Just two games left and nothing is decided in the Western Conference. There are some huge games tonight that will make things clearer.
After a hard earned win over the Grizzlies in Memphis, the Clippers look they might have secured home court advantage vs the Grizzlies in the 1st round of playoffs
There are still six different first round scenarios for the Clippers. They could open on the road against either the Grizzlies or Nuggets, or they could have home court advantage against one of those teams or the Warriors or the Rockets.
In the biggest game of the regular season, the Clippers came up with a big win, beating the Grizzlies in Memphis to take over fourth place in the conference and take the inside track for home court in the playoffs.
The Clippers and the Grizzlies met last year in the postseason, and they'll probably meet this year as well. The winner of this game will likely have home court advantage, but either way, call it game 1 of an 8 games playoff series.
Regular season games don't get bigger than this. These two teams are likely to meet in the first round of the playoffs beginning in a week, and the winner of this game will more than likely have home court advantage for that series.
Near the end of their win over the Warriors, Kobe suffered what is most likely a torn Achilles tendon. If so, it would be the most serious injury of his 17 year NBA career.
