Come on Dallas


With Rockets losing tonight... Does not really matter if Warriors wins since they’re behind us.

We better make sure we beat them then, they have an easy schedule, probably only 1-2 more losses.


As long we take care of business we should be good... High possibility were in a collision course to face them in the play-in.

Can't wait for their impending first round exit. They're such a pathetic group.

They traded two first round picks. Is that how you'd spend your remaining draft capital?

Right before that they called on a completely phantom foul on Dray so it all evens out.

We knew the bottom of the West was going to be a wild ending going into the play-ins. The games are tight and fun.

The Warriors are basically locked into the 10th spot now. It would take something crazy for them to move either up or down. They’ll probably be resting players in that game.

They are literally one game behind us, and they pass us if they win the final matchup

Yeah and like someone else said, they have some easy match ups coming up, that back to back against Cleveland and Minnesota will tell us a lot on rather we will have a chance to move up or perhaps go back down to 10th

How are the Warriors still in the play-in picture? Curry has been shooting like crap (for his standards) for awhile now. Admittedly I don’t watch much warriors games, but when I have this year…every time Curry was having bad shooting nights.

Guess they aren’t the one man show the media painted them out to be.

Green's suspension hurt them a lot beginning of the year. But they been playing really good ball last few months.

Their rookies has also stepped up along side Kuminga/Moody/Klay playing better.

Don’t forget Andrew Wiggins he’s stepped up in recent weeks and has given them another scoring option

Lakers would have to concede the game against Minnesota on 4/7. If they rest Bron and AD for that game, then maybe they have a 60% win chance against the Warriors on 4/9.

As crazy as it seems but the Warriors could overtake the Lakers for 9th spot. Warriors have an easier schedule than the Lakers. Good news is Houston lost again so it seems like the Lakers have almost clinched a play-in spot. Then Lakers have the option to rest Bron and AD because they'd have to play two extra elimination games prior to the playoffs.

I don't know why some people think Warriors game is gonna be a win for us. No team in the West is an easy out.

The NBA made the call that’s why. They will force Steph and LeBron until both of them finally go away. Not soon enough tbh.
