I thought they changed the rules so that division winner is no longer guaranteed a top 4 seed.   I think it's just the top 8 teams by record, and if there's a tie, the first tie breaker is head to head record, and second is division winner.  I could be wrong though.

 

 

Hey man, they won't be division winners if the Grizz tie with them.

 

Ahhh ur right they did change the rules, i didn't know bout that. So what division winners aren't even guaranteed a playoff spot then? Whats the point of divisions anymore lol
 
 
Tiebreaker Basis For Two-Way Ties
 
(1) Head-to-head won-lost percentage
(2) Division leader wins tie from team not leading a division
(3) Division won-lost percentage for teams in the same division
(4) Conference won-lost percentage
(5) W-L Percentage vs. Playoff teams, own conference
(6) W-L Percentage vs. Playoff teams, other conference
(7) Net Points, all games

I don't know how brutal the Jazz's schedule is coming down the stretch. They play SA twice in April and SA will have no reason to compete since the Jazz aren't going to be in their half of the bracket. Golden State will have wrapped up the conference before their game. They play Portland twice and Minnesota once but the only thing those teams will likely be competing for is how many ping-pong balls they will get. The only really tough games they have remaining are @ the Clippers and hosting Washington.


Portland will be a tough out. They have been playing well since the trade and are only a half game behind for the 8th spot. They will be playing for a spot in the POs

If they are that would help but last night's loss really hurt the team's chances to move up.
