Early Playoff Predictions for the Western Conference



As of now the top eight teams according to record listed on nba.com are:

1. SA (7-1)
2. OKC (5-1)
3. PHX (5-2)
4. PORTL (5-2)
5. LAC (5-3)
6. GSW (5-3)
7. MINN (5-3)
8. HOU (5-3)

I think we will be battling Portland and Memphis (who i think will have a down year compared to years past) for the 8th spot.

We can sticky this thread if you guys want and I will try to keep it updated.

11/13/13 Update: Pels are (3-6) and despite our bad start only a few games behind other teams ahead of us

It won't last. And even if it does their management doesn't want it to so they'll start tanking hard if their around .500 AT&T the Allstar break

They have 4 first round picks in one of the deepest drafts ever. They could win a championship a be fine.

They won't go out and trade for pieces to compete, but the Bledsoe/Dragic front court is nice and Markieff Morris and Plumlee have really emerged. They could be a sneaky contestant for the 8th seed

NO will get it together when Anderson returns.

1.) SA
2.) OKC
3.) Hou
4.) GSW
5.) Clips
6.) Minny
7.) Portland
8.) NO - I think they beat out Memphis for the last spot

Clippers way too low - they'll be a 1 2 or 3 seed.
