Important games for the tank tonight
#1- Chicago vs Toronto. Toronto has to lose this one to make sure they solidify their spot at 7. Losing to Chicago could spiral us out of the top 10 entirely if we go on a run.
#2 - Cleveland vs OKC - Tough to choose who to cheer for. Cleveland winning continues to open up that top 5 for us to sneak in, but if okc can wins the raptors would be alone at #7. Tough game, I guess I can would cheer for OKC because it doesn't seem to be that cleveland is purposely trying to tank this hard.
Detroit vs Sac - hoping coach casey can coach their scrubs out of a top 5 spot. Get some meaningless wins like he knows how to do
Small note. Chicago starts their back-to-back tonight. It's in their best interest to play full out against the Raptors and secure a W, lowering us and moving closer to the playoffs. Rather than conservating tonight's game and going full out against the Hawks tomorrow.
It's a smarter strategy for the Bulls IMO. Best case is that they make quick work against us, rest their starters, get ready for the Hawks and hopefully win that too. Creates more separation between us and them.
As for OKC v Cleveland. I would hope Cleveland gets the W. Then we can hand them another W on Saturday and pull them closer to us.
I'm happy with either result as long as we take care of business on our side.
