we get a shot at SA or Denver in the first round, especially SA. A rematch against the Lakers would be nice, but I don't think we stand much of a chance even though they are older.

Still 41 games to go.

I think either way some really good teams are going to miss the playoffs in the West.

I would love to get a stab at upsetting the Spurs in the playoffs.

It seems like we have played them a 100x this season already, it only makes sense that we see them in the first round. Between the Clippers, Thunder and Spurs...I'd go with the Spurs.

It's been a weird season..a Houston Rocket first round upset victory could be in the making.

15 games at home outta 25.

Amazing that the Grizzlies look like they will have a very tough time making the playoffs again.
