Here's the pertinet schedule:
10 a.m.: Official Easter Brunch Gorging Kicks Off
12:30 p.m.: Phoenix at Lakers on ABC. Lakers win and they're in. Also, a Lakers win almost seals up seventh. Also, Phoenix may rest Nash, Bell and Marion. If they do, I will shoot Mike D'Antoni with a potato gun.
3 p.m.: San Antonio at Minnesota. Crack open Yahoo!, because it ain't televised. If San Antonio wins, they essentially sew up the 1 seed and home court in the West.
5:30 p.m.: Utah at Dallas. A Dallas win eliminates the Jazz and clinches spots for both LAL and SAC, no matter what happens in those other games.
6 p.m.: NOOCH at Sacramento. The clincher, as I'll refer to it.
7:15 p.m.: A nap induced by post-brunch chocolate gorging and the following sugar crash. Hopefully, the Kings are up big at the half.
8:30 p.m.: Likely celebration on Truxel Road.
Let's hope the Kings can get back on right track at home. Of course, playing well on the road is important in the postseason. But don't ignore home confidence - a split in San Antone or Phoenix is no good if you split right back at home.
LET'S GO KINGS!
