Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers started looking pretty good with their new cast of characters before the all-star break and won five of their last six.
They are a game behind the Pelicans in the win column but have an equal number of losses. The way things are trending, the Pelicans are most people’s pick to drop out of the Western Conference playoffs all together.
But that Utah Jazz is hot on the tails of the Clippers. It’s won 11 in a row and FiveThirtyEight ranks it as the third-best team in the entire conference, behind Houston and Golden State.
Tobias Harris made it all the way to the finals of the Three-Point Shooting Contest over the weekend. For a guy who has been a little tough to figure out, it’s clear he can really play.
He seems destined to be a guy who ultimately gets paid, but never really has what it takes to be a key cog on a championship team. For what the Clippers need now, he can get it done, though.
We’re 50-something, almost 60 games into the season now and FiveThirtyEight’s projection model, which has been running since before the season started, expects the Suns to finish with the worst record in the NBA.
That would be big news because Phoenix needs some talent to throw next to Devin Booker, who won last weekend’s Three-Point Contest, by the way.
If the Suns finish with the worst record in the NBA and if they are awarded the first overall pick in this summer’s NBA Draft (or even if they do without having the worst record in the league), it will be the first time in Phoenix’s history it has such an opportunity.
The Suns have twice drafted second overall. The first time was in 1969 when they lost a coin flip with the Milwaukee Bucks, who ended up drafting Lew Alcindor.
Phoenix got Neal Walk, who averaged over 20 a game for a season but didn’t have a particularly long career.
Phoenix took Armen Gilliam #2 overall in 1987 out of UNLV. Same sort of story for Gilliam, who wasn’t a complete bust but left something to be desired with his NBA career.
Perhaps this is the magical year of the NBA Lottery for the Phoenix Suns.

Just a funny feeling. The Clippers are still an enigma to me.
