Winning 2 is the easy part. Denver losing is completely out of our control. Hopefully the Bucks play their hearts out. They have been playing like crap. The Nuggets are coming off a back to back on the road without Faried and Gallo. Its possible the Bucks win.

The Bucks have lost 5 games in a row to Denver. Hopefully Milwaukee breaks that streak on Monday.

with the kobe-less lakers potentially taking that 8-seed, are we better off staying with that 4 seed and hoping they take out SA?

might be crazy, but i also think we match up better against SA than OKC.

SA will be the 2 seed not the 1 seed.

Let's face it. We're not getting the 3rd seed.

It's tough, Milwaukee has nothing to play for. Their playoff position is set. Hope they try to get a good playoff warmup against Denver.

nothing is guaranteed. when you saw denver was going to play SA and Dallas last week, did you think the dallas game was the one they would lose? probably not.

On paper denver has easy games. On paper so did we but we lost to the Magic at home.

Are we getting the 3 seed? not likely but it is not yet a fact that we are not, like you state it.

I am terrified to play Memphis. Even if Rudy the gay Gay isn't there nor Speights. Ed Davis is someone to watch out for off the bench, and Tayshaun may be old, but he's a little bit more well rounded than Gay was. They will be wanting blood after last years loss to us in round 1.

I really think the 3 division winners in each conference should automatically get the top 3 seeds. Just seems to make sense to me. Cuz what if Denver and San Antonio were 1 and 2 in the standings? How crappy is that if 2 teams from 1 division get the top 2 seeds?

Let's just hope we can take games 1 and 2 at home, I have a feeling we will lose 2 of the 3 games we would play in Memphis if it goes that far.

Okay so Denver has the 3 seed. No way Phoenix beats them in Denver. So now it comes down to the fact that we HAVE to win our last two to have HCA over Memphis.

Unless a hungry Utah team can beat Memphis in Memphis. It is possible but unlikely.

Unbelievable. How many 1 point games have those AHoles won! Whatever, we own Memphis. I guess we'll get a chance to break their hearts again.

What really sucks is they'll probably lose to GS in the first round. No Gallo. Faried is hurt. Sucks but we've had a lot of chances during the year and lost so many close games that we should have won.

This win by Denver hurts. It's not about fearing Memphis but that 1 point loss could be the difference between clippers-Memphis matchup which instead of a 4-5 matchup it's more like a 3-3 matchup and clippers-Houston/gsw/lal(all 3 could shuffle these last two days) which would be more like a 2-7 type of matchup.

The latter being a quick 5 game series while the likely scenario being a grueling, draining 7 game series.

Nevertheless I still have hope, go Phoenix.

Magic number= combination of your wins and opponents losses.

Clippers to finish ahead of Memphis= 2

Memphis to finish ahead of clippers= 2

Clippers to finish ahead of Denver= 3

denver to finish ahead of clippers= 1

Denver to finish ahead of Memphis= n/a Denver WILL finish ahead of Denver

Memphis to finish ahead of Denver= n/a

will update daily until all 3 spots are clinched. Hard but not impossible. With 2 games left last season clippers magic number was 1, memphis' magic number was 4 and they did it.

well milwaukee got robbed. 48 ft attempts for denver to 26 for the bucks? looks like the NBA definitely wanted denver to finish ahead of us.

Praying for the jazz to win to mainly help us out but also maybe knock out the lakers!

I'd much rather the Lakers get in instead of the Jazz. Lakeshow has a better chance of knocking out any of the top 3 seeds than the Jazz which would help us on our path to the finals because there's no doubt we can kill the lakes off at any time.

Well you still should cheer for Utah to beat Memphis to help us out with the homecourt. I guess you're cheering for the lakers to beat Houston though.

When I last checked into the box score, brandon jennings was 1-11 from the field and 0-5 from deep. This was with like 3 minutes left in the game. Had he went 2-11, they would have won lol

lol wtf - robbed? (a) did you guys see the "foul" that even caused the bucks to take the lead? watch it if you havent then come back and say the bucks were robbed. (b) the nba doesnt give a **** about the nuggets or wanting them to finish ahead of the clippers. id love to hear why stern suddenly has any interest in that.

When has your team become important/feared? When other teams fans join your forum.

Seriously,,you don't think a 48 ft advantage to a 24 is not showing favoritism? The NBA is arranging the playoffs the way they want it and if you don't' believe that you have drunk the Miami/Laker kool aid.

Either way guys, if the Clips really wanted that 3rd seed they should have won the games they were supposed to win. Can't fault Denver for taking care of business even if the NBA is showing "favortism". I accepted playing Memphis with us having HCA and look forward to playing them although I'm sure they would rather not face us. Very Happy Let's end this on a high note and go into playoffs with momentum on our side.

its not. we attack the paint more than any other team (i think in nba history). its all we do. then you add to that the bucks shot 3 after 3 after 3. 35 attempts in all to only 14 for denver. the bucks arent going to get any fouls on those shots. (well ironically the only time they did was on the shot by ellis and that was an AWFUL call. so the bucks should have only had 23 fta)

why the hell would the nba want to "arrange" denver-warriors? they arent trying to help us - especially not last night. perhaps we are winning games for a different reason? Shocked

I think a denver GSW series would be rad! Houston will be good too, but vs GSW would be a lot of fun to watch

We control our destiny for homecourt! I wouldn't mind help from Memphis though. Plus that puts pressure on the lakers to beat Houston.

its a little late now but my preferences were houston (out of houston/gs) and clippers (out of lac/memphis). doesnt really matter now that we face golden state and you guys get the grizz. good luck in your series.
