If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 17

Now a week into March, the brackets are pretty set. The East is definitely set, with 7.5 games separating #8 from #9. The Lakers are still making a case in the West, but 2.5 games back may be too much when you have a poor road record in a powerful conference. Right now, Miami is […]

Celtics Need to Play for Rest Rather Than Playoff Seeding

After winning three straight games, the Boston Celtics have just 23 games left before the playoffs are upon them.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 14

There’s not much not to like about the season 14 weeks in, unless your team is well on its way to the #1 pick. San Antonio and Miami are still in the lead, and plenty of other teams are where they were last week, with some minor changes. Of course, that means many different teams […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 13

We’re now officially past the halfway point of the season, and things are still fairly close. It’s looking more and more like we’ll see the Heat and Celtics in the first round, but other than that, who knows? The top of the West remains volatile, as does a large swath of the East. Teams could […]

Rajon Rondo’s Triple-Double Not Enough to Push Celtics Past Carmelo Anthony, Knicks

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 12

12 weeks into the season, we finally have two #1 teams remaining the same from the previous week. The Heat are creating a bit of space while the Thunder have some tough competition at the top.

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 11

We’re well into January, and there’s still plenty of story-lines to follow. The Celtics and Nets are up; the Hawks are down. The race for both #1s and the West’s #8 are still very much up for grabs. Teams are jumping all over each other all the time, so let’s look at what would happen […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 10

We’re a full 10 weeks into the season now, coming up on the halfway mark, and the league is as exciting as ever. The eight playoff teams in each conference are beginning to separate themselves from #9-#15 a little, but within that top group, it’s still a veritable free-for-all for positioning. Of the 16 playoff […]

Rajon Rondo Suspended One Game, Won’t Play Against Knicks

Rajon Rondo was suspended one game without pay this afternoon by the NBA for, “making contact with an official and failure to cooperate with a league investigation.” Rondo bumped into an official after a controversial offensive foul call during the second half of Saturday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks. At the time of the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 9

With 2013 finally here, everything is still as tight as ever. Yet again, a #1 seed changed hands, as did each #8, for that matter. No playoff team is more than a game away from at least one other team. Teams are going back and forth as much as they ever have, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 8

2012 is coming to a close, but it’s not doing much to change the volatility in the NBA standings. Both conferences have new leaders. The races to fill out the bracket are as close as ever. Truly, no team is safe, so let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started as of Wednesday, […]

Coming up on the end of the year, no one’s really separating themselves from the pack. The races for both #8 seeds are logjams. The West’s race for #1 continues to be a revolving door. Slides and rises continue to run rampant across the NBA, so let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs […]
