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

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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

  • The Suns beat the Thunder, which is awesome. The Warriors were idle, so they are now only 1.5 games from them.

Tonight's Action:

Tonight 16 of the 20 teams we track are in action.

Because GSW seems to have an easy game it will be up to DAL and MEM to keep up with them. DAL is 2.0 games back, and MEM is 3.0 games back. And they both play tough teams tonight. Yikes.

And well, our Jazz are in action and tonight's game is going to be a lot of fun if you enjoy watching people take shots from 19-20 feet.
