Do we finally make the playoffs?
The West has been pretty wide open for years. Seeds 6-12 usually can be interchangeable based on injury and streaks. For instance if Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio are healthy all of last season then the TimberWolves probably make the playoffs. On the other hand, the Warriors are a team with multiple injury prone cornerstones that most people here thought wouldn't do well this year and they stayed healthy enough to make the playoffs. The Pelicans should be in that 6-12 mix but we won't know where until we see how healthy they can stay and what other teams face tough injuries.
