There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

It’s a very tight race for the final play in spot as the 10th Seed in the Eastern Conference.

Bulls, Wizards, and Raptors all having near identical records.

10 more games to prepare for the lottery and counting all the lucky balls with the 6-7% of winning it all.

They are out of the 7/8 race so no chance at getting the #7 seed, so after getting beat at home by BK without Harden, there is no use.

If they finish 9/10 then win 2 games, they will either get swept or lose in 5 (if best of 7).

Let's just say we do make the playoffs....imagine how terrible the atmosphere would be in Tampa compared to Toronto.

If last night is any indication it's going to be 7 away games for the Raptors after those Brooklyn chants.

Who knows with this season. Whenever I think we're about to go on a run, we lose some winnable games. Whenever I think we're dead in the water, we string together a few really good games.

Washington's schedule looks pretty tough though. 5 of their next 6 against teams still fighting for their playoff lives/HCA; Indiana still has a chance to climb to 8th (which means they'd need to win just 1 of 2 potential play-in games to secure a playoff spot) and we'd be right on Washington's tail if we beat them on Thursday while Atlanta is still within striking range of the #4 seed.

Another miracle win against the Clippers on Tuesday coupled with Washington losses on Monday and Wednesday then our fate is basically in our hands again.

I like the play in. Watching Lowry torch the Lakers in what should be a meaningless game gave me great joy

Toronto. Tie breaker is the head to head winner. We are 2-0 against them, and play them once more.

You would rather league wide tanking for picks instead of more competitive games?

Thanks man. I was lazy to go look that up.

We’re finishing 10th.........

Whichever side of the tank divide you're on, the last 7 games of the season will be exciting. You can't completely count them out but I think Chicago has accepted their fate. So, it's between Toronto and Washington for the play-in spot. Other than the WAS/CLE game, the remaining games of both teams have standings implications for teams either fighting for home court, to maintain their position or to even stay within the top 8 of their conferences.

Dis gunna b gud!
