I'd like the Suns to get the 8th seed, one so we can kill them in the 1st round, and secondly because seeing the Mavs fail would be funny :lol:

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I think its 7 more games. Thats with a combination of Laker wins and Dallas losses since they are in 8th spot now.

So if lakers win 5 and Dallas losses 2 i think we are in.

But im not to sure.

no the if the lakers wanna clinch the playoff spot, the 9th seed which in this case is the suns have to lose 4 games and the lakers need to win 4 games, or suns lose 5 and lakers win 5. its either one of those, but im 100% that the 9th seed has to have no chance against the lakers.

In this case the Lakers Magic number to clinch a playoff spot is 4, the team chasing, trying to ruin that is the Suns, since the Suns are second in the Pacific behind the Lakers. Winning their division means clinching a guaranteed playoff spot no lower than the 4th seed. That said the magic number being four, means a combination of Laker Wins and Suns losses totaling four will result in lakers winning their division and clinching a playoff spot.

does the magic number really matter?
the lakers are most likely going to be the top seed in the west.. but if the team do a complete 180 and end up messing up severely, they will surely still make the playoffs.
