I am definitely watching the CAPS game tonight but I am going to have a close eye on these games:
Washington @ Cleveland (obviously): I actually think this is going to be a tough game for the Wiz tonight regardless of who plays. The CAVS have been playing better and Baron Davis is still dangerous. Don’t forget we are 3-36 on the road and the CAVS have to be a little bitter about us snapping our winless road record against them. It is the CAVS last home game so I am sure they will want to win the last one for the fans (much like the WIZ vs. Boston). I could see the CAVS stealing one against us.
Miami @ Toronto: I see no possible way Spoelstra plays the BIG 3 tonight. They already have the 2 seed locked up, and if one of them were to get injured in a meaningless game, it would be awful. We all know Miami’s backups suck, especially because big Z will probably be suspended because he was ejected the other night. Last home game in Toronto, against a Heat team that will not care at all, Toronto takes it.
Nets @ Bulls: Chicago already has the 1 seed in the east locked up, but they could still be playing for home court advantage throughout the playoffs. I am not sure what they will do here. Do they go for home court advantage in the NBA championship or do they give their guys some rest and avoid injury before a deep post season run. If the Bulls rest all their guys, it could still be a game but I would give the edge to the NETS. If the Bulls play their guys, Chicago takes it.
Lakers @ Kings: Lakers still have playoff seeding to play for but who knows what Phil Jackson will pull. Bynum going down last night could scare them into resting their guys. Right now it’s a 3 way race for the 2 seed between Lakers, Dallas, and OKC. Both the Dallas, and OKC games will be done before the lakers game so they will know where they stand going into the game. If Dallas loses to the Bucks, the Lakers have the 2 spot locked up and I bet they rest their players. If Dallas wins, I guess it's up to Phil how much homecourt advantage matters against Dallas. Could be the last game in Sacramento for the Kings, so they have some extra motivation to win. I still think the Lakers take it regardless of who plays for them.
