They could lose and still get into the playoffs with a win over Carolina next Sunday in Atlanta . But the Saints have won their last six at home, making this a complete toss-up.

    The Black Country outfit would surely have been in an even worse position without Evans, however, and losing him during the January transfer window would surely be nothing other than an absolute disaster for the Baggies. The West Brom boss at the time, Tony Pulis , refused to do business because he did not have a replacement. If we can keep Jonny, of course we'll give him the deal we could possibly go to in terms of length and the financial side, but that might not be the whole thing for Jonny.

    The focus right now is to just build off of what they did well against NY which if you listen to the players, is in greater abundance than areas in need of fixing. The Celtics rank third in blocks allowed per game (4.0) while the Knicks rank 20th (5.1).
