The Lakers.

10 of their last 15 are at home, including their next 6 in a row. Meanwhile, Dallas still has a 6 game roadie, including a game at LAL in the middle of that.

LA is also the better team right now.

I've said it before, I don't really think it even matters too much for LA. Dallas needs it more for sure, they need to have all the advantages they can get.

But it comes down to whether LA wants it or not. We're seeing some injuries with the Celtics, and if LA wants to push for #2 I think they can get it, but I also think that if they're healthy, HCA or not in any series, it'll be tough to beat them 4 out of 7 games.

Lakers. They're rolling right now and have a favorable schedule to end the season.

Plus they're just plain better than Dallas.

Lakers are playing amazing basketball at this point. And I have them beating Dallas in their next meeting in Los Angeles, so that settles the #2 seed.

Dallas is a great on the road though... However, if you base it on how both teams have been playing lately, it seems like the Lakers are going to get he 2nd seed... I still voted for the Mavs... I sure hope they can finish strong...

Don't the Lakers have to get the 2 seed. Seeds 1 through 3 go to divison winners even if Mavs have a better record, Lakers get the 2 seed.

Division winners are guaranteed the top 4 spots. The top 4 seeds = 3 divisional winners, and one other team with the best record.

Seriously, I'd laugh my *** off if they fall to the 3rd seed and end up with Portland who could pull a GSW on them

Let's change this thread to "Who's going to get the 3 seed: Dallas or OKC?".
