Re: The race for 1st

4-4 for Miami to catch up to us if they go undefeated. 2.5 up on Boston

Re: The race for 1st

since miami likely wont catch the bulls, i hope they beat the celtics. in fact celtics have tough games ahead ...spurs (mmh now with duncan out they have lost a couple), bulls, heat any the sixers.

Re: The race for 1st

If the Lakers and Bulls end up with the same record, who has home court in the finals?

I can't find the article explaining why, but apparently we would hold home court.

I would assume it's the same rules as found here:

http://espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/matchups

Quote:
* Two-Team Tiebreaker:
o 1. Division winner (this criterion is applied regardless of whether the tied teams are in the same division)
o 2. Better record in head-to-head games
o 3. Higher winning percentage within division (if teams are in the same division)
o 4. Higher winning percentage in conference games
o 5. Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in own conference
o 6. Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in opposite conference
o 7. Higher point differential between points scored and points allowed
1 and 2 are irrelevant (both division winners, split head to head games). I'm unsure if #3 counts. Bulls have a better division record though. But, if 3 doesn't count, then Lakers win criteria #4 (better win % in conference games).

Re: The race for 1st

Thanks for the info. Looks like the Bulls would have home court, i think?

KC Johnson tweeted the Bulls hold the tiebreaker over the Lakers now. Don't know how, but we do.

Re: The race for 1st

Man...the article was literally on NBA.com like a week ago.

Does anybody more tech savvy than me know how to search NBA.com? They have the search bar, but it seems really limited.

I'm trying my best to find it.

Somebody had to have seen it.

It was an article describing the home court advantage if the Spurs, Lakers, and Bulls ended up with the same record. It even described how unlikely that it would be that two #1 seeds even met in the Finals (only happened once with Lakers/Boston in the last ten years, I think) but it broke it down anyway.

But now that link yodurk posted has got me more confused, because with that link it definitely seems like the Lakers would have homecourt based off that.

Argh.

Oh, and I just literally saw that post by P to the Wee. Don't know why I missed it earlier.

Re: The race for 1st

I'm assuming the in-conference tiebreaker only applies for breaking ties within the conference, while the record against the opposing conference is what determines it for the Finals.

Makes sense to me.

Re: The race for 1st

Bulls are in a nice spot.

#1 seed in the East is clinched.

#2 record in the NBA is clinched, meaning we have home court advantage vs everyone except the Spurs. And I'm convinced the Spurs aren't going to make the Finals.

Question: With 3 games left, do we rest our starters and get everyone healthy? We have almost nothing to play for, and it would be terrible if someone got injured.
