While you were sleeping April 7th

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

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 5 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 7th:


Well, UTA clinched the division, and MIN and SAC leapfrogged again.

With this SAS win it only gives them another win that they don’t need, all-in-all setting them up for really resting a lot in game 82 #SASatUTA. UTA beating MIN on the same night as PHX beating OKC = division title for our guys. WOO! SAC losing to LAL is great because it possibly allows LAL fewer chances to keep their lotto pick.

“Meh” NEWS!

None of these games mean anything to UTA.

Nothing bad happened last night!

Tonight’s Games:

  • [1] Golden State Warriors vs. the [10] New Orleans Pelicans: It would be cool of Boogie Cousins injuries their entire team in a brawl.

  • [4] Utah Jazz @ the [8] Portland Trail Blazers: MUST WIN GAME! GET TO 50!

Let’s go Jazz! Let’s go Spurs!
