    Crazy to see SA this low. I wonder if Lakers have a chance at passing them.

    These posts would be great to have all in one thread. If only someone would've started an "Around the NBA" for March or one about the playoff chase.

    Texas Turncoat sounds like a wrestling move.

    Atlanta actually plays decently at home and OKC is on the second night of a back to back... that game could be interesting.

    I did not know this. One of my black friends (I have many, you know!) had an aunt who we called TeeTee. Or maybe TiTi. Or maybe TT.

    Rudy Gay has never been on a team that has made the playoffs.

    Denver was the only 3-10 team to drop a game last night, which puts them back in the 10 spot for now. Tonight is the odd night where none of the 8 teams play (there's another on 3/31). When I get into the office this morning, I'll post the graphic containing al the games for the next 15 days. Some interesting stuff in there.

    Some notes:
    • Blazers, Thunder, Clippers, and Spurs all have 4 games in the next 15 days against other 3-8 teams. Jazz and Nuggets, by contrast, only have 1 such game each.
    • At least 6 of 8 teams will be in action on the same night four separate times in this stretch, on 3/15 (6), 3/20 (6), 3/23 (7), and 3/30 (7).
    • Pelicans play 7 games in the next 10 days, including a 5-in-6 homestand.
      • Of NOP's 9 games in this 15 day stretch, only 2 are against below-.500 teams, and one of those is against the very hot Lakers.
    • Clippers are essentially in the midst of an 11 game road-trip, having played in Chicago last night, and having 8 more road games in 15 days, with 2 random home games mixed in.
    • Nuggets have a 7-game trip from 3/17-3/30, all of it east of the Mississippi until the final game in OKC.
    • Jazz and Spurs have just 5 road games between them the rest of the month. Spurs also have no B2B's.
    • If things break the way I've projected above, Jazz and Spurs would be sitting at the 5 and 6 seeds respectively at month's end, while the Clippers and Nuggets will be 2 games outside of the playoff spots.

    Yep. They had a game vs Indiana postponed earlier in the season, so the makeup game got scheduled for 3/21, wedged inbetween previously scheduled games on 3/20 (DAL) and 3/22 (LAL).
