Well, we have officially claimed a playoff spot! And after tonight's win and Charlotte's loss, we're now tied with Atlanta for the third spot in the East again!

1) Cleveland 55-22
2) Toronto 51-25
T3) Boston 45-32
T3) Atlanta 45-32
T5) Charlotte 44-32
T5) Miami 44-32
T7) Detroit 41-36
T7 ) Indiana 41-36

We now finish the season with four out of five games at home (NO, Mil, Cha, Mia) and one away game (Atl). We definitely control our own destiny. If we take care of business the next two games and win in Atlanta, we should have sole control of the third seed.

If we win the next 5 games, not only will we be a 50 win team, but also will be guaranteed the 3rd seed.

Atlanta, Cha, and Miami to finish will be interesting. all of us trying to avoid 4th and 5th...

Problem is Atlanta has both the tiebreaker (division winner) and easier program (assuming Cavs and Toronto decide to rest players). It will be a very tight race.

On a diff note, ET's eye injury might turnout to be serious.

"So he's got bleeding in his eye," said Boston head coach Brad Stevens. "They're looking at -- an internist is looking at him right now and we don't know the extent of the injury, but clearly he got some eye poke and hopefully not too much trauma. We'll find out as we stick around here."

It looked like a cheap shot from Randle to me, anybody see it that way? Looks like he popped him in the face. ET has been huge for us let's hope this isn't serious.

He is picking his spots so well lately. His post game is seriously good..

Really big night for our playoff seedlings.

Charlotte currently down 11 to Toronto;

Atlanta up 9 on Phoenix;

Detroit and Miami just getting started.

It'd be nice to see three losses, but I'd be happy with Charlotte and Miami both losing to put them a game back of us in the standings, which one would think would virtually put them out of the race of passing us since we own the tiebreaker for both of them.

Phoenix up 10 on Atlanta after the first quarter. But few teams have as blatant 4th quarter tanking instructions as them.

Oh man that would be perfect...a Suns win and a Hawks loss for playoff positioning.. would be a dream scenario if they win this.

Of course as you said I'm sure they're going to blow it.

Phoenix up 12 at the half! This would be a HUGE result for us.

Why is Phoenix so bad??
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

you vs. the guy she tells you not to worry about

I mean, so bad. Since I have turned it on, only weird bad things have happened if you are a Suns fan. I guess we are not going to get lucky in this one.

Getting to 3rd is pretty important, because we could avoid the Cavs until Round 3.
