NBA Playoffs and/or Lottery seeding roundup -- While you were sleeping April 9th, 2014

Sam Greenwood

All of the good, bad, and meh things that happened in the races we care about.

So now that we're tracking both the playoffs (the usual) and the lotto (the new) we have an expanded "While you were sleeping" schedule to track. Here was all the action from last night:

Wyws_-_favors_good

  • BKN @ ORL -- Orlando won, crazy.
  • MIA @ MEM -- Memphis also won? What's up with the Heat these days?
  • PHX @ NOP -- Phoenix won, so that's good.

.

Wyws_-_favors_bad

  • BOS @ ATL -- Boston lost, and remain 1.0 games ahead of Utah
  • SAC @ POR -- Sacramento lost, and remain 2.5 games behind Utah

.

Wyws_-_favors_meh

  • IND @ MIL --Pacers won, duh.
  • PHI @ TOR -- Raptors, who'd thunk it?
  • DET @ CLE -- Detroit lost, so Ohio gets to keep Toledo. Bah-humbug.
  • HOU @ DEN -- Rockets lost, wat.
  • CHI @ MIN -- Bulls won, Minny is perpetually in this crazy zone of nowhere.

Movers and Shakers:

  1. No one changed spots, again
  2. Orlando and Boston are now tied for #3. Good thing we beat Orlando that one time . . .
  3. Somehow WAS keeps tanking, and are now down to #7 in the East, and CHA and BKN have gone up in the East.

So much basketball tonight.

Two games? Sheesh. I guess I'll get some reading done tonight.
