    Warriors hit 26 threes at 63%
    Lakers needed an umbrella

    pretty sure Warriors won the tie-breaker with the Lakers by winning tonight...meaning the Lakers have to finish one game better to have HCA over the Warriors. Huge loss for the Lakers and AD didn't play

    Ugh. Though I don't think that changes things in terms of the pick.

    don't make excuses for those Fakers. Another effencient night by LBJ squandered, just because Steph Curry couldn't miss (6-6 3pt). I ain't buying it, the Warriors suck. The Lakers need a team meeting, or fire the coach.

    well, what it would do is give the Warriors HCA in the first play-in game against the Lakers, and that would make them favored, by a decent margin. And if they won that game they'd face the winner of the Suns/Kings play-in and both of those teams have ass lately. I'd give at least even odds right now the Warriors survive the play-in and become 8th seed

    Right now, the Warriors have the 13th worst record and the Blazer pick would be 13th if GS loses the play-in (or even 12th). But they are only about 1 game and a couple of missteps from other teams from having the 18th worst record. If they advance into the playoffs, the pick could be 18th

    wasn't an excuse...was pointing out that depending on AD's health is a thin-ice proposition

    Gross. My idea was to take that pick and package both seconds to move up and grab the highest ceiling guy, ie Salaun.

    Or, use it to package with ours to move up and grab a guy like Sarr if we aren't in position to grab him ourselves.

    It would help if the league and the refs would hold Green accountable. It's insane the kid gloves they treat him with. Remember how they targeted Sheed and competed to see who could throw him out first?

    Just about an hour left in the season.

    If Warriors lose today, and Kings win (appears certain against us), GS loses one of playin the best the pick could be for us is #12 (if Chi/Atl winner makes playoffs).

    Guess there's also that couple percent chance Warriors lose playin and get top4 thus keeping the pick and we get nothing from them this off-season.

    If Warriors win today, Lakers lose, GS makes playoffs, GS gets worse draft pick from all coin flips, two team with better records get bumped from playoffs, the pick could drop all the way to 17th. Though that is many more unlikely outcomes and coin flips all going one way.

    Well let's see where it ends up, if it's 12th that will be pretty awesome from where we expected at the Dame trade. Most projected it in the 20s. It's not like 10th of 15 west spots is high in the standings.

    Yeah it looked much better in December before we got even half way through the season.... but with zero incentive for GS to lose themselves always was likely 4-5 teams would get injured and give up on the season, semi tank, etc and fall below them.

    Actually we could ultimately be pretty lucky the Warriors didn't win just 3 more games as the difference from playin/lottery to pick #20 is very thin.

    Wouldn't losing in the play-in just make GS a lottery team thus making them eligible for a pick higher than 12?

    If the pick moves up to top4 in the lottery the pick is protected and GS keeps it. If it's 12th going into the lottery it can only move into top4, or stay at 12th or worse. It couldn't move up to 5-11.

    Now I'm just interested in the Warriors losing in the play-in and the Bulls or Hawks making the playoffs and pushing our pick to 12.

    Will need Philly to be the one to fall out of playoffs, as well as Kings make playoffs. Otherwise there will be coin flip(s) for #12.

    So I guess 12th pick is still in play. On other side worse the pick could drop to is 16th.

    If GS makes playoffs the pick would be 15th, maybe 16th, but guaranteed we'd get it. If they miss playoffs there's that ~5% chance they get top4 and keep it.

    I'm personally rooting for Warriors to miss the playoffs, and land the number 4 pick. Would rather have their pick next season.
