After the Kings first terrible run this season, I said to a coworker that they can't afford two of those to be comfortable in the playoffs. TUrns out to be very true. To be safely in the playoffs, which in the west means at the top of the conference, you simply can not have more than one bad stretch of more than 4 or 5 games.

In the West there are the top 3, the bottom 3, and everyone in between is on the fringe.
