So it has come to this...we now have to base our chances of MAKING the playoffs based on other teams wins and losses so I thought it would be an interesting thread where we can see who we need to win or lose on a given night that will help us. Currently the standings and games back are as follows as of 2/23/2012

  1. OKC -

  2. Spurs 3.5

  3. Lakers 6

  4. Dallas 8.5

  5. Memphis 9

  6. Clippers 9

  7. Denver 9

  8. Houston 9.5

  9. Utah 10

Ill stop it at those for now. Anyways for tonight's games we have....

Wolves @ OKC..Sort of a wash but lets go OKC. The less teams nipping at our heels the better

Dallas @ San Antonio....For sure want Spurs to win this one. We will then be in a 4 way tie for.

Portland @ Lakers.... I was surprised and happy the Blazers won last night against Memphis so lets hope they can do it again against the lakers!

Denver @ Uath...this one is bit more tricky....But you have to go with Utah on this one although it will move Utah in the playoffs and Denver out, but the more shifting the better...as long as we are not the ones doing the shifting.

Yeah, maybe I'm giving more significance that it deserves, but I really think a quality win over Memphis could start the team down the track of getting their mo-jo back. An easy win over a good team in an important game, which we haven't had in a while, will have the team feeling some of the good vibes from early in the season. However, I am not counting on it by any means.

The fact that someone actually started this thread is sad as F**K.

I grew up in L A and always had to watch the other teams highlights instead of our own(For CLIPPER games) so F**k that I dont want us going back to that(Those La times papers that had the Clipper game promo's but with the other stars to go see,Fox sports/prime ticket whatever the F**k channel it use to be on use to also show the other teams dunk highlights instead of our own teams).

IF you root for other teams as well I don't consider you a fan of your team Period. Hopefully this means all the front runners will stop rooting for us 2 and we wil start tearing sh*t up again watch

I don't think that's going to happen, but we can hope. I'll settle for a double-OT dogfight as long as we get the 'W'. That's a full game on Memphis AND the tiebreaker if it comes to that.

Ok good...so make sure you don't watch or follow what memphis does or what other teams do that are fighting for position in the playoffs. Maybe it is because clippers fan are not use to the fact that there are things called playoff postions. So here goes...

In the NBA the top 8 teams from each conference goes to a playoff. A playoff series is a series of games, 7 to be exact. So basically what happens is the number 1 seed plays the 8th seed, 2 plays 7, 3 plays 6, and 4 plays 5th seed. There are 3 playoff rounds for each conference and then the top team from the West plays the top team from the East.

So you see guys it is important to follow other teams positions so they can win or lose and that will impact how the clippers will be seeded. It is very simple.

"Wait ClipperAndrew are you saying that if the certain teams lose tonight that will help the clippers in the playoff picture?"

Yes...yes I am. So sure root for the clippers every time they get on the court, I know I do...all I am suggesting is that we are so f*&King close to even losing a playoff seed that we need to root and get help from other teams.

@ClippersAndrew

I understand about all these playoff position, but we should worry about ourself here. Beside to be the best, you got to beat the best. All we could do now, its just win. Dont' get defensive here.

sorry, it was mostly that other guys post that pissed me off. I apologize for being condescending. Trust me I agree totally with you, but it is still important to see how the other teams are playing. If we lose tomorrow and they win, we will be out of the playoffs. Once we are out it will be devastating for this team and I do not think we would be able to recover.

No worries, all forgiven. This is what make tommorow game very important. I feel like this will be the turning point of the season if the Clippers win. If we lose, I don't know what to say.

Apostle has always been respectful to everyone. I know he didn't mean what you said. He was defending his love for his Clippers. Everyone needs to chill and stop calling each other names. Being called an idiot is uncalled for an unacceptable.

Everyone in here needs to stop with the name calling.

So I am with apostle on this.

It's a good thread Andrew. With only a game and a half between #4 and #10, other teams' results are VERY significant.

hopefully Utah will get the win tonight.

If we can keep the 6th seed and the Lakers stay 3rd I would be happy with that first round matchup. I think playing the Lakers in the first round would be a matchup that would motivate our squad whether VDN is still coach or not. Our guys will want to play thier hearts out against the Lakers. None of the other western conference playoff teams are potetial rivals in the same respect as the Lakers. Doubt we would beat the Spurs or Thunder in the first round in the 7th or 8th seed. We need to play hard to keep the 6th seed or move up.

Ok I over reacted by calling you an idiot and for that i apologize. I just did not like the way you responded to my original thread...a thread I think is pretty important with all things considering.

but the good news is dallas, twolves, and denver lost.

Lets hope the blazers can pull out a win. I should mention the that the Suns won and are getting closer to us. The West 4-8th seed is the most competitive i have ever seen it.

So the team takes a day off and moves a notch higher in the standings...

Any chance we can keep doing that or do we actually HAVE to play the last 19?

Agreed to you all. Enough with the name calling and bashing..lets just all join together and be as positive as we can for our team for tomorrow is the biggest game of the season for us hands down. If we win the monkey on our back dies (or at least gets very very ill) or if we lose we will have a gorilla on our backs and things will be near as close to disaster mode, if not full on disaster mode, as we can get. Memphis is a team we can possibly play in the playoffs. We need to put everything to side and join as a team to get this win. I believe we can do it.

Tomorrows game...

Dallas @ Houston....Not really sure on this one because if Dallas loses they fall out of a tie with us, but Houston will then be tied with us. The best scenario is Clippers win and Houston wins, that will break the tie.

Lets get em Clips!

Ok guys just to catch us up, as of today we are tied for 4th with Dallas. 2.5 games behind the lakers and only 1.5 games ahead of the 8th playoff spot team Denver. Getting home court advantage in the playoffs is so very very important for this team. So who do we want to win today....

Denver @ Toronto.....Lets see if the Raps can take this one. Denver hasn't been playing very well as of late but are still a dangerous team who is very well coached.

Utah @ Boston...I think the old timers at the TD Garden will take this one...lets hope.

San Antino @ Sac Town....This game doesn't mean anything to us really, but it will be nice to see if the kids in my states capital can take out Timmy D and the Spurs.

Tomorrows games are a bit more important regarding the Clips..especially

Dallas @ Miami....If we win tonight we will be half game over the Mavs (so let's hope we do) and if the Mavs lose tomorrow they will be a full game behind us. Again can't stress how important home court will be in the playoffs.

Lakers @ OKC....Let's hope KD and the boys can take this one...although yes I am a Laker fan as well (Clippers number 1, Lakers number 2) I want OKC to take this so Clippers will be close to taking that coveted Pacific Division Title.

These two games tomorrow will be very fun to watch and the Miami game will be just as important to us as us winning tonight.

LETS GO CLIPPERS!

Nice comeback by OKC against LAL. Its kind of ridiculous how fast Westbrook is. Don't get me wrong, I'd take CP3 over him any day, but Westbrook's athleticism is crazy.
