And...we are still in the dark as far as where this team will end up in the postseason.
With Dallas' 96-91 loss to the Spurs tonight, the Portland Trailblazers will finish with the fifth seed no matter what happens tonight against Denver. Houston earned the eighth seed with their win against the Sacramento Kings.
The Grizzlies and Mavericks are the only teams left who do not know their seeding. Dallas finishes the season 42-40. If the Grizzlies win tonight, they will earn the sixth seed. If not they will finished tied with the Mavericks at 42-40, with Dallas owning the tie-breaker.
In other words, if the Grizzlies win they will start the playoffs in Oklahoma City. If they lose, they will start in San Antonio.
One is more preferable than the other.
All they gotta do is beat a team going for the record for the most regular season wins.
