Denver’s seven-game road trip that was supposed to end its playoff chances comes to an end on Friday night in Oklahoma City.
The trip did ends Denver’s playoff chances. The Nuggets have gone 2–4 and sit two games back of the Jazz, even after it lost at home to the Celtics last night. In between Denver and Utah, in 9th-place, are the Clippers.
Denver’s chances aren’t zero but it’ll probably have to win out and it definitely won’t be able to get in if it loses more than one of its last seven.
Every team the Nuggets play is going to the playoffs, too, except possible not the Clippers, who the Nuggets visit on April 7.
So are Denver’s players holding out hope and playing hard until they are eliminated? Or will they come into this game with the “stick a fork in us” attitude? Obviously, even if Denver plays hard and plays well, it will be tough to win this game.
The Thunder is two games behind 3rd-place and two games ahead of the 8th-place Jazz, so while it doesn’t have much higher to climb, it can still slide quite a ways if it doesn’t finish the regular season strong.
That’s the same tough spot most of the Western Conference playoff teams face: they have to play hard down the stretch because there are still enough contenders on the outside, trying to work their way in. That problem doesn’t exist in the East, nor for Houston or Golden State.
It isn’t really a “problem” for San Antonio either because Gregg Popovich doesn’t really give a damn. If there’s a team outside of Houston and Golden State in the West that I’m looking at to make a run, it’s still San Antonio. Otherwise, the West should be for the Warriors, who are resting their players for the upcoming series with Houston in a couple months.
