PBT Extra: Which team gets final playoff spot out West, Thunder or Pelicans?

20 Comments

The Pelicans will not go away.

At points in the past few weeks, it has seemed like Oklahoma City would run off and hide with the last playoff spot in the West. However, as of Wednesday, New Orleans and Oklahoma City were tied (NO has the tie breaker), although the Thunder are one game up in the loss column.

So who gets the spot? That’s what Jenna Corrado and I discuss in the latest PBT Extra. The Thunder have a slightly easier schedule, and they get Kevin Durant back to go with Russell Westbrook, all that makes them the favorites. But Anthony Davis and the Pelicans will not go quietly.

Also we discuss who I would prefer to have these playoffs, Davis or Westbrook? Flip a coin.
