It's pretty simple though.

 

7 and 8 have two chances to win one game and get in. 9 and 10 have to win two straight.

I don't know why this made me giggle so much

Nearly everything about this season has been a grueling challenge for the Los Angeles Lakers, so nobody in a gold jersey really seemed surprised when Anthony Davis committed a baffling foul that allowed Minnesota's Mike Conley to snatch a playoff berth from their hands with 0.1 seconds on the regulation clock.

I didn't watch much of Bulls/Raps, but I can't imagine a game where a team gaks up a 19-point lead and misses 18 FTs was a "good" game.  But OKC/NO?  Whooo, that didn't disappoint; best game of the play-in so far even if Night 1 was crazier.  If I could evict teams from the playoffs, I'd pitch the Clippers out on their ass and put NO back in anyway, just because they're fun to watch, even without Zion.  Really want to see OKC run Minnesota too and then go to Denver.

The NBA officially doesn't count the play-in as playoff games. For instance, LeBron didn't add thirty points to his career playoff scoring total. But he also didn't add 30 points to his career regular season scoring total. It's limbo.

Anyway... Man Zion is becoming one of the biggest conundrums in sports. They aren't good enough to win without him, he likely has no major trade value, they owe him all the money... And on those rare occasions he actually plays basketball, he's borderline MVP level and they look like a serious title contender.

As an Aussie, I'm 100% here for Josh Giddey; Play In GOAT.

Kid is TWENTY 😮 Doesn't turn 21 until October. That's insane.

OKC has the youngest team in the league. The fact that they have a shot Friday to get into the playoffs is absurd.

I've never seen so many folks on Twitter seriously advocating for a nine-year-old girl to get punched in the face until now.

The only thing I’ll say in response is I hope this doesn’t lead to other players kids (or more likely grown assed men) doing that at other games. The amount of attention ESPN gave her during the game, and that they continue to give her suggests it won’t be a one time incident. Nor was it cute.

Hopefully it doesn't become a "thing", but it's a little girl trying to help out daddy's team. Gotta love that. Plus, if a kid screaming causes you to miss free throws, you suck at free throws.

How many players have little girls? All but this one know how to behave at a game, and not make a spectacle of themselves. It’s not worthy of applause or admiration.

Plus they don’t suck at free throws when they made 79% during the season. Clearly the girl screaming like she was a murder victim in Scream 6 threw them off.

If you've made it to the NBA, you've most likely played through junior high, high school and college basketball. At all of those levels, fans go to all kinds of great lengths to distract you while shooting free throws. If a little girl screaming makes you miss, that's on you.

It's always interesting how when little girls do little girl things, grown men can't handle it.
