    Minny has 36 wins and the Lakers have 37 wins. If they catch them they go from likely 10th pick to 11th. At 10th pick they are 5% more likely to have top 5 pick than if they finished 11th. Minny holds tiebreaker over Lakers.

    Do the wolves try to lose?

        Prove what? He can lead a team to 37 wins, unlike those 36 or less win garbage teams?

          Bobby Marks has a tweet that Kyle Lowry has bonus money at stake the next two days. Any idea what that is? Looks like he already played 65 games and his minutes are in line.

              Found a sportsnet article on this:
              https://www.sportsnet.ca/basketball/...on-incentives/

              Lowry will earn a $200,000 bonus for each of the following:

              *All-star appearance
              *All-NBA team appearance
              *All-Defensive team appearance
              *Raptors reach conference finals
              *Raptors reach NBA Finals
              *Raptors win NBA championship.

              But all of those benchmarks will only pay out should Lowry reach certain totals in minutes per game and total games played, ones Marks reports are unlikely to be met:
              Not sure what can happen anymore in 2 days. He reached the 65 game mark with over 25mpg.

              He got the ASG nod.. probably won't get all-nba or all-defense. Should get the Conf Final, NBA finals, and Chip though.. so another $600K.

                  This has become one of my favorite annual traditions, thanks Dan.

                  Scaptor and JClaw are there every year it seems like. Consistent. I think consmap usually preforms well also. And what a rookie year by berta. They have to be our go to guys when inthepaint gets knocked out of the paint.

                  I'm conflicted with Mixx, I love his posts but you gotta draw the line somewhere, and the other 4 are on a 60+ win pace. Mixx was "only" on a 57 win pace. I think 4 is the key after (or IF) our final win streak dies out. 4= the amount of losses it takes to be eliminated in a round, so in theory they all get a crack at saving a series.

                  TRex, while I admire his GDT performance, can go AWOL at any moment. I'm not sure I'm comfortable giving him the keys to this high performance engine.
                  Nows my chance to prove if im a Micheal Carter Williams or a Damian Lillard. Im honored

                        lol as if the "prove em" line has ever been about team success. Wiggins will spend the game planning his vacation, KAT will try to drop 50 cause someone called him overrated in that player poll.

                          Goldblum 0 2 0

                          inthepaint is obviously in for a game 1 start if he wins - can't be breaking that win streak - and drops into that middle mess of .500 teams if he loses.

                          We've got some obvious big hitters here: Scraptor and JClaw both had incredible years. Same goes for bertarapsfan, consmap and MixxAOR.

                          TRex was basically unbeatable, except that at the end of his 2nd win streak, he failed to even create a game thread, leading directly and irrefutably to a loss. That loss is assigned to TRex above (showing how dominant he was when he actually started a thread). I'm conflicted here. Can TRex be trusted with playoff game threads? I'd say no... But in the spirit of load management, is the performance when he does play more important than the game he didn't show up for? Maybe TRex should be our ace in the hole - break glass in case of emergency, about to be eliminated option.

                          If the playoffs go as deep as we all hope (and we don't just sweep every series), we've got a few other smaller sample solid performers to fall back on as the occasional losses pile up. Joey and Keon both had good records in a few games, and then basically anyone else who got a win can step in (sorry Demo, planetmars and Goldblum, it just can't be risked).

                            Anthony Davis (back) is probable and Stanley Johnson(ankle), Frank Jackson (concussion), Trevon Bluiett (thumb), Darius Miller (thigh), (quadricep) and Jrue Holiday(abdominal) are out for the Pelicans.

                            Andre Iguodala (toe), Andrew Bogut (rest), Kevin Durant (rest) and Damian Jones (pectoral) are out for the Warriors.

                              T Rex would come in here and brag about his record and how superior he is, but his head is now too big to fit inside the thread

                                I should call the Pelicans, might have to chance to crack the roster tonight
