The Clippers will end up playing the Warriors.

When we beat them in the playoffs, I think it'll be a big motivation boost for the team.

Why did they say Nick Young leads the league in points off the bench? Does Jamal not lead the league?

I actually like that GS won, so maybe they can move on to the 5th seed and we can battle the the Blazers in the POs? Wouldn't that be nice?

Plus Brooklyn just helped pad out 3rd seed standing with a win over Houston, that gives us a lil cushion to play without Blake...WHEW!

Damn, that is very close. If portland wins against GSW 1 time, they will end up at 5.

If GSW beat San Antonio , they will earn the 5th seed.

GSW might play 7-2 the rest of the games if they will lose against Portland and San Antonio.

Portland 4-2

Houston 6-3

Houston 55 -27

Portland 53 - 29

GSW 52 - 30

GSW or Portland.................who will we play? I reckon it will be the Warriors.

In the vid above Shaq and the guys discuss weather GS would rather play the Clips or the Rockets in the PO's.

This is getting ridiculous. There are two reasons to root for other teams:

  1. Help yourself move up. Were are practically stuck at 3.

2.IF you are a lower seed and trying to position yourself against the perceived "weak" higher seed in hopes of knocking them off.

We are a top 3 seed our focus should be second round and on. Yes the west is stacked, it has been the past 10 years. The first round will be tough no matter who we face but we are better than whoever we face. You guys are putting to much energy in the first round.

conference records settle 2-2s

Golden state warriors 2-2 vs Memphis, 3-1 vs Dallas, 2-2 vs phoenix

memphis 2-2 vs GSW, 3-0 vs Dallas(one remaining matchup), 3-0 vs Phoenix(one remaining matchup)

dallas 1-3 vs GSW, 0-3 vs Memphis (one remaining matchup), 1-1 vs Phoenix (one matchup remaining)

phoenix 2-2 vs GSW, 0-3 vs Memphis (one matchup remaining), 1-1 vs Dallas (one matchup remaining)

will update 3 way as they become more realistic and pertinent.

I'm rooting for any team the plays against Memphis and Portland.

That Memphis don't make playoffs and Portland drops to the 6th seed

Memphis, Suns and Dallas are all on exactly the same record right now. The race down there is tight.

OKC @Houston is a big Friday game, especially if SA beats OKC tonight.

We need to beat OKC next Wednesday if we're gonna grab #2 spot.

Hope Miami loses some games but looks like they have an easy schedule.....

Go Spurs tonight!!

Spurs are looking scary good. Tonight they are on a B2B but you figure they want to send a message...

Essentially this, if we want that 2nd seed we have to take it, we can't solely just rely on other teams to do the job for us

Sad thing is even if we win out we have to hope the Thunder lose two more times.

If we do not get the 2 seed, the Denver Foye game, Portland OT, Pelicans, and Warriors Xmas game will haunt us.

Anyone else seeing the calls RefKC's getting? Bubble Boy was 1-7 before the refs swooped in and put Kawhi in foul trouble.

Every team can say that. We loss a lot more winnable games than that. Its kind of pointless to dwell on one in particular.

We've already won in OKC this year. Steal one of the first two, and there's your home court. They'd soil their panties if we brought it back to LA with a split.

The more I watch RefKC, the more convinced I am that we can beat those bitches. Bubble Boy and Westbrick are just chuckers and Brooks is the new VDN.

I am finally getting to see refs go in favor of OKC when they aren't against the Clippers. It looks bad. We are a tough bunch to go through this

They're always in favor of OKC no matter the opponent.

Yes I call them the OKC refs. They get favorable calls against any team including the Heat.

This sucks. Feels like its kind of pointless to even win RS games at this point. No chance to catch the Thunder at this rate. Its not like we will drop to 4th unless we don't try at all.

Houston beats RefKC... this means we still have a slim chance at the two seed, right?

But I really wanted is for the blazers to keep losing so we could match up with them... i don't like playing GSW or MEM in the first round not because i feared that we might lose to them but i fear that blake and Dj would be bang up playing way to physical in the first round of the playoffs.

Oh those ref's, they make it so hard on us, lol.

We have as much of a chance of catching OKC, as the Rockets have of catching us.

We have an amazing chance at the 2nd seed if Kevin Durant decides to keep chunking just to keep his streak alive. If Butler keeps making boneheaded plays and the Refs do not give Durant....

Don't look now, but those dubs are only one loss behind Portland and currently hold the tie with one more to play.

Some on here want to rest our starters that last game against Portland. That may factor into our playoff opponent. The Clips should not throw that game and be like Dallas and then get upset. That would be terrible lol

Durant headbutting his defender apparently counts as a foul on the Suns. Pathetic how much ref slurpage Bubble Boy gets. It was pretty revealing how mediocre and frustrated Bubble Boy looked against Houston when they weren't giving him his usual BS rip-through calls for once.
