Random NBA Fan’s Week 12 Prediction Results

Before the start of the season, I made predictions for all 1,230 games.  For Week 12 (Monday, January 12 through Sunday, January 18), I correctly predicted just 23 of the 48 games that were played and had a sub-.500 record for the second time this season.  But despite finishing below .500 and getting every game that involved the Los Angeles Clippers (3), Portland Trail Blazers (3) and Washington Wizards (4) wrong, I did correctly predict every game involving the Charlotte Hornets (2), Dallas Mavericks (3), Indiana Pacers (3), Milwaukee Bucks (1), New York Knicks (1) and Utah Jazz (3).

Random NBA Fan’s Week 5 Prediction Results

Before the start of the season, I made predictions for all 1,230 games.  For the month of November, I correctly predicted 134 of the 222 games that were played.  For Week 5 (Monday, November 24 through Sunday, November 30) of the season, I correctly predicted 29 of 51 games.  Unfortunately, my predictions for all four games that the Atlanta Hawks played were wrong.  However, I correctly predicted the results of every game played by seven teams during Week 5—Boston Celtics (2), Denver Nuggets (3), Miami Heat (2), New York Knicks (4), Oklahoma City Thunder (2), San Antonio Spurs (3) and Utah Jazz (3).

Random NBA Fan’s Week 4 Prediction Results

Before the start of the season, I made predictions for all 1,230 games.  Through four weeks, I have correctly predicted the results of 124 of the 197 games that have been played.  For Week 4 (Monday, November 17 through Sunday, November 23), I correctly predicted just 29 of the 52 games that were played, which was the result of correctly predicting each game for only three teams—Portland Trail Blazers (3), Utah Jazz (3) and Washington Wizards (3)—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.
