Phoenix is the second seed trailing the Jazz by a single game. Utah will play the Thunder and Kings who’ve both been eliminated from postseason participation.
The Jazz are virtually guaranteed a win versus the Thunder but the Kings match might not be as easily checked off as they’ve been playing spoiler down the stretch with wins in six of their last eight games.
Sacramento will need to decide if they want to try to lose both their final games to get a better lottery position. The Kings are mired in a group within two wins of each other including the Bulls, Pelicans, and Wizards for lottery seeds ranging from eighth through 11th.
Of course, even if the Kings were to defeat the Jazz, the Suns would still need to win both their games against the Spurs.
Phoenix got a huge win on Thursday versus the Blazers beating them in clutch time behind the efforts of Chris Paul.
The injury report had not been updated as of posting but Deandre Ayton (knee) and Cameron Johnson (wrist) didn’t play on Thursday while Abdel Nader remained out healing from an arthroscopic knee procedure.
San Antonio Spurs
Although the Western Conference top 10 teams who’ll be active in postseason play are cemented only one has confirmed their seeding prior to games played Friday — the Spurs.
San Antonio will be the 10th seed regardless of what they do in these final two games versus Phoenix.
For weeks the Pelicans and Kings were pushing with visions of upsetting San Antonio but proving how valuable culture and identity are the Spurs held them off winning important matches when necessary.
In particular, the win versus Sacramento helped secure the Spurs berth and was the only loss the Kings suffered in a seven-game stretch. It was one of only two wins the Spurs have collected in their last 10 games (the other versus the Bucks).
They’ll enter this weekend on a two-game losing streak and since Gregg Popovich invented load management it won’t be surprising if he elects to rest several members of the core in these final two games.
Trey Lyles (ankle) and Luka Samanic (wrist) were out Thursday and listed as day-to-day. Derrick White (ankle) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
