Can someone explain what happened? Did we lose big time with that Memphis win? Still have lotto pick?
The 14th pick would have been guaranteed with a MEM loss since they would have fallen to 10th (with a POR vs PHO play-in), but things are still good since POR won. MEM now needs to beat POR twice to make the playoffs - and get the 16th pick; while POR just needs to win once - which puts us at 14.
Since we were never going to be able to do better than 14, I think every Cs fan would take this as a win. Going into the bubble, I imagine most everybody thought MEM would hold on to the 8th spot and need to be beat twice. I do feel for PHO, though. They were amazing - something to build on for next season, I guess.
