Playoff Chaos In The West!

Playoff Chaos In The West!


Now that March Madness is over, we can finally stop pretending we know anything about college basketball and go back to arguing about the NBA like civilized children.

Here’s what we've got today:

  • Lines of the week: The NBA Playoff race heats up
  • Game Watch: Denver Nuggets at Phoenix Suns (NBA)
  • NBA News: Playoff Implications

Lines of the week:

The NBA's Western Conference playoffs are like a game of musical chairs, but with basketball teams instead of chairs.

There are eight teams vying for the last few spots Clippers and Warriors battling for 5th, while the Lakers and Pelicans duke it out for 7th.

The Timberwolves and Thunder are nipping at their heels, while the Mavericks and Jazz are hanging on for dear life.

With only a few days left in the regular season, it's anyone's game.

NBA Lines: April 6, 2023

Game Watch: Denver Nuggets at Phoenix Suns (NBA)

The Suns are hot, they've won six in a row, and it's not just because of Phoenix's notoriously scorching weather.

They're facing off against the Nuggets, who are fourth in the West with 54.9 points per game in the paint, led by Nikola Jokic's impressive 15.9.

But Phoenix has Kevin Durant, who can take over any game, and Chris Paul, who's been hitting 3-pointers like he's trying to launch them into space.

The Suns took the Nuggets down in their last matchup, and they'll be looking to keep the heat on in this one.

The odds for this game are as follows:

  • Denver Nuggets (+7.5)
  • Phoenix Suns (-7.5)
  • Point spread: Denver +7.5 (-110), Phoenix -7.5 (-110)
  • Over/Under: O223.0 (-110), U223.0 (-110)

Who will be in the West's play-in tournament?

Too close to call.
