The Minas Tirith Titans can give up their playoff chase and focus on simply winning some games, because today it became official that they have been mathematically eliminated from postseason contention.
Minas Tirith last appeared in the postseason in 2036. This is their 4th consecutive year missing the playoffs, and in total they have not advanced past the regular season 27 times in their 37-year history. In the last 10 seasons, the Titans have missed the playoffs 5 times.
