Yep and as a Bulls fan I'm lovin' it. Maybe Garnett can now hurt his knee. Then the Bulls could get the number one seed.

The Lakers beat The Spurs too. I still think the Lakers have been on cruise control. They are just waiting for the playoffs to start. The key as usual for the Lakers is Andrew Bynum's health. He could get injured at any time. That's just the way he is.

They did that last year as well.  Seems to be the LA way now, get by in the regular season and turn it on in the post season.  Not a bad strategy if the team can pull it off

But last year they were the #1 seed in the West and not one of the Western teams came seriously close to overtaking them last year. And they also completed one of their goals last year which was to finish with a better record than Boston which helped them immensely in the Finals.

Right now, Lakers are the 3 seed, but I can see them turning it on before the end of the season to move up the chain.  They are only 6 games out of the #1 seed with 18 games remaining, and only 1/2 -1 game behind the #2 seed.  They can still win the #1 seed, and in the East, you have 2 teams within 3 games of the #1 seed right now

Watch it. Things like this teams turn it around and then look back at and say "Well it was this loss here and we got everything out in the open..." as they hoist the trophy

No way they win the one seed. The Spurs would have to collapse and go 13-6 with the Lakers going undefeated.  That's half the number of losses they have in the last 63 games. Not gonna happen.

Keep in mind, the Spurs currently have a top 5 all-time record at this point in the season.

Very true.  It was after a couple of embarrassments earlier in the year, including the Lebron coach bump, when they went on a huge winning streak while slaughtering most of their opponents. A team like this needs adversity at this point in the season.

Being the #1 seed doesnt mean anything come playoff time either.  Its doubtful the Lakers get the #1 seed, but they can easily get the #2 seed

Remember, last year the Cavs had the #1 seed and lost to the #4 seed in the second round.

I know they don't need the one. And even though I'm a hardcore Spurs fan, I still say the Lakers are the favorites in the West. I'm just saying the Lakers won't get top seed now. Spurs would have to shut down, which they will do somewhat, but not quite yet. They'll clinch home court, then slow down.  Their record is just ridiculously good right now.

In order to be like that, a team would have to show character and grit first, 2 things the Heat have not shown.

I'm not saying they will lose it, saying it is possible though, as the Lakers seem to always manage to turn it on when it matters, thats what they always seem to do in the post season.

The Spurs/Lakers should be the West Finals matchup easily, but I see the Lakers taking them easily, because they are not "really trying" right now, they are on cruise control waiting for the last 5 laps to come about to put the pedal to the metal

No character or "grit" ever during the NBA regular season. Just no point to it.
