    I didn’t see the game, but I have more faith in Houston turning on the tank than Golden State suddenly becoming a le contender or even good team again. But who knows, it’s a weird season.

    Nah, it was just a good team mopping up a loser.

    yeah i mean i guess leaping houston would be cool, but considering the bottom 3 have identical odds at landing the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th picks, the value is pretty small
    Agreed - was just an aside. Itís more about CHA having a lead so big the game doesnt matter for SA finishing in bottom 3. IF thats the case we can go ahead and root for HOU and less meaningful stuff

    Hornets were down massive in the first quarter. This suggests they don't intend to just fall down. May be some pride in keeping that 4th rather than 3rd.
    And yet where was that pride the 1st 65 games? Suddenly develops with 10 games to go as they get within a game of the Spurs?

    This season does not pass the smell test for a lot of games.
    Houston on obvious tank, yet they get swept by the Spurs?
    Next they pull out a last second win when an L was guaranteed.

    still have a 4 game cushion with charlotte (we have 1 more game left than they do)

    if we end up with the same record, is the tiebreaker always a coin flip, or do they consider things like H2H the way the NFL does (charlotte beat us twice)

    We need any combination of 6 Hornets wins and Spurs losses to secure our spot.

    7. If we lose 6, and Charlotte loses all of theirs, it’s tie. Don’t want that.

    So the Spurs have an "unmagic number" of 7 to get the best odds (tied with 2 others) for the top pick or pick #2.

    Sounds good.

    Unfortunately, the Rockets couldn't pull it off. I'm honestly surprised they kept it close tonight.

    Pistons, Hornets, and Rockets all play tonight...on the road hoping at least one of them can pull out a W. Mavs havent looked great so Hornets might have a shot at the upset. Anyone know if Luka/Kyrie are playing?

    9 games to go, 3 games behind Detroit, 1 game behind Houston, and 4 games ahead of Charlotte. Honestly I think we've got no. 3 pretty much wrapped up, which is the main thing. However, I'd like to see us tie for no. 2 with Houston which would improve our chances at no. 5 if we don't land a top 4 pick, and given both our schedules it's not out of the question:

    Spurs playing a crappy WAS without Kuz or Beal…spurs most likely to win id say but hopefully KP can carry the load and Sa is missing Collins who arguably is most important guy at the moment all factors considered

    If SA loses tonight I think there’s a fair shot HOU can leap them. Tonight is one of most on paper winnable games for SA. Lose this and I think SA has 2 “on paper” wins left (UTA POR maybe MIN) & HOU has potentially 3 (DET CHA WAS)

    Spurs lost hornets won. Since lamelo went down spurs have exactly one more win than Charlotte

    Spurs have definitely benched and sat guys way more than I anticipated - Props

    Especially the games where both Collins and Sochan are out. They are winning players and we have zero depth there so its a double whammy every time they sit.

    If Spurs can survive not winning the UTA game, I think they lose the next 5. That would give (although not a huge deal) HOU a legit shot to jump or at least tie SA IMO

    Spurs are definitely locked into bottom 3 which is phenomenal so I dont really care. But UTA is the most winnable game (Home and worst team of the bunch) out of next 5 so losing that one would likely have HOU tied with SA with 3 games left.

    Today's results reinforce the idea that no. 3 (and thus best possible odds at Wemby) is already a done deal. As for no. 2, we need to play both Portland and Utah, and they're both on tanking mode, so we should win at least one of those 2 if not both. That would mean Houston should win 2-3 games at least for us to tie no. 2.

    Great news is our last game, Dallas, is fighting for their lives. HOU plays WAS who arent that good so if we are tied going into that game like our chances to be 2nd worst record (or up for a coin flip to decide with same record). Im not worried about that too much honestly though.

    To be honest, after watching Brandon Miller and Jarace Walker today, picking 5, 6 or 7 doesn't seem like a huge deal, which is ultimately what is being decided if we finish 2nd or 3rd worst (odds at those spots).

    Yup…I’m really not worried. It’s more “whatever happens, happens” scenario for me
