So, if Denver do the job tomorrow on the Lakers, and the Suns can topple the Bulls trainwreck, we officially enter the ZONE OF PICK CONVEY...

Woot...

P.S Then when the Clippers inevitably start winning games again, pick goes to 4th with only Dallas, Chicago, Sac, and Atlanta worse. Probably stays that way, although after today's game, I wouldn't be surprised if Atlanta win a fair amount of games this year...

GIVE ME THAT SECOND PICK IN THE DRAFT. GIIIIIIVE IT. GIVIT. GIVE. GIMME. GIVE. I want to rule ALL of these lands, I want Alacazar.
that works perfectly cuz we need them 4th too. I think someone Said it gives us the best chances at 2 and 3 it if any other position

Really? How so?

According to Tankathon.com, the 4th worst team will have the best chance  of sneaking into the top 3 at 37.8%. that is compared to everyone else out of the top 3. The 5th place team chances decrease to 29.1%.

This is still a tough year.

Phoenix is awful and getting awfuler without Bledsoe.
Dallas is simply awful. So is Chicago.
I'm embarrassed to say how badly I overestimated Sacramento.

That's four. Atlanta has shown some signs of life and the Clippers will be fine, but the Lakers have a couple of decent players in Lopez and KCP, the bench isn't awful and the rookies have potential. This year is going to be tough to get into the top 5, absent some help from the lottery.

The biggest plus is just how bad Sacramento has been. I figured this would be the year that their youth movement would start to pay dividends. Oops.

I'm not in panic mode. I have no problem with the Lakers being the 7th-8th worst team in the league, there is always the lottery option.

I'm more focused on Sacramento being bad but not getting a top-5 pick, to ensure next year we may have a good pick in case it doesn't convey in 2018. I don't think they can get any top FAs next summer so they should keep quite bad for 2018-19.

Suns vs. Bulls game going on right now. Win-win situation for us there.

If Suns win and Lakers lose as well, then Lakers would be worse than Suns and would be 4th worst in West (with Clippers 3rd worst, though don't expect that to last).

If Bulls win, that helps too, as you predict Dallas and Chicago will just downright be awful all season, so have to hope they can get their wins whenever possible.

Either way, GO NUGGETS!  :laugh:

Millsap’s hurt.

No idea what was said. Jokic thought he got fouled twice on one play, said something to ref. Coach rushed onto the court to argue with ref and was held back by an assistant.

Not refs. Ref.

One ref gave both Ts and then threw them out.
Brad Stevens is greater than you think.

It feels like the Lakers played a lot of home games.

It’s because they have.  And a lot vs. teams from east of the Mississippi (so teams on long road trips).
