NBA Playoffs and/or Lottery seeding roundup -- While you were sleeping April 3rd, 2014

Mpu Dinani

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

  • DAL @ LAC -- The Mavs won a game! Imagine that! They almost blew it, but they held on for a key win. And as a result, they are only 1.5 games behind GSW, if only they beat them the other night . . .

.

Wyws_-_favors_bad

  • Nothing? Spurs lost? Does that matter to them though?

.

Wyws_-_favors_meh

  • The schedule was "Meh", only two games

Movers and Shakers:

  1. Dallas moved from 9th to 7th.

Tonight's Action:

Yep. 19 of the 20 teams are playing tonight. So I'll be busy up waiting for these scores.

  • MIL @ CHI -- Bulls should win, right?
  • PHi @ BOS -- Expect Boston to win at least one of the two games they have remaining against Philly, if not both. First one tonight.
  • ORL @ CHA -- Big Al trying to make the All-NBA team this year. He may do just that if he can pound Orlando.
  • NOP @ UTA -- Utah is probably going to win tonight, you know, just because.
  • DAL @ LAL -- Mavs tired, and playing some crazy games. LAL is trash this year. So we'll see a game that means a lot to Jazz fans.
  • SAC @ GSW -- Vivek's new team against his old team.
  • DET @ BKN -- Meh? Yes yes, this game is Meh.
  • CLE @ ATL -- These two teams aren't really fun to watch. I blame Mike Brown.
  • WAS @ NYK -- Are the Knicks for real? We'll see.
  • DEN @ MEM -- With the way these teams are playing, Memphis could lose this one. You never know with that team.
  • MIN @ MIA -- I bet the Wolves players will enjoy the weather there better than their home weather.
  • PHX @ POR -- Big game for the Jazz. Well, I mean the Suns, but still. I hate Bonzi Wells and Isiah Rider.

There are too many games happening tonight!!!
