The West is really interesting with only two games left. Tonight will decide a lot of things, but I'm going to be paying especially close attention to the Denver and Houston games. It will be hilarious to me if the Jazz beat the Nuggets and the Rockets beat OKC, and Denver's decision to tank that second game against Portland backfires on them. On the flip side, if Houston loses to the Thunder, that would be no bueno...

yeah I super curious how much effort the Jazz put into this game. Mostly because if the Rockets win the Jazz can't fall below 5 anyways, but if the Rockets lose then the Jazz might want to fall to six to avoid the Rockets. I think its moot though the Rockets are playing so well right now.

Denver played 6 games in 9 days. Jokic has been play 36 minutes which is a ton. Millsap has had hip problems. Murray has been battling an ankle injury.

Doesnít matter if we play Houston home or on the road if we make it that far itís probably 5 games, maybe 6 at the most.

The Rockets aren't choking and the Jokic has given the Nuggets nothing. Pathetic effort.

At the end of the day, there was no way the Nuggets would beat the Rockets. With home court it would probably be a 6 game series whereas now it will likely be a sweep or 5 games.

That's one series where, barring injuries, you can bet the house.

Jokic just put up one of the most pathetic efforts of his career in a very critical game for the Nuggets.

16 minutes, 1-6 2 points and 6 fouls.

Unless the Thunder do something special here, they'll drop down to a 3 seed...

He had a dud, but **** Where has Barton been for the last 2 months. Dude is shooting 38 percent and 10 points a game. For being an offensive player that doesnít bring much defensively overall is killing us. Start Craig over that guy.

The Nuggets have to be the luckiest team ever.

Because now all they have to do is beat the Twolves tomorrow at home, and if the Blazers win tonight (currently up 8) and then beat the Kings tomorrow, the Rockets will be the 4th seed.

Can't believe it. Choke job. Denver gift-wrapped them the 2 seed, and they blew it and will now get Golden State in the second round (assuming they can get past Utah). Can't believe the regular season ended like this...

I don't wanna get too excited though.

Because the Nuggets have played really poorly as of late, they can absolutely lose to the Twolves tomorrow.

If Jokic is the legend that I know he is, he'll bounce back from the terrible game and carry the Nuggets tomorrow.

But If the Nuggets lose... **** me I'm not watching the playoffs lol.

Steven Adams played a MAJOR part in winning that game. 8 O rebounds in a game where his team won by 1.

Do Rockets fans still like Austin Rivers? He seems to go invisible in every big game.

Heís not a major part of the rotation and is usually the last option on offense. I think heís fine in his role.

I might rather have the four seed than the three. Iíd rather play the Jazz first round than the Thunder.

Plus I like the idea of facing the Warriors in the second round.

The Nuggets and Blazers control their own destiny tomorrow. Both have winnable games at home against teams not in the playoffs.

its interesting that if the Blazers feel the same and OKC wins that they might rest their starters to play the Jazz instead. it means if they win they play the Warriors the next round, but I don't think that honestly they should be worrying about anything then trying to win a series. I think the Jazz are flat out better then OKC, but if you would rather avoid PG and westbrook it makes some sense.

Yeah, it's amazing that a second year player that's expected to be the #1 option on a playoff team and spent the start the off-season in a walking boot took a bit to adjust to every team throwing their best shot at him. Everybody seems to wanna give the young guys time to grow (here's looking at you MTM) but not with Mitchell. And I'm still trying to figure out how a guy who's not even an All-Star so overrated? Who exactly is overrating him?
