For now lets keep playing Melo and Rose and tracking up the losses. We can worry about tiebreakers when wet get there. Watching march madness always gives me hope. There are lots of good players, we need to get ourselves a mid first round pick, someway somehow.

Why is any of that good. We're worse than both and own the Bulls' 2nd round pick.

We were only 2 wins ahead of the Hornets- don't lose sights of the teams behind us, we're only a few wins away from disaster

Correct - we need to maintain distance from these teams, when they increase the distance it's a good thing. The bulls second round pick will move in the wrong direction but a second round pick moving a few slots is much lower risk than the Bulls overtaking us.

Yeah good points. We want both teams to remain in the playoffs chase as long as possible so they beat us in our upcoming games and also don't overtake us in the tankathon. The second round pick placement should not be a concern.

Wow what a big win for us in the tank. Philly were down at least 13 in the 3rd against the Celtics but have just come back to win. They play the Magic tomorrow too so something has to give in that. Could easily be level with us by late Monday night.

Mavs won earlier as well and Wolves play Pelicans later so thats another W for one or other. Things are getting very interesting as to just who low we can fall here.

Hell yeah. I had that game circled because the Celtics were missing Isaiah Thomas. That's awesome news. Philly has Orlando tomorrow and two more games against the Nets!!

Good night for the Tank- pelicans won as well as the Sixers. How did the Twolves get so close to us? I could have sword they were on a roll, but we're just one win ahead of them in the tank standings.

Two things I am looking for out of this trip.

- 0-4
- Mathematical elimination from the playoffs

Then increased PT for Plumlee, NDour and Kuz

Useful exercise Smackeddog. You missed out Charlotte who started the night with a 30-39 record and lead Atlanta by 9 at halftime. 76ers up by 15 in Orlando and looking good to join us on 27-43 by the end of tonight.

Philly up 9 to start the 4th in Orlando.
I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Orlando cutting into the lead but they are in full on tank mode. Hezonja jacking threes early in the shot clock and Orlando playing its full bench in a six point game with six minutes to go.

The last couple of minutes were hilarious stuff. NEITHER team wanting to win. There are going to be a few tank classics before this is over with and our game, the final game, against Philly is likely to be one for the ages.

Given the schedule and the fact I don't see the Nets, Lakers and Suns moving from 1-3 it's really now looking like being between us, Orlando and Philly for 4-6. If we lose every game we will definitely get 4th and even 1-12 may be enough. I actually think Orlando winning is the best result as they have played more games and only have the Nets twice whereas Philly have the Nets twice and us.

Haha - agreed. Looking like neither team wants to win.

I also agree that Orlando winning might be better. They have a decent young core. I actually like a fair amount of their starters. I'm surprised they're as bad as they are.
