Default updated playoff scenarios?

so the lakes beat the spurs and houston lost. what happens if we lose to the kings?

and what is going on with dallas losing to seattle? who could we possibly face first round? this is going down to the wire.

Dallas is locked at the 7th seed, cant move up or down..

if lakers loose on tues, they will end the season as the #3 seed [maybe, unlikely as the #2]

if lakers win, they get the #1 and homecourt until the finals!

so depending on tuesdays outcome, we will either face pheonix, denver, or golden state? tuesday becomes the third straight big game.

its fair to say GS is out of it..

so 6-7-8 is phx dall den respectivly

if lakers win on tues it is automaticly Den..

if they loose, then it depends on houston winning the next 2 games and NO winning the next 2 games..

My Choice Order:

1. Denver

2. Dallas

3. Golden State

4. Suns




I think the only "Given" is Denver.. all the others would be difficult but I think out of the last 3 dallas is the one they fit well against when it comes to style, because G.State can go off with their run and gun style.. ditto with the suns, and while I would love to deliver a little retribution... why risk getting beat by Shaq, Nash, and Amare...

but I still believe that even with those 3.. the lakers would still kick some ball of fire butt

IF we beat Kings, we are the #1 seed. In that case we will either face dallas, denver, or gsw.

Only way gsw gets in is if denver lose to grizz and gsw beats phx and seattle. Im guessing denver is IN

denver beats grizz
dallas lose to hornets
We get dallas

denver beats grizz
dallas beat hornets
We get denver

Most likely, if we clinch that 1 seed, its going to come down to dallas on the last day of the season deciding their fate..lose to NOH and play Lakers first round or beat NOH and avoid LA first round...

Now if we blow it and lose to Kings on tuesday...its wide open again, and anything can happen

This should be a telling game as to how ready the Lakers are for the playoffs...

Amazing how the western conference is not yet decided with only one to two games left in the season!!!

Plus, the Lakers are playing solid defence and is also scoring as good if not better than most at this time...


I honestly would be worried with anyone that is not the Nuggets. But with denver, even if they push the Lakers, Im confident it would not be enough to beat them in a seven game series.

I can easily see the winner coming out of the west having to have played 3, 7 games series while boston sweeps their way and waits having played only 12 "tuneup" games... maybe they'll die of boredom or old age wating for the west to crown a champion
