NBA Playoff Seeding Open Thread: Blazers @ Clippers

New, comments

Tonight, the Clippers play the Blazers. The outcome affects the future playoff plans of Your Memphis Grizzlies. Let's talk it out!

USA TODAY Sports

If the Nuggets win out, they're the third seed. If the Nuggets, Clippers, and Grizzlies all win out, the Nuggets are third, the Clippers are fourth, the Grizzlies are fifth, and the Clippers would have home court. If the Grizzlies win out and the Clippers lose tonight, the Grizzlies would have home court in the resulting Clippers/Grizzlies series.

Really, it's more complicated than that, and I recommend you check out this CBSSports piece laying out the 3/4/5 situation in the Western Conference.

That said: Go Blazers! Check out Blazer's Edge and Clips Nation for both sides of tonight's story.
