Anyone know what the largest division lead to end a season is? I tried googling it and had no luck. We are up 25 on the Pistons right now, that is absurd. The Bulls when they went 72-10 only won by 20.

Enjoying the Lakers slipping a bit. Enjoying the Cavs even more.

Eight games to go. 67 wins will clinch the best overall record in the NBA right now. 65 wins clinches the #1 seed in the East. A win versus the Magic on Friday would cut that down to 64.

Celtics going into OT, LakeShow down 1 to Milwaukee going into the 4th -- but YA-HOO to the Rap-Tors!

UPDATED: Lakers now up 7, but Celtics/Bobcats going into second OT.

UPDATE II: Damn Ray Allen (a 3 gives the Celtics the win) and Damn the Bucks (had a chance to tie with a 3 but couldn't pull it off). We'll just have to take the Magic loss and be happy tonight!

Nonsense. You act like this was some kind of turning point. The fact is, short of going on a massive losing streak (which will only happen with several catastrophic injuries in the next game or two) (knock wood), even if the Cavs got home court they'd still need to -- or should be able to -- win some playoff games on the road. Championship teams figure out a way to do that and the Cavs will be no different, home court or no home court.

Bad game. Shake it off and let's get ready for the Magic.

I'd just feel a LOT better if we had home court in the Finals, I know that's a long ways away and hell we're still 2 games up on LA. But...we have some really tough games here against San Antonio and Orlando.

With 6 games left to play here's where we stand:

Cleveland
(1) Cleveland (61-15)
Games remaining: 6 (4 Home, 2 Away)
vs. +.500: 4 vs. Div: 1
Next 2: SA (Sun), WAS (Wed)


LA
(2) Los Angeles (60-16)
Games remaining: 6 (4 Home, 2 Away)
vs. +.500: 3 vs. Div: 2
Next 2: LAC (Sun), @SAC

This should be one heck of an end to the season.

Lakers started slow but now stretching out the lead against Sacramento -- but Houston helped the Cavs out by knocking off the Magic, pushing them down to the 3 seed and setting up the possibility that it might be better for the Cavs long-term if they LOST to the Celtics on Sunday in order for them to have home court in a potential second-round matchup against Orlando.

The Lakers have lost 7 straight at the Rose Garden, going back to 2005. It's the last good chance we have of the Lakers dropping another game. Everything points towards them losing, but I still expect them to man up and win it with home court on the line.

If they do lose and we can knock off Philly, that gives us the opportunity to win 2 of 3 to secure home court for the entire playoffs.

Kobe Bryant didn't meet with reporters until a full hour after Thursday's game in order to receive "maintenance work" on his sore right knee.
Bryant looked good last night despite wearing a protective sleeve over his right knee, so this is just an FYI. Bryant had surgery on the knee in 2006, hyperextended it in the preseason and has had bouts with tendinitis, but isn't expected to miss any games.

Orlando lost to the Knicks in the Kingdom and the Blazers got down 10 before cutting ot to 4 at the half. Hopefully this is the point when the back end of that back-to back bites LA.

106-98, Blazers do it again to the Lake Show.

Two game lead with three to play.

If the Cavs make it to the Finals against LA I'd like to petition the league to use the Rose Garden as the Cavs home floor.

AND the Lakers only have two games to play - so the Cavs would have to lose two out of the last three games just to give the Lakers a chance to tie the Cavs record by winning out themselves.

Best record and home court is in the Cavs' hands. Add to that the Celtics now likely getting the 2 seed (meaning Orlando would have to go through Boston just to get to us in the second round) and Bynum's lack of conditioning being exposed tonight ... adds up to an awesome weekend to wrap up the regular season.

On to Boston this Sunday, eh?!

Minor note, or not-so-minor. Utah now holds the #8 spot in the West, behind Dallas. If the Jazz stay in that spot, they play L.A. in the first round. L.A. has all sorts of problems winning in Utah, esp. in the Playoffs. Utah can and will stretch them out to five games at a minimum, whereas Dallas would lay down like a dog.

I want Utah at #8 and Portland at #4. Make the Lake Show work for their WC title.

Yeah, I think we're all praying Orlando chokes on Bostons you know what in the 2nd round. I'd much rather Boston limp into the ECF against us, should we be lucky enough to get there.

The Cavs have Boston (home), Indiana (Road), Philly (home)
Lakers have Memphis and Utah at home.

I would love to see the collective psyche of the Lakers fans if they lose to Utah (#8 seed in the West).

If you look at the playoff matchups right now here are the potential roads for Cleveland and LA (if all the top seeds win)

Cleveland vs Detroit
Cleveland vs Atlanta/Miami
Cleveland vs Orlando/Boston

Lakers vs Utah
Lakers vs Portland/San Antonio
Lakers vs Denver/Houston

This could get very entertaining coming down the stretch into the playoffs.

It will definitely be a great playoffs. I see the Lakers getting tested in the first two rounds more than the WCF though. I've seen the Nuggets enough out here to know that they will fold like a lawn chair vs. LA, and not sure Houston has enough firepower outside of Yao.

But Utah and Portland/SA (now Portland moreso than SA obviously) could give them hella problems.

Well it comes to this. Win 1 out of the last 2 and the Cavaliers lock up home court for the Finals if they make it that far.


Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread since I started it. It's been a lot of fun checking in and seeing what my fellow fans have had to say. Let's win 1 more and take this thing all the way to a championship.
