    PER is nothing more than a good example of confirmation bias. Its actual superiority over a simple +/- number or European style production index has not been established.

    It sorts by chance to make the playoffs.

    Jazz still make in that scenario.

    I tried to rep you but I must spread some first.

    If you really want to track it you should put the record every day in an excel sheet, and graph it at the end of the season.

    If I understand correctly, out of the 5000 simulated seasons, the Lakers ended up making the playoffs more than the Jazz, even though they're both projected to go 42-40. Maybe that means the Jazz had a few more very good seasons than the Lakers but also had more bad ones while the Lakers were more consistent in the simulations.

    I'm liking the Tankers only have a 90% chance - and that's assuming Curry and Bogut remain healthy.

    Given the injuries piling up in La-La land, it will be impressive if the Lakers can get into the playoffs. But I really hope it doesn't happen.

    Thrilling. That extra week of games is definitely a better outcome than a vastly improved chance at a key piece (PG).
    Mark Cuban is a ****ing sociopath.

    It's down to 87.4% now.

    And where are the Jazz sitting? I can't imagine losing two games in a row helping the chances of making the playoffs.

    I would like to add that the Jazz have played more games than Portland and yet are only two games ahead of them.

    If the Jazz don't close out this month strong I see them missing the playoffs. The games that remain for February are:

    H vs OKC
    A vs Minnesota
    H vs GS
    A vs LAC
    H vs Boston
    H vs Atlanta

    That doesn't look promising. I just hope they at least beat GS to help that pick.

    I just can't see the Jazz winning with Tinsley and Watson. Nobody even has to guard them. It's unheard of. I've never seen a guard in the NBA that you can completely leave wide open and still have that player brick a shot. Never. It's pathetic. I know I'm beating up a dead horse, but I don't think we're getting to the playoffs with dinosaur guards. The Houston game exposed this weakness and I'm very well surprised that we're even close to winning some of these games.
