Yeah, but Spurs are really playing for a Champions League spot and are out of the other competitions, so you have to assume they'll be going hard every matchday.If Spurs and OKC win out, Clips are locked into 8 seed, correct? Would be awesome if Ainge perfectly threads that needle for the 18th pick.
I think, if he plays, he'll still be on a minutes restriction. Give him some first half run then yank him and tell dudes like Hunter to start jacking 3s.should probably rule out Brown if you really want to make double sure. If the Bullets sit Beal, that C's rump lineup would still have a shot.
I think this is right. I'd guess it's just to make sure he doesn't have any rust, given that he just missed a little time.I think, if he plays, he'll still be on a minutes restriction. Give him some first half run then yank him and tell dudes like Hunter to start jacking 3s.
Forward Andre Iguodala (left toe soreness) and center Andrew Bogut (rest) will sit for the Warriors’ game against the Pelicans on Tuesday night.
Golden State had initially planned to rest forward Kevin Durant in New Orleans. But after Durant objected, the team decided to let him play against the Pelicans.
The Warriors are expected to rest a number of players Wednesday in Memphis, which will be Golden State’s final regular-season game. After Sunday’s rout of the Clippers, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters that he hoped to rest most of his rotation players at some point during the back-to-back set.

Clearly you are mistaken. This game is long over. Noboby beats the Grizz. Memphis shooting 73% from 3 pt in the first half and Det is shooting 22%. Clearly that can't correct, it's too far of a spread. Bet the house on Memphis 2nd half points, it's a lock.I wouldn’t reach that assumption. If Detroit starts making shots the game could turn around in a hurry.
