    I say it’s the current top 8 seeds. What say you? Will Utah or New Orleans steal a spot? From whom? What about Sacramento, Dallas, Memphis, or Minnesota?

    Warriors, Nuggets, Spurs, Blazers, Jazz, Lakers (though I hate typing that), Rockets, Pelicans?

    The western conference has so much talent it's incredible.

    No OKC? I’d be good with that! Yes it’s incredible.

    To be honest I was having a really hard time. They'll probably get in but I didn't want the Lakers, Rockets and OKC in there because that's just terrible lol.

    Yeah Jazz and Pelicans seem like good candidates to make it along with the current 8.
    It will come down to key injuries.

    Interesting that nobody in this thread has the Clippers in the playoffs. Are we all convinced that they're just smoke and mirrors? Are we predicting an injury? I mean, with Harris, Gallo, Williams, Harrell, SGA all able to get 20 on any given night, they're very balanced. They're basically tied with us for 4th in the conference. So why does nobody believe in them? (And yes, I'm asking myself too...)

    Just looked at their upcoming schedule. 19 games in 34 days between now and the break, including both a 4-game and a 6-game road trip. Going better than .500 over that stretch will be tough.
