Denver loses as predicted

by james on April 12th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

The Nuggets are upset, because they just lost to the Utah Jazz in Utah.

They shouldn’t be.

As your intrepid author predicted two days ago, Denver would lose to Utah, while Golden State would probably beat the Clippers at home. Denver is still safe. Denver has the tie breaker.

Golden State is on the road with the Suns and home with the Supersonics. Call that one loss and one victory.

Denver has two home games remaining. One with the Rockets and one with the Grizzlies. Most likely they only need to beat the Grizzlies to limp into the playoffs.

Over in the East

Meanwhile, Atlanta failed to beat Boston due to a hot Sam Cassell and thus failed to clinch a playoff spot.

Atlanta would have ended the NBA’s longest playoff drought with a victory, because Indiana lost to Charlotte earlier Saturday. The Hawks remained two games ahead of the Pacers with two to play, lowering their magic number to one for the right to face the Celtics in a first-round series.


Even is Atlanta clinches, they are nothing more than mince meat to the Celtics.

Here are the Eastern Standings.

Eastern Conference
Team GB
1. z-Boston —
2. y-Detroit 7.5
3. y-Orlando 14.5
4. x-Cleveland 20.5
5. x-Washington 22.0
6. x-Toronto 23.5
7. x-Philadelphia 24.0
8. Atlanta 27.0
9. Indiana 29.0


Good Luck, Atlanta. At least you will be in the playoffs, which is a big step.
