We'd have to finish 6th to be pretty safe, 5th to be totally safe. Still, 7th is the very least we need.

Tanking is taking its toll, losing sucks, but if we get the pick its all worth it. Can't wait till next season with a healthy roster and hopefully that coveted draft pick.

Detroit lost again and NO won again. NO is now three games ahead of us and they are two wins from us. They have three to play.

Houston is faltering, losing six straight and are now in 10th, one game behind Utah and Phoenix. They have fallen under the pressure where the Suns have risen.

Do the playoff tiebreakers apply? If so aren't we 0-2 against the nets? I know we have at least 1 loss against the raptors so we could just lose out and be good.

No, they do not apply. I believe it is a coin toss. This is what happened the year we were tied with washington:

http://www.nba.com/standings/2009/team_record_comparison/conferenceNew_Std_Div.html

But also, it affects how they split the number of lottery numbers the team gets.

In a rare good luck fashing for Warriors we won the coin toss, but then in the lottery Wizards won #1 overall pick, turned into John Wall. So had we lost the coin toss we would have had Wall....


EDIT:
Found the article where I read this:

Lottery teams finishing with the same regular season record split the number of combined chances in the lottery, and a blind draw determines which team receives the extra combination in case the total number of chances can not be split evenly. Should none of the tied teams win one of the top three picks, then a coin flip determines the draft order as it relates to the tied teams. Hence, even though Golden State and Washington each finished with a 26-56 record, the Warriors will pick before the Wizards in the first round (assuming neither team has one of the top three picks) and the two teams would swap position in the second round.

You got it. They split the ping pong balls and have a coin flip to determine the slotted order.

Thanks for the clarification, like I said, I've never rooted for a team to tank. That sucks.

Cleveland giving the Knicks a great 3 Qtrs...

If they can hang on in this 4th Qtr then that will be a big PLUS for us.

Cleveland with the big win against the desperately needing to win Knicks. If we lose, that'll put Cavs one game ahead of us. Today could be very big as well.
