Anaheim Arsenal: Playoff Seeding Spoilers?

It’s possible — they’re now on a 5-game winning streak after their impressive victory over the Southwest Division-leading Toros. The Arsenal’s remaining games include three games against the Los Angeles D-Fenders (currently vying with the Idaho Stampede for West Division supremacy) and a game against the Utah Flash, who are still on the edge of the playoff bubble. If they win out, they’ll be at .500, but I don’t anticipate that happening. I will say, though, that this last stretch of the season has been way kinder than the start of the season, when I was wondering if the Arsenal would be challenging the Bakersfield Jam for worst record honors.

The D-League Power Rankings do a pretty decent job of breaking down the playoff situation. The games against the D-Fenders are most likely to have an effect only on playoff seeding — however, the game against the Flash (if they are still in contention) may be make-or-break for them. It should be exciting to watch.
