After 81 games, the Clippers postseason fate has still not been decided. Tonight's game in Sacramento will be the difference between starting the postseason in L.A. or Memphis.

The early games have not gone the way the Clippers would have liked. The Nuggets beat the Suns, and the Grizzlies will almost certainly beat the Jazz (up 14 as I type this). That means the Clippers will face definitely face the Grizzlies in the first round, opening in L.A. if the Clippers win tonight, opening in Memphis if they lose. It also means the Lakers are in the playoffs.
