Re: Playoff Watch:
Last night, the Lakers snuck out a win in Golden State to regain a 2.5 game lead on the Clips for the Pac Division title. Dallas escaped in Houston and tied with the Clips for 4th place and Memphis took Minnesota to stay within a half game behind the Clips.
Tonight, we host the Suns, who have cooled off but still are hoping to stay in the hunt as they are 2 out of the 8th seeded Nuggets and 7th seeded Jazz.
Utah plays in Boston and they are 1.5 behind us, currently in the 7th seed and .5 up on the 9th seeded Rockets.
Spurs are 6.5 ahead of us and have a game in Sacramento. They are not mathematically out of reach but essentially are.
Nothing overly dramatic on todays games, but best case scenario, we cut to 2 behind the Lakers, 5.5 behind the Spurs for 2nd and a bigger cushion on 7th seeded Utah,
