    It wouldn't be hard for them to achieve it either... OKC's prime target is to steal the pick from the Sixers, if they can do it from the 6th spot, they will fight to keep it, but if it will require losing another spot and dropping 7th, they'll then let Denver pass over.

    The Blazers are healthy after a long time and clearly have a better roster than last season, but they also have to prove they are better on the court and they'll be under pressure given the "do or die" nature of the game.

    The Gizzlies are an upcoming force and will fight hard, but they are still very young and have lots of time ahead of them to prove things. Pelicans, Grizzlies and the Thunder in the West and the Hornets with the Wizards in the East, will continuously improve for each and every next season that follows for many years to come.

    From the highlights, looks like LAL and LAC was an exciting finish, bummed I missed it.

    Crazy to me how we were going to end the season with one of the easiest schedules in the league and now we have the hardest in the bubble. Starting the bubble off with 3 games in 4 nights and of course the Celtics on the last night because we always play them on the 2nd night of a back to back

    Bro those first 4 games are brutal, holy cow!

    But long as the 76ers don't slide into 5th, that's actually not a bad spot to be, all things considered.

    Magic Vs Nets shortly, in a game that the winner gains a huge advantage for a place in the playoffs.

    it's not "the hardest in the bubble", it rather is "as hard as anyone else in the bubble", the idea behind it is obviously to get the seeding as fair as possible with respect to the real power of a team as of today and therefore to maximise the excitement during the playoffs.

    Uhhh, no.

    There's literally SOS for these 8 seeding games and of the 22 teams, the Heat have the hardest schedule based upon opponents and days between games.

    I think that after what is about to be a blow up, it is safe to assume that theMagic will take the 7th seed in the East and the Nets will have to fight with the Wizards as to decide who packs early out of the bubble and who gets blown out by the Bucks a week later.

    In the mean time, the Grizzlies vs. Blazers has started in what is expected to be one of the most decisive games of the tournament.

    Blazers with an 8 point lead at the half, show that they mean business.

    The Suns lead Wizards with 15pts at the half. Nets and Wizards clearly seem to be the weakest teams in the East but it the tournament too.

    Bucks vs. Celtics follows in an hour in a very interesting match up.

    Blazers win it in O/T and retain in full their chances to qualify after another amazing game against an equally competitive opponent.

    Why couldn't he do this on the Rockets and Thunder?

    Bucks 6pts ahead of the Celtics in a game where much like the LAL vs. LAC, the Bucks are trying to make a declaration while the Cs want to win in order to stay clear from the 4th seed.

    Both teams don't look fully ready yet, while the Bucks are additionally without their starting PG in Bledsoe and 3&D wing Pat Connaughton who both came in Orlando late due to having being tested positive before and aren't in game shape yet.
