  • Lakers Playoff Scenarios

    After last night's win against the San Antonio Spurs, the Lakers locked up at least the #3 seed in the West Conference.

    The standings as of right now:
    (2) Los Angeles Lakers 56-25
    (3) Dallas Mavericks 56-25
    (4) Oklahoma City Thunder 55-26

    (6) Portland Trail Blazers 48-33 *Locked up 6 spot; but still play Lakers if they fall to 3.
    (7) New Orleans Hornets 46-35
    (8) Memphis Grizzlies 46-35

    Lakers to clinch (2) spot:
    Lakers WIN or Mavericks LOSS
    Mavericks to clinch (2) spot:
    Mavericks WIN & Lakers LOSS

    Mavericks clinch (3) spot:
    Mavericks WIN & Lakers WIN
    Mavericks LOSS & Thunder LOSS

    Thunder clinch (3) spot:
    Thunder WIN & Mavericks LOSS

    Hornets clinch (7) spot:
    Hornets WIN
    Hornets LOSS & Grizzlies LOSS

    Grizzlies clinch (7) spot:
    Grizzlies WIN & Hornets LOSS

    If Lakers/Mavericks tie = Lakers
    If Lakers/Thunder tie = Lakers
    If Mavericks/Thunder tie = Thunder
    If Hornets/Grizzlies tie = Hornets

    Tonight's Games:
    NO Hornets @ DAL Mavericks (5:00pm) *ESPN
    MIL Bucks @ OKC Thunder (5:00pm)
    LA Lakers @ SAC Kings (7:30pm)
    MEM Grizzlies @ LA Clippers (7:30pm) *ESPN


    If the Hornets beat the Mavericks tonight. Then the Lakers will face the Hornets in the first round of the playoffs.

    That's what i'm hoping for since they don't have David West and the Lakers are (4-0) against them this season.

    Also since that game is before the Lakers/Kings, Phil Jackson can rest some of the starters. That's only if the Hornets win their game.
