While you were sleeping March 4th

A quick look at what happened last night in the Western Conference #PlayoffPush

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Trade Deadline is over. Teams have waived and signed players. We know which teams are tanking, and we know which teams are playing for the post season. It’s March, so our feature “While you were sleeping...” returns! So let’s get to it!

The Mavs and Wolves switched spots, but they are on the outside of the playoffs looking in. There were a couple of good games last night, most of it went against our team.


Good news!

Memphis losing is great, because they own the tie-breaker with Utah.


San Antonio is in a different league, if they get enough wins now they may not go for the wins against the Jazz (2 games left) late in the season. Denver losing sucks, because you want them to put some distance between them and Portland because we want Portland to be tanking when they play the Jazz (2 games left).

Bad News!

Houston winning isn’t good either, even if it’s good news that Memphis lost. Worse still, Los Angeles won, making it only a 1.0 game difference between them and Utah.

Tonight’s Action:

  • [1] GSW vs NYK - who cares?
  • [4] UTA @ [10] SAC - gotta win this one
  • [7] OKC @ [11] DAL - let’s go Dallas!
  • [13] NOP @ [15] LAL - hope this game goes to OT, or 5 OT, UTA plays NOP tomorrow
  • [14] PHX vs BOS - This is a long road trip for the Celtics.

Tonight’s game needs to be a blowout early so our dudes can get some rest. We’ve all seen that they go out of their way to play poorly at home if even a little bit tired.
