I'm pinning my hopes on the Bulls beating Brooklyn. Now that Dwayne Wade is out, Rondo is unencumbered and can actually turn the Bulls into a winning team. Bulls can sweep the Nets.

The Lakers beat San Antonio in San Antonio.  There really is a God and she has a remarkable sense of humor.

The Magic Number vs Lakers is now 1.


The Suns are getting obliterated by GSW, so that number will remain at 2.

All we need is a win vs Bkln in Boston and have Chicago beat them once in their home and home. Then it doesn't matter what Phoenix does. It was announced today that DWade is coming back very soon for the Bulls when he was expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Lakers are out of the running. PHX will probably lose out and finish 22-60. If the Bulls can't help us Saturday then we will help ourselves Monday by handing the Nets loss number 61.

will,

Good point. This loss by Brooklyn knocked the Lakers out of it. Their Magic Number was 1 before tonight. Now it's 0

Don't look now but Phoenix is leading OKC 71-48 at the half.  A lot of time to go in the game but not many teams overcome 23 point deficits after halftime.

Magic number could be ZERO after tonight.

Phoenix beating OKC in Phoenix 71-48 at halftime. Booker has all 71 (just kidding).

Incredibly OKC didn't cut into that 23 point halftime lead at all and still leads 95-72 entering the fourth quarter.

Looks like we can relax.  No way Suns lose this one now.

3 1/2 minutes into the 4th and Phx hasn't scored. Lead is 15.

NOT relaxed.

Chris doesn't know what he is talking about. There are only 14 balls. We have been assigned 250 of the 1000 4-ball combinations of those 14 balls.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_draft_lottery

Process


The lottery is normally held during either the third or fourth week of May.

To determine the winner, fourteen ping pong balls numbered 1–14 are placed in a standard lottery machine and four balls are randomly selected from the lot. Just as in most traditional lotteries, the order in which the numbers are drawn is not important. That is, 1-2-3-4 is considered to be the same as 4-3-2-1. There are a total of 1,001 combinations (or 14! / (10! x 4!)). Of these combinations, one outcome is disregarded and the remaining outcomes are distributed among the 14 non-playoff NBA teams. The combination 11-12-13-14 (in any order that those numbers are drawn) is not assigned and is ignored if drawn; this has never occurred in practice.

In the event a lottery pick is traded to another team, the record of the original team (whose pick it was before the trade) still determines eligibility for the lottery, and assignment of chances.
Since 2005, with 30 NBA teams, 16 qualify for the playoffs and the remaining 14 teams enter in the draft lottery. These 14 teams are ranked in reverse order of their regular season record and are assigned the following number of chances

250 combinations, 25.0% chance of receiving the #1 pick
199 combinations, 19.9% chance
156 combinations, 15.6% chance
119 combinations, 11.9% chance
88 combinations, 8.8% chance
63 combinations, 6.3% chance
43 combinations, 4.3% chance
28 combinations, 2.8% chance
17 combinations, 1.7% chance
11 combinations, 1.1% chance
8 combinations, 0.8% chance
7 combinations, 0.7% chance
6 combinations, 0.6% chance
5 combinations, 0.5% chance

Another good reason to make sure you attribute. I'd look pretty stupid if I posted that like it was my own thought.

Is it too soon to be looking at how the Nets will be NEXT season? I guess it is but let's hope they make some real dumb off-season moves and stink to the high heavens next year too!
