Early morning of heart attack in the NBA with a shot by Caris LeVert for the Brooklyn Nets in the last second of the game against the Portland Trail Blazers that ended up crashing against the rim and that allows the Oregon team to finish eighth in the West and face in the Play-In next Saturday about Memphis Grizzlies that had previously run over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Thus, the best team in the bubble is left out of the competition, Phoenix suns, who finished the competition with 8 wins in 8 games and yesterday swept the Dallas Mavericks in such a way that Devin Booker barely played 30 minutes.

They are also eliminated, for the first time in 22 years, San antonio spurs Gregg Popovich, who yesterday lost to the Utah Jazz 118-112.

PLAY-IN TIMETABLE

Saturday, 8:30 p.m.: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Memphis Grizzlies
Sunday, 10:30 p.m.: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Memphis Grizzlies (if necessary).

Thus, the Los Angeles Lakers already know that they will face the Blazers or the Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs. Logically, having finished eighth (and having a squad) the Blazers are favorites. By winning the first game they would already be in the playoffs; if they lost it, they would still have the second on Sunday to get into.

Thus, the Grizzlies would need to beat the Blazers both games to get in.
