Just some information that might help make you guys make a choice (assuming we do catch someone).
First things first, records:
Of course, Nuggets and up is not realistic.
The Lakers have one game left against the Rockets. If the Lakers win, they would tie their series 2-2. Lakers right now have a 17-20 Conference record while the Rockets are just 13-20 in Conference games. This means that if we win that game and end up tied in record, then the tie-breaker would be most likely ours (if we lose to them and end up tied, then the tie-breaker would go to them). That one game left against them is in the Staples Center.
We have no more games left against the Utah Jazz and they won ou head-to-head matchups 2-1, so they would have the tie-breaker against us in case we end up with the same record.
We have two games left against the Warriors. We're currently 2-0 against them, so with just one victory, we would have the tie-breaker against them. If they win both games, then the tie-breaker would most likely be theirs because, right now, they have an 18-18 Conference record against our 17-20. The two games left are one in Golden State and one in L.A.
We should also keep an eye on the games between them.
Warriors and Rockets still have to games to play between each other, one in Houston and one in Golden State. Houston won the previous two.
Warriors also have one game left against the Jazz. They're 1-1 right now (both played in Utah) and the last game will be in Golden State.
Finally, the Rockets and the Jazz also have one more game to play, which will be in Utah. Rockets are 2-1 against the Jazz right now.
