It's a bit obvious that this year the Western conference is weaker. Last year it took 97 points to get the 8th seed and the final western conference playoff berth. What will it take this year. I've seen some fans say 90 will be enough, and I don't buy that at all. What do you guys think?

EDIT: I wanted to make it more choice specific (90, 91, 92, and so on but that would leave too many options)

Lol this thread is a hit.

I just don't see how 90 points is what's necessary. Just cause Minnesota is projected to get 90.5, bubble teams suddenly think getting in will be easier than expected.
