Enormous Consequences: Utah Jazz, Houston Rockets Hoping To Make Moves - From Our Editors -
The NBA Playoff picture could be cleared up on Wednesday night if the Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns both suffer losses, hence the "enormous consequences."

Steve Nash, Stepping Back And The Brilliance That's Hard To Understand -
Nash has always been a play ahead of everyone on the court. This season, as his role has started to diminish with age, his on-court intelligence and off-court demeanor has kept him and his team going strong. I may not be able to understand why he makes it work, but I sure as hell will be rooting for him to keep it going in the playoffs.

Phoenix Suns vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Pre-Game Chat - Bright Side Of The Sun
Ray: Over the last 10 games, the Thunder are only 5-5. While the losses have been to quality opponents (Clippers twice, Pacers, Heat and Grizzlies), are there any weaknesses they've exposed among the Thunder that particularly concern you?

Zorgon: Yes, there has been a lot of concern. Thunder fans are (or should be) noted as eternal optimists, always seeing the silver lining in every cloud. But with these recent losses, I've seen the same guys who were really excited about our 23 win season start having musings about our ability to finish well in the playoffs. The main problem I see is perfectly highlighted by what happened against the Clippers last night. Over the last couple of years, our offense has regressed to a 2-4 man game. Guys like Collison, Sefolosha, and Perkins don't even have plays drawn up for them anymore....

Would win restore Phoenix Suns fans' thunder?
The Suns are trying. Is anyone buying? At the All-Star break, they were a sorry lot. Their coach was muttering under his breath, cussing in postgame news conferences. The organization seemed lost in a credibility crisis.

The Suns are 7-3 in April and would be in the playoffs if the season ended today after entering the All-Star break with a 14-20 record. Such a dramatic reversal requires improvement from multiple players, and one of the recent unsung heroes is backup point guard Sebastian Telfair.
