    I think they are ripe for first round upset.

    The winning streak ain’t coming. If you can’t win a must win game against Phoenix, you’re cooked.

    What about when you blow a huge lead in the 4th on the road to the lowly Mavs? Season over?

    I know you're just messing with king even though he can't see your post and that loss could loom big in the standings when all is said and done but the fact that game was our only blown 4th quarter lead this season makes it a little easier to brush off. If it becomes a trend like in previous seasons then I'll be more concerned about it.

    That was a bad loss for sure but Dallas looks to have some serious weapons to develop aNd could be really good in a few years with the right role player transitions. The rookie and portzingis are a hell of a young duo to build around.
    Id take them over what Phoenix has in a heartbeat.

    You would think, but I could totally see them winning their next 3.

    I will admit... After watching the Red Sox and Pafs win this does give me a deep satisfaction.

    Can we still catch the Nuggets for #2 seed? Only 3 games back?
    How tougher is their schedule compared to ours?

    Personally, I no longer give a damn about playoff seeding until they can win a playoff series after what happened last.......you get the drill.

    Trae Young ejected for starring down Dunn after hitting a deep three (2nd tech of the game). Can't believe he got a tech for it while Dramond continues to get away with his junk.

    The hell if I know. The only reason I even make a guess is because there is usually a contest of some kind. My NFL projections are even worse.
