    Dallas is locked at 7. Clippers can still fall to 3rd or 4th though

    This is not correct on Dallas or Clips. Clips can drop to 3 but cannot fall to 4

    Most likely doing their best to stay in the top 6 seeds and keep their pick. They want to have their cake and eat it too, lmao

    Clips can fall to 4 if they lose out. Denver and Houston both have to win out though.

    Clips to the 4th would be a nightmare scenario for Lakers.

    :D

    that dream scenario will probably end tonight when they lose to the lakers. Then we're going to unfortunately hear about how "see the lakers are just coasting and going to turn it on in their final 2 games into the playoffs":rolleyes:

    If they are protecting a 1st round pick then that makes more sense. Tank away.

    Clippers can't be 4. They have the tie breaker over the Rockets.

    Clippers can be 2 or 3.
    Nuggets can be 2 or 3 or 4.

    While it’s highly unlikely, there is a dream scenario where the clips fall to 4 as @HP3 mentioned. By clips losing out and both Denver/hou winning out

    also the rockets hold the tiebreaker over the clips bc they won their division. I don’t think it’ll come down to it but just FYI

    No Rockets have the tiebreaker over Clippers. They went 2-2 against each other and 2nd tiebreaker is Division champion. Clips can't win their division while Rockets won theirs.

    Aren't we going to pass Denver? They have difficult games left and only one loss less than we do. Or am I missing something?

    Chris Paul putting on a clinic right now in orchestrating a defense and offense. Great player. It's too bad he showed up to a title year out of shape.

    We would murder them in the playoffs.

    And with all teams playing in Orlando, does any team really have home court advantage? With exception to The Magic

    They lose their draft pick if they seed anything higher than 6th. They gotta tank all the way for the remaining games.

    Didn't watch the game, but box score says they lost by 27. How much of that was CP3 playing?
