Tonight’s games will have an impact on the standings as 4 of the top 5 teams play against teams pushing for a better playoff spot. If, and this is a big if, the Spurs beat the Clippers, and the Nets beats the Nuggets and the Grizzlies beat Houston, then Memphis moves into 4th by percentage points and would only be 1/2 game behind the Clippers. The Clippers then go to Houston the next night for a back-2-back while Memphis goes to Minnesota. How will the standings be come April?
