While you were sleeping April 8th

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

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-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 4 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 8th:

AllThatAmar

LAC jumped over UTA


GOOD NEWS!

NBA: Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Nothing good happened last night.


“Meh” NEWS!

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The top three seeds are all locked up, and none of this matters anymore. But KD being back for GSW sucks, because he’ll probably play on Monday against UTA.


BAD NEWS!

NBA: Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

So UTA losing is bad. LAC winning is worse. They flip-flop, and now UTA no longer has home-court advantage. Worst still? the SAS loss made their coach Gregg Popovich proclaim that he’s not resting guys anymore because of their bad play. UTA hosts SAS in two games.


Tonight’s Games:

None of these games matter for the Jazz now, who can’t be #3 or above, nor can they be #6 or below.
