NBA Playoffs and/or Lottery seeding roundup -- While you were sleeping April 1st, 2014

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

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

  • No one shot at me last night.

.

Wyws_-_favors_bad

  • POR @ LAL -- Lakers lost, duh.
  • GSW @ DAL -- Warriors won, on a late goaltend that wasn't called in overtime.

.

Wyws_-_favors_meh

  • HOU @ BKN -- Deron and company clinched the playoffs with a win last night

Movers and Shakers:

  1. The Lakers lost, but no teams really moved at all last night . . . except . . .
  2. for the Mavs who went from being tied for 7th down to 9th in one night.
  3. GSW has a stranglehold on the bottom of the West now.

Tonight's Action:

Last night was a dud, tonight is the thunderdome.

  • MIL @ MIA -- This one looks like a sure bet
  • CHA @ PHI -- I expect East player of the month Big Al to continue rolling here
  • CLE @ ORL -- This is a big game of two teams who don't win a lot
  • BOS @ WAS -- C's will look to get the L against the W's.
  • LAL @ SAC -- This is the big game of the night for us. Go Lakers!
  • DET @ IND -- Indy is in a tailspin
  • BKN @ NYK -- Battle of New York part 1 (they play again later on this month)
  • NOP @ DEN -- This is a battle of two tied teams, so interesting?
  • CHI @ ATL -- Can Paul Millsap beat Carlos Boozer?
  • MEM @ MIN -- Go Memphis, you may be one of our only hopes!
  • LAC @ PHX -- Go Phoenix, you may be one of our other only hopes!
  • GSW @ SAS -- Dubs cheated their way to a win last night, hope the Spurs knock their teeth out

GO Grizzlies / Suns GO!
