    What the hell is up with the Sixers? They make the Cavs, Bucks, and Lakers look like the Thunder.

    Chance to go 4 game up against Phoenix tomorrow as they play the Heat. Also chance to close in on 3rd seed as the Blazers play the Thunder.

    Assuming the Blazers lose to the Thunder tomorrow, as long as the Rockets take care of business on Wednesday, they could either go two games ahead of Clippers or take 3rd seed.

    I feel very confident in this team right now, we are finally healthy and look great.
    D-mo has turned a corner and is progressing well.

    I'd love a bench upgrade at the deadline, but would like to keep Asik at least until the end of the season.

    I feel positive, we've had some terrible losses and had we been fully healthy could be up another 2-3 in the W column

    Portland plays thunder then clippers on a b2b while we play the wizards. Chance the rockets move into 4th by Friday.

    Clipper and Thunder look good I see us as a second or third seed by the end of the year. Dwight makes games easier to win when you use him right...

    It is only going to get worse. They probably trade Turner and Young before deadline. They might actually get someone to overpay for Hawes as well.

    This season is going about as well as could be expected. Early court integration and rotation issues followed by team cohesion by the all star break, hopefully culminating in a healthy and well oiled basketball machine for the stretch run. Asik coming back and getting into game shape will transform the bench into a force to be reckoned with. Entry passes to Howard are starting to look crisp. Jones playing like the athletic freak he is. D-Mo looking better each and every game. Harden iso ball is fast disappearing, and he is playing very good defense. Turnovers and allowing offensive rebounds are the only real issues anymore.

    I am so HAPPY!

    1 game back of Portland. 1 game back of the 3rd seed.

    Even if we have a better record than Portland, they will still be a top 4 seed because they are on top of their own division. Let's paint a target on the Spurs, worry about beating the Spurs and we can be 2nd seed.

    Pretty sure they are in the same division as OKC, so no, they would drop out of the top 4.

    The Wiz won't go down so easily, we can't look beyond them. Thank goodness they'll be coming off a tough game against Memphis

    I would prefer it if Portland wins tomorrow against the Clippers.

    Having a two game room against Clippers is huge. Portland is expected to drop anyways since they have the toughest 2nd half schedule amongst all other Western Conference teams, Clippers on the other hand probably won't be losing too many games.

    Yep, they will swap places with us becaues we are 2-1 against them. Rockets could have the 3rd seed Wednesday night.

    Yeah, you're right, they are behind OKC in the Northwest division.

    Anyways, we still need to take care of business, can't rely on higher teams to lose. At the end of the season, the difficulty of each team's schedules will even out eventually. Just need to beat the teams we should beat.

    NO MORE TRAP GAMES !
