Re: How to lock the #1 seed and homecourt
15 of the 20 losses came on the road so they absolutely need that HCA. Once they clinch that, esp on the East, bec, I don't think the Spurs would win the WCF, I would really like Rose, Deng and Boozer to rest. Thibs and his staff should also get ample time to prepare and dissect the future opponent.
At the same time, let Asik, CJ Watson etc play, expose them to situations that they would likely face in the playoffs.
