    Prediction.

    So far we're ranked 7th in the Western Conference (tied with Clippers but they currently hold the tie-breaker).

    Top teams in the West so far:

    #1 - Blazers
    #2 - Spurs
    #3 - Thunder
    #4 - Warriors
    #5 - Mavericks
    #6 - Clippers
    #7 - Rockets
    #8 - Grizzlies

    We were 8th last year, unless something drastic happens I'm pretty confident we'll have a higher seed than last year (we damn better), but how high?

    If they can figure out how to play some defense .... they can be top 2. Otherwise , they wont have home court for any series.

    San Antonio is actually 1 right now.

    It's going to be close. I say we'll be a 4/5th seed and matched with either the Thunder or Warriors first round.

    SAS, LAC, GSW, OKC, HOU, DAL, POR, MIN

    can't sleep on

    timberwolves
    pelicans (won 2straight since Anderson is back)
    lakers (kobe will be back soon they will make playoffs just like they did last yr)
    Denver

    I really hope we can get home court, but we can't keep saying its beginning of season give it time, west is stacked and if we don't get home court we will face okc, spurs, clippers or GSW first round

    Just imho personally, anything less than a 5th seed will feel like a bit of disappointed after all the hype this summer to get Dwight.

    I think they will be 6th seed just cause they have to learn on the fly

    I second that. We are not good enough to be top 3 and too good to be bottom 3.

    For me, I feel like we are going to be a top four seed but honestly, it just about getting to the playoffs. Surprises can happen and we have the talent for when we get to the playoffs we can make a lot of noise. See the 95 Rockets.

    Don't get caught in the hype machine. ;) There is still time to get out!

    Overrated team is overrated. 5th team at best in the conference.

    If defense can some how improve, top 4 easily. If defense remains the way it is, this team may battle to make the playoffs all together, that's how bad the D especially perimeter D has been so far. Remember, this is the West. I wouldn't be shocked to see a 50 win team not make the playoffs in the West.

    Not sure how anybody can say we're Top 4 at the moment. Maybe we improve enough to sneak in, but I say bottom 4.
