I would like either #8 or #6. Since our chances of getting #6 are not exactly great (compared to our chances for barely making the playoffs as #8) -- I hope HOU will win tonight, and then UTA can lose another one in San Antonio. This way we get some separation from the Jazz; Dallas and Portland are not in the picture anymore IMO.
OKC is not very hot lately, or perhaps they are subtly tanking for #2 (
), meaning that with #8 we play #1 San Antonio, and I kind of like that matchup. They are still the favorites, obviously, but I prefer playing them (with a slightly hobbled PG) instead of a young, super athletic team such as OKC or - gasp! - the Clippers, who have fast, elite point guards.
So yeah. Go Rockets.
