Important games tonight:

Nets @ 76ers
Cavs @ Wizards (John Wall suspended)
Heat @ TimberWolves
Nuggets @ Kings

That John Wall suspension may actually end up affecting us, especially if Washington loses that one, as it looks like Cleveland won't "catch" us, but the Wizards do have a chance to.

What's the best possible(in terms of losses lol) place we could get mathematically in the standings? Do we have a shot at the 3rd last spot?

The "worst" we could do, would be the worst team overall. That would take us losing all of our games, and Cleveland winning at least 5 of their last 8 games. Highly unlikely, seeing as though they've only won 15 all year, on top of that, we'd have to hope for Minnesota to win at least 3 more, and Washington to win 2 more.

Realistically, Sacramento is one game ahead of us, and Washington is 2 games behind us, those are really the only teams we have to watch (unless we get hot and catch New Jersey).

I think Washington and Sacramento are the only teams to watch closely if you want to make it simple. Sacramento is just ahead of us, and Washington is just behind us. So the Raptors need to keep losing and have Washington win some more, and we can look at the 3rd worst record and a pretty good shot at the first pick.

Without John Wall, Washington still won, but besides that...

Nets lost
Wolves lost
Kings lost

You'll have to read a little further back in the post. If ye seek, ye shall find.



Important games:


Raptors @ Bulls
T'Wolves @ Grizzlies


Bulls are on the second game of a back to back - I wonder if Noah comes back for this one.

What pick will we be slated to get before the lottery? What pick will we actually get?

We'll be slated 4th, but we'll end up with the 2nd. Cleveland will end up with #1.

Welcome to David Stern's NBA.

Raps lost...
T'Wolves lost...

and the "battle" is on.

At least we're competing in some of the games - that's all I would like to see from here to the end of the season.
