With the finish line approaching, there are still many details left to be ironed out, but a few things have become more clear for the NBA’s four California squads.
The Clippers, once sporting the league’s best record, are now in a dogfight to remain in the West’s coveted top three, avoiding a brutal 4/5 battle with either Denver or Memphis. The Warriors’ swoon appears over, and their playoff-starved fans can comfortably look forward to the playoffs.
The Lakers will be an 8-seed if they’re anything at all.
And meanwhile, Sacramento has a much better chance of keeping the Kings.
