In short, no one can clinch or be elimiated this week, but the results could set up a situation where everything in the West is known after the next round.
This week will start and end with LA and Utah in playoff position. Austin needs to win in Seattle if they want to push the Warriors. If Utah can take care of business in New York, they’ll be nearly locked into the postseason. The Legion missed their best shot last week in the mountains. A loss to LA would put them on the tip of the elimination ledge. Speaking of LA, they could look to wrap up both their playoff spot and top seed in the West next week if they win in San Diego. Houston and Seattle met elimination last weekend.
