A loss by Memphis, Phoenix and San Antonio

Portland gets the No. 9 seed with ...

A combined two losses from Phoenix, San Antonio or Memphis

A win, combined with a Memphis loss and a Portland loss

Phoenix gets the No. 9 seed with ...

A win, combined with a Memphis loss or a Portland loss

Next Game: Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns | Thursday, 4 p.m. ET

NBA Betting – Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets Game 3

How does that saying go about playing with fire and getting burned? Well, that’s just what the Denver Nuggets are doing in the Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. Maybe the Nuggets need to fall behind three games to one in the series since that’s when they play their best. If they want to do that, though, they need to win Game 3 on Tuesday night since no team in the history of the league has overcome a 3-0 series deficit. The Nuggets aren’t going to quit and neither is LeBron and Co. They got a dagger triple from Anthony Davis at the horn to subdue Denver in Game 2 to take a commanding lead in the series.
