Will Chicago be #1?

They have a better division record that us because they're division sux all kinds of @$$. And they will their last 2 games, unless New York can do us a huge favor. The Nets don't stand a chance. We have the Fakes and the Suns. I think the Fakes are going to have play ball to keep that #2 slot. But the only reason this would matter is if we meet the Bulls in the finals. It's going to be fun all the way down to the end! Go Spurs Go!

i can see your point, but Chicago has a tough road for them to use that HCA vs. the West. they have to go through Indiana, then Orlando, then Heat/Boston.

they're gonna make Rose beat them and make him a jump shooter in the playoffs. i just don't see Rose doing that and not running out of gas since he's been at it this whole season.

Hey, we agree on something. I was just thinking about that today. It took 42 points from Rose to beat the Spurs the last game. He can't do that for a whole series much less the entire playoffs.

i think the spurs care about having the better overall record just because of the historical point of view. at this point it seems like the bulls are trying a lot harder than the spurs to try to secure the # one overall spot. spurs achieved there goal by getting the # 1 spot in the western conference.the spurs have the right mentality- its all about the road to the finals, avoiding injury's, limiting minutes, and making sure the role players are properly tuned up.

the bulls rely to heavily on rose and im sure the spurs will exploit that if they were to meet up in the finals.

The Knicks also can give us a hand. They are still playing to get 6 and avoid Miami

Division record is not what matters here it is the record against the other conference. This means that both the Spurs and Bulls have identical records versus the opposite conference and so if both were to meet in the Finals assuming they finish with the same record, then it is a random drawing to determine HCA. As it stands the bulls and SPurs do have identical records versus the other conf. and they do not have another out of conf. game left

Chicago would be tough, but give Pop a chance to formulate a game plan? I like our chances.

Obviously Chicago is playing the best ball hands down in the east and overall, but Boston will still be extremely tough to beat and Orlando won't be a push over. Will such a young team be able o handle the pressure deeper in the playoffs?

NBA tie-breaking procedure

In the event that two teams are tied in the standings, a series of tiebreakers is applied to determine playoff position:

a. Results of games against each other. (TIE)
b. Higher winning percentage in conference games. (TIE)
c. Higher winning percentage within division (if teams are in the same division). (NULL)
d. Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in own conference. (CHI)
e. Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in opposite conference.
f. Higher point differential between points scored and points allowed.

"If the two teams are tied at the end of the season, the first two tiebreakers would be null as the season series is tied at one game apiece and the Spurs and Bulls have equal records against the opposite conference. That would mean that homecourt advantage would then be determined on the third tiebreaker — a random drawing."

Actually fdm55 is right. There will be (assuming they both make the Finals) a random drawing to see who gets HCA which is complete

I wonder if the random drawing will be just as fair as the 1985 Draft Lottery?! jk

well, yes and no. when we've had HCA, we've won. we have also won without full homecourt advantage prior to the playoffs.

2005 Phoenix had HCA and we beat them in the WCF
2007, we were the 3rd seed behind (1) Dallas and (2) Phoenix

i honestly think we can beat the Bulls in the Finals without HCA because of their lack of experience, but like i've mentioned, i doubt they get that far. i think we need HCA against veteran teams and we already have that vs. LAL/DAL/BOS/MIA/ORL/etc

Also I think even if we get the best record, Pop won't get the Coach Of The Year anyways. Best thing is to tank these two games and prepare for the money time.

It's very dangers to play those now-back-against-walls Lakers!

If I'm pop I'll rest all 5 guys and starts our bench.

I think that giving our starters refering to the big three, about 15-20 minutes per night, but thats it just to stay in a groove, because after wednesday there could be anywhere from 4 to 6 days off, and if they do not play anymore from saturdays game then it could be 8 to 10 days off. I can see the benefit of both sides, but for me Id like them to play some.

Don't forget the extra bumps & bruises, and chances of getting injuried!!!

LA ain't exactly tough & scarppy, but merely cheap & dirty!!!

A.Bynum is a Flagrant-Fouls machine!!!

I figure Pop will have one of the big 3 not suit up, and play the rest of the starters under 25 minutes tomorrow. And we will still win!!!

Artest was fouling OKC players in the head even when the game was out of hand, Bynum is just slow.

After watching how dirty LAKERS play, I feel Horry's infamous hip-check is absolutely nothing!!!
