Wyws_-_favors_good

  • The Warriors LOST! Who cares what else happened?
  • The Suns won, which in conjunction with the GSW loss means there's only 0.5 games between the two
  • The Jazz lost, so we at least kept step with the losing Knicks, only 0.5 games behind them

.

Wyws_-_favors_bad

  • The Mavericks lost, which is bad because they didn't get a chance to capitalize on the Dubs losing to the Raptors
  • The Knicks lost, but what can you really expect of them, right?

.

Wyws_-_favors_meh

  • The 76ers lost to the Magic, Philly is in an entirely different league when it comes to tanking
  • The Bobcats lost to the Thunder, somehow they're still #7 in the East.

.

Tonight's Action:

There are only a few games that matter tonight.

  • The Bucks host the Jazz!
  • The Kings host the Pelicans
  • The Lakers visit the Trail Blazers
  • The Knicks visit the Pistons
  • The Bobcats visit the Heat
  • The Nets host the red hot Bulls
  • The Timberwolves visit the Nuggets
  • and the Grizzlies visit the Wizards

At the very least if Memphis wins then that helps us out with the (futile?) hope that GSW drops into the lotto.
