    Do any of the games matter today or is this another day off for the starters? I think Pacers sitting all their starters today.

    I could see the Nuggets-Clippers using this as a dress rehearsal. I can also see where both would prefer the #3 seed and avoid the Mavericks

    matters to the Rockets. They will want to play well. I think Toronto plays pretty hard as well.

    I know it’s risky, but im leaving a couple slots open for the late lac-den game, i have a feeling den b squad is going off!

    I think that game goes as normal. Both teams are still jockeying for seeding.

    My Jeremiah Martin hunch early on is Dougie McBuckets

    Terrible play if Horford, Harris and Richardson play lol

    OKC needs to win 1 more or Utah to lose tomorrow for the 5 seed, though I’m not sure how much they care about that.

    Indy needs a win or Philly loss to clinch 4-5 and avoid Boston. Philly needs to win out and Indy to lose out for 5 seed.

    Toronto locked into 2 seed.

    Miami locked into 4-5.

    Houston can finish 3, 4 or 5. Not sure they really care, will be facing either OKC or Utah.

    Clippers win clinches 2 seed. Denver wins out and Clippers lose out gives Denver the 2. Neither team seems to care about the 2 and would be fine avoiding Dallas.

    Hardly any resting players today. That will all happen tomorrow and Friday.

    Isn’t the whole Indiana team porobobly resting? McConnel 30 mins? Sumner at 3k to get 25-30 mins? I tend to like Sumner after watching them lately.

    I don’t believe that, had denver cared about seeding they wouldn’t have ran there bench the entire 4th vs the lakers in a winnable game.

    Jakarr Sampson if the Indy bigs sit.

    Terrible games today. I’ll play one lineup and save my money for the great slate tomorrow.

  • yisman

    I guess the NBA decided not to use any of the proposed home court advantages so we have teams not caring about seeding and losing games on purpose. Sitting starters the entire game or playing them for one half, etc.

    NBA could’ve made the end of the season decent.

    We’re extremely lucky to have an end of the season. Kudos to the NBA for responsibly coming up with a way to try and complete the season.

    He might get short minutes but I’m guessing he plays. They have no depth there until Schröder gets back; all they get out of resting Paul is they wear out SGA.

    You wouldn’t care about home court or not, but you might care about which team you play in the 1st round. So, seeding does have some importance. Maybe not though. Maybe teams figure if they’re going to make it through their conference they’re going to have to beat great teams no matter what.

    B2B after 32 minutes? I’ll bet he’s never done that in his life.

    I can see some teams wanting to set up against other teams. Miami probably feels pretty confident against Milwaukee for example, if they make it through to the 2nd round.

    Clippers are 3-0 against Dallas, whereas Denver is 1-2 on the season.

    There are probably a few more examples

    Or they think now what everyone else will say later. Fake championship.

    Maybe if Phoenix wins after going undefeated inside the bubble.
