Race to the Bottom
With the season quickly winding down, it's shaping up as a four-team lottery ball race with the Kings, Wizards, Clippers and Grizzlies all "hot" in the sense that they've continued losing at a solid rate.
1. Kings (15-55) 2-8 in the last 10.
2. Wizards (16-56) 2-8 in the last 10. Lost last night to Chicago.
3. Clippers (17-54) 2-8 in the last 10. Lost last night to Boston.
4. Grizzlies (17-53) 1-9 in the last 10. Lost last night to Miami.
The only "key" game tonight involves 20-50 Oklahoma City, which has hurt its chances for landing home state boy Blake Griffin by going a ice cold 5-5 in the last 10 games. C'mon Oky City, you can lose better than that. The Thunder hosts the Lakers tonight.
It remains to be seen what impact Gilbert Arenas will have on the race. According to what he said yesterday, and we all know that could change, he wants to play in five or six games. Of course, he's not going to play at Memphis, Indiana or Toronto because, well, that just wouldn't be Gilbert-like. Cleveland and Boston? That's more like it.
Meantime, it's interesting to see Antawn Jamison out there busting his tail as he did last night in the close loss to Chicago.
