The ABC commentators said last week during the Bulls/Orlando game that if the Bulls and Spurs tie with the same record, they will either flip a coin or have a random drawing to see who gets the HCA record should they both make it to the Finals due to their tiebreakers in a number of categories or something like that....very weird, but i never heard of a coin toss for HCA ever....

Really? I thought based on NBA rules the Bulls would get home court because of their pathetically weak division.

yeah i was just reading that on the recap of the game last night but it makes no sense. according to nba.com the bulls should get home court because of their division win %.

now i have to say, the spurs looked pretty good and the lakers did last night, and the spurs rested parker, duncan, mcdyess, and ginobili. bynum going down, who knows with his wrecked knees how long that will be. no spurs reserve played more then 27 minutes, while kobe, odom and fishers corpse played about 36 each, and pau played 41 minutes. the spurs where up with 7 minutes left, that shows the depth and lack of depth.

No, if the Bulls get HCA vs. the Spurs it's because the Spurs decided they didn't want it.

Seriously, didn't you watch last nights game? Any of the previous 6 or so?

Are you still going to cry when the tie-breaker doesn't even matter?

P.S. HCA vs. having a key player go out with a knee injury.....hmmmm.....which would you rather have?

i dont think anyone is crying about having or losing HCA, i think the real issue is more on how they could potentially lose it due to tie breakers. according to nba.com it should go to the bulls based on division win % BUT i am gathering that the tie breaker list they have posted only matters in the same conference. the fact that it goes to a coin flip is just odd.

on the other side, the spurs schedule vs the bulls schedule dont balance out.

Neither the Spurs or the Lakers did themselves any favors with their 5 game losing streaks. Chicago has stayed consistent throughout. So, now we're down to the final night literally....bring on the playoffs!!

well heres ot a spurs win, a bulls loss, a mavs win, a lakers loss, a griz win and a hornets loss. hornets need to lose to the mavs to drop to the 8 seed but i expect the griz to tank to avoid the lakers in the 1st round only to get decimated by the spurs.

Yes I saw last night's game. The Lakers starting lineup had to work hard to beat the Spurs bench.

No one is crying, there's no need for that rude remark.

Fair enough.

Remember, I'm a big big fan of the Spurs and consider them the *best* overall organization in the NBA.

I'm just a Bulls fan first.

So for me, I hope they meet in the finals.
