Come on, prove me wrong LA, drop two in a row. I dare you. You won't.

I feel like you may to blame here... :)

Can't believe the "you won't" failed me. Should have gone with the tried-and-true "triple dog dare".

This is what you like to see, somewhat fully committed to the tank, if only for one play. Can't believe Memphis beat a team by nearly 40.

SAC & SAS both won tonight at least. Pellies losing 2 in a row sucks, though.
BKN winning actually helps if MEM still makes the playoffs... file under tiny brass linings.

I think we just gave the Nets a break last night. And no Tatum in the game. Nets really have been pretty bad lately and LeVert had a fluke game.

I agree it's pretty damn frustrating to see this happen with Memphis. I still don't buy that the Lakers "lost" to them recently.

It's almost comical. LeVert seemingly hit more 3s in the 4th and overtime than the Nets did in this entire game.

Imagine 10 years into the future where teams are literally taking 75 threes a game. We're gonna have 60-70 pt blowouts some nights when one team is hot, the other stone cold.

Was kinda hoping SAC would beat Philly, but they Kinged instead. Not loving MEM still being 3.5 or more games up on everyone.
Let's go Mavs tomorrow!

Pelicans really tanked this ****. Don't see how they're going to pick up 5 **** games on the Grizzlies at this point. Lonzo Ball is shooting like 40% from three and it doesn't even help them.

Looks like Portland is the only team roster wise with Lilard that can catch Memphis. After Memphis last 3 game win streak first time I'm not optimistic. Hope for 10th draft pick is gone, Phoenix is out of race. I'm not counting Spurs out yet, but...looks like also Nop and Sac are to young and inexperienced.

It's up to Portland to get that 8th seed and bump Memphis to 14th...still better 17th pick ;)

I am confident Pelicans, Spurs and Blazers will be passing Grizzlies. In Chucks voice "I guarantee it!" But seriously, I feel 95% confident this happens.

Blazers, I can see. Spurs and Pels, not so sure, but hope so. Memphis needs to get to that "worst schedule in last quarter of the season" fast. I agree that a top 10 pick is out of reach, but outside chance at top 12, still hope.

Read on Twitter

What's the probability of Cs getting two-seed and Memphis getting 11th worst record?

Kings beating Toronto tonight would be huge.

Spurs, Blazers win. Grizz lose. It's going to be close. Memphis could still be a lottery pick.

Hope so. I made some bold statement they wouldn't be a playoff team. Stupid Kings and blazers...

Finally a good night for the pick. It's been a while. At least let BKN and ORL pass them.
But, still not counting out Dame & Zion. But they better kick it in gear.

Big road trip coming up for MEM: POR, UTA, SAS. They actually have 2 games in POR, so Blazers better hold serve. Then home & homes with TOR and NOP.

Full remaining:

@POR, @UTA, @SAS
OKC
@MIL
NOP, @NOP
BOS,
TOR, @TOR
NYK, DAL
@POR, @DEN
OKC, PHI
@HOU

I lost hope a few days ago, BUT...Memphis still has 3rd hardest remaining schedule!

- Nop has the easiest remaining
- Por Lilard looks better, Nurkic is returning
- Sas Aldridge is back
- Sac is also not out of the race

Still a slim chance at 11th draft pick ;)

Looking Mem schedule only sure win is NY and probably one of two OKC games and PHI second to last game of season....that's 3 wins, giving them 35 wins...probably for playoffs 38+ wins will be enough.

Will be super close imo, could be decided by head to head games or in multiple teams tiebreakers.
