If the Warriors lose out the rest of the way, they are a lock to tie with either the Nets or Raptors for the #6 and #7 pre-lottery slots. They could even gain sole possession of #6 if both of the aforementioned teams end up with winning one more game each. If the Cavaliers win 2 of their remaining 5 games while the Nets and Raptors each win 1 of their remaining 3, the Warriors could end up in a tie for #5 and #6 pre-lottery slots. Kings look like they have locked up the #4 slot barring a win vs. the Lakers in their final game of the year. If Lakers rest their stars, this could be a distinct possibility.
WOW! I've haven't been so captivated by the final week of NBA games since the year after We Believe.
