Lots of intriguing games this morning before the Nuggets take the floor tonight. It looks like the Knicks are doing the playoff position tank, sitting Chandler in today's game. I'm pretty sure that New York would rather play the Bulls than the Heat.
The first afternoon game has some interesting implications for Nuggets fans. An OKC win pretty much guarantees that the Thunder and the Spurs will go neck and neck to the end to determine the #1 seed, meaning that they most likely won't rest anyone in the Nuggets 2nd to last game. But it also means that the Lakers will temporarily slide behind the Clippers in the race for the third seed, which could lead to the apparently preferred Stiffs first round match up.
