New, comments

Only seven games remain in the Pistons' season and there's a big chance to move up in the tank standings on Friday night.

THURSDAY

As Sean mentioned on Thursday, there were no games with tank implications.

FRIDAY

Pistons at Nets (7:30 p.m. ET)

The Pistons have won all three regular season games, so the Nets are due for one, right? They'll have to overcome their 29-point blow-out loss to the enigma that is the New York Knicks.

Root for: Nets

Kings at Warriors (10:30 p.m. ET)

The Warriors look to bounce back after an understandable 21-point loss on the road to the Spurs on Wednesday, the night after an exciting overtime finish on Tuesday. This will be a tough one for the Kings, who have lost the previous three vs. the Warriors this season.

Root for: Kings (tied with Pistons)

Mavericks at Lakers (10:30 p.m. ET)

This would be the first time in Dallas' 33-year history they sweep the Lakers if they win. They can't win.

Root for: Lakers (2 games up)

Pelicans at Jazz (9 p.m. ET)

The Jazz are also a sneaky tanking team that the Pistons could catch with seven games to play. They have lost five straight.

Root for: Jazz (4 games up)

76ers at Celtics (7:30 p.m. ET)

The Celtics have lost six straight while the 76ers are back to losing after their win against the Pistons.

Root for: Celtics (4 games up)

Now, your tanking thoughts.
