Won 8 of their last 9. Only 0.5 games behind Miami and Brooklyn for the 7-8 spots. Their defense has been pretty ridiculous during this stretch. They are resembling the team that many thought they would be entering the season, after a pretty good year last year.
Jefferson is back. I mean, the...

Not much positive I can say from my perspective
Pels made every clutch shot, moved the ball, got every loose ball, and made their free throws. Davis was a beast. His presence defensively was truly felt.
Uncharacteristic for the non josh smith Pistons, they missed every clutch shot, did not mov...

Josh Smith with the Houston Rockets --
27 mpg, 35% fg%, 57% ft%, 3.3 tpg, 9.7 ppg.
He also has not blocked a shot, and has not made a 3pt fg in 4 attempts. Houston is 1-2 with Smith, with their lone victory in OT vs. Memphis.
Meanwhile, the Pistons are 2-0 without Smith (5-23 with him)....

Let's make the assumption that the current top 7 seeds will all be playoff teams. That includes Memphis, GS, Por, Hou, SA, Dal, and LAC.
The 8 seed is Phx (10-8).
9-12 looks like
9. SAC (9-8)
10. Den (9-8)
11. NO (7-8)
12. OKC (5-12) (4.5 back of PHX)

Went there for the first time recently.
I love hot dogs. Haven't had a good one in awhile. Got the Nacho Mama, with cheese, jalapenos, bacon bits, and pico de gallo. Very good. Warm. And not overly sloppy. It looks like they have a bunch of good stuff on the menu. Fries were good as well. ...

I'm not sure why I like the show so much...I guess its because they are all pretty knowledgeable about the NBA and they don't try too hard.
