Anyone see Philly just put up 47 in the first quarter against the Golden Suck Warriors?

Simmons with 18 points and 9 assists at the half. Embiid with 17, Covington with 15, and Redick with 13.

That's a legit playoff team in the East.

Confusing as I saw this too (Simmons with 18 in the first half).  He now shows 15 in the box score near end of the third.

That's a relief, I thought I was going crazy for a minute there.

Marc Gasol got a tech for kicking a player's shoe off the court LOL.

Marc isn't a tech kind of guy....looked like he was just trying to get it out of the way before someone rolled an ankle.

Fairly slow pace game. Kidd tried for a little too long to pull the Bucks back into it though.

Today we need:

Nets to beat warriors
nuggets to beat Lakers
Bulls to beat suns (a wash either way, no confidence bulls will add up wins but you never know )
Wolves to beat pistons (give us larger margin from 1 to 2 seed)
Heat to beat pacers (so they don't fall behind Lakers in win count, wash either way)

No, we don't. The Heat are a better team that the Pacers and it should be proven over the course of the season.

Firstly, posts like this are probably best for the Lakers watch thread.

Secondly, Iíd prefer Phoenix over Chicago.  The Bulls are terrible and want to get that high pick this year.  The Lakers are not finishing below Chicago.  Phoenix has had a bottom 4 record two years running, and might want to pretend for some portion of the year that theyíre not terrible.  Itís possible (although not probable) that the Lakers finish beneath them.  Wins over Chicago will heíll that cause.

Remember, the big drop off between odds is from 4th place to 5th (from 70.9% that we get the pick to 46.5%).  We want the Lakers to have a bottom 4 record to have a better than even chance to get the pick.  So itís best if 2-3 teams on the bottom prop up the record of the next tier of bad teams (so Chicago, Dallas, and Sacramento lose to Phoenix and Atlanta), while of course beating the Lakers when they play.

TP.  Iíll just add Iím hoping the Kings catch the Lakers (only 2 wins away and the Lakers have a really tough schedule in December coming up).  The Mavs just had a surprising victory over the Bucks so who knows with them.  Iíd feel a whole lot better if the Lakers secure the 3rd worst record.
