Random NBA Fan’s Week 3 Prediction Results

Before the start of the season, I made predictions for all 1,230 games.  Through three weeks, I have correctly predicted the results of 95 of the 145 games that have been played.  For the third consecutive week I correctly predicted the result of each game played by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In addition to correctly predicting all three games that the Timberwolves played during Week 3 (Monday, November 10 through Sunday, November 16), I also correctly predicted each game for the Boston Celtics (2), Cleveland Cavaliers (3), Dallas Mavericks (3), Memphis Grizzlies (3), New Orleans Pelicans (3), Philadelphia 76ers (2) and Washington Wizards (2), which led to me correctly picking 31 of the 48 games played for the week.

The seventh seed in the Western Conference playoffs will be up for grabs when the Dallas Mavericks visit the Memphis Grizzlies in today’s NBA Game of the Day. This will be the fourth and final meeting between these Southwest Division rivals. Dallas won each of the first three games by double digits and can sweep the season series over the Grizzlies for the first time since winning all four meetings during the 2007-2008 season.

The Mavericks and Grizzlies come into the final night of the regular season with identical 49-32 records. Both teams will be seeking win 50 and both of them will be trying to avoid a first-round matchup with the overall top-seeded San Antonio Spurs. Dallas and Memphis were both swept by the Spurs and both would rather take their chances with the West’s second seed (which will be either the Los Angeles Clippers or Oklahoma City Thunder) than face San Antonio in the first round.

The winner of tonight’s matchup will have a 50-win season and avoid opening the playoffs in San Antonio. The loser will fall just short of the 50-win plateau and have to open the playoffs against a Spurs team that can finish the regular season with a single-season-franchise-tying 63 wins with a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers tonight.

The Memphis Grizzlies (48-32) will try to clinch the lone remaining playoff spot when they visit the Phoenix Suns (47-33) in today’s NBA Game of the Day. This will be the fourth and final meeting of the season for these two playoff hopefuls. The Grizzlies won the first three meetings and can sweep the season series over Phoenix for the first time in franchise history with a victory tonight.

Memphis, who has a one-game advantage over the Suns for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference playoffs, can extend that lead to an insurmountable two games—with just one game remaining—with a victory tonight. For the Grizzlies it is really simple: Win and their in.

A win will not only punch Memphis’ postseason ticket, but a win will keep the Grizzlies’ hopes of moving up the Western Conference standings alive. If Memphis closes the season out with two wins, the Grizzlies could possibly move as high as sixth.

While Memphis will be trying to secure its spot in the playoffs and possibly improve its seeding, the Suns will be trying to keep their postseason hopes alive. Phoenix has to figure out a way to solve its Grizzlies problem tonight to make Wednesday night’s game against the Sacramento Kings meaningful.

With a victory over Memphis, the Suns can move into a dead heat with the Grizzlies.  However, even with a win tonight the Suns would still be on the outside looking in since Memphis owns the head-to-head tiebreaker.  But a win tonight is the only thing that can keep Phoenix’s playoff hopes alive.

If Phoenix wins tonight, the Suns would remain in the playoff hunt and the final playoff spot in the ultra-competitive Western Conference would remain open until the final night of the season.
