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

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

This is it, Utah Jazz fans. Our guys have climbed that mountain and are going to be in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. But they still have a chance to make their own destiny with who they end up facing in the first round. The Jazz can into Playoffs, but that #PlayoffPush is still going on as there are only 3 more nights in the 2016-2017 NBA Regular season. There were a bunch of games last night, and a bunch more tonight. So let’s look at what happened “While you were sleeping,” on April 9th:

POR clinched, DEN eliminated.


GOOD News!

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

This increases the chances of LAL losing their draft pick. Hooray!


“Meh” News!

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Denver Nuggets Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

None of this matters now, the OKC win eliminates DEN. It was a fun night of basketball, but nothing that made the lives of UTA fans easier.


BAD News!

Nothing bad happened last night, unlike the night before.


Tonight’s Games:

Six of the eight West playoff teams are playing tonight, and they are playing one another. If this was two weeks ago this would be a bigger deal. As it stands right now only two teams don’t have their seed clinched: LAC and UTA.
