    And with the 14th pick of the NBA draft the Rockets select........'...'

    The clippers winning isn't bad... I'm content to settle into the 5th seed.

    Good shot at revenge

    Clips winning is the best case scenario... this way SA would have to go all out next game against the Pels, which means we have a bigger chance of getting that draft pick. Plus, we get to play Portland with HCA. Second round is irrelevant at this point, since you just pick your poison with GSW or SA.

    Clippers winning tonight is great for us. What we want is to either be 2nd facing Dallas or 5th facing Portland. And BTW, if the Spurs do lose Wednesday and the Grizzlies hold serve at home against Indiana, I think that would leave LA in 3rd and the Spurs in 6th. Let those two slug it out in the first round.

    If clips win. Rockets win. Spurs lose.

    Are we 2nd or 3rd? I've seen both scenarios so just making sure.

    The difference between pick 14 and 18 isn't really significant. The difference between 2nd seed and 5th is

    We would be the 2. Winning a division trumps any and all tiebreakers.

    SA will likely win tomorrow, which means that if the Clips lost tonight, we would likely end up with the 3rd seed, which is bad. Given our current situation, the Clips winning is the best case scenario.

    we are 5th seed(4th with HCA) right now since clips won.

    if spurs lose, rockets win, we are 2nd seed because we win division and division trumps

    Batum got injured tonight.

    Pottland seems the easiest way out the first round. Even more so than the 2 against Dallas.

    But the 2seed is much more compatable with advancing past the 2nd rd than the 5 seed

    I honestly see GSW and Spurs as equally bad in the second round.

    I would rather be in San Antonio With a somewhat rockets crowd than Oracle Arena.

    Much rather face SA than GSW. I feel like we match up better with the Spurs and give them matchup problems. Warriors have so much fire power right now I just rather face them in the WCF if we do play them

    Well put it this way.

    Home court against spursn which is imo the more preferred opponent. Or on the road against by far the best team this season.

    They are both very difficult. One scenario just happens to have some outliers that could help us.

    Big game Wednesday. This regular season really does feel at least one win better. The playoffs will destroy me, whatever the outcome. Then it's all blue Mondays for the whole summer I'm afraid...

    Which is why we should let them fight it out in the second round while we get HCA for the 2nd round. SA gives GS trouble.

    While I'd love another shot at Portland, the 2nd seed and the ability to avoid GS as long as possible is the best thing.
