Denver ball in a tie game with 4.4 seconds left, and will have a chance to win it.

So what are the implications of this game? If Denver wins what happens? Who plays who in the playoffs?

Heat and Raptors are also heading to OT, as the Bucks watch nervously.

Westbrook averaging a triple double is definitely another point (no pun intended) in OKC’s favor when it comes to keeping George, which sucks for us. Hard to walk away from a guy who can dominate like that and make history in a way that we've never seen. But let's remain hopeful. There are legitimate reasons for him to sign with the Lakers. Magic and Rob just have to be exquisite salesmen in that pitch meeting.


And Westbrook did it tonight only taking 9 shots.

Anyone please before the game is over? I know Twolves get eliminated if they lose but who does Denver play if they win? And who gets eliminated if Twolves win?

The winner of this game is in, and the loser is out. Still have to determine the final seedings.

Miami by 6 in OT over Toronto with just under 2 minutes left. If Miami holds on, here's what happens: there will be a drawing between Miami and Milwaukee, so Phoenix would at least have a chance to get Milwaukee's pick. Ironically, Phoenix already has Miami's pick, by the way.

Mike Malone is an idiot. They keep posting up Jokic, and Gibson is eating his lunch. It's just not working. I know Gibson has 5 fouls, but these possessions are too big to be counting on stupid play types.

Two clutch FT's for Wiggins. Wolves by 4 with 14.6 left. Denver needs a score here coming out of the timeout.

Wolves hold on and get into the playoffs. Miami did, indeed, win in OT, so now there's a 50/50 chance that Milwaukee loses its 1st round pick.

So Miami won and Milwaukee might lose their pick. That's what you get for losing over and over trying to dodge the Cavs.

Yep. 50/50 shot. Comes down to a drawing.

So after all this tank watching, we end up with the following:

25th pick via Cleveland
10th pick to Philly (barring miracle lottery draw).

Someone needs a QFTOs about Philly/Boston bragging about our pick and ending up with a "just whatever" pick. Obviously, time will tell if their 10th pick ends up being a Paul George/Gordon Hayward/Kawhi type of surprise, but I'm content with it.

Besides, I consider Kuz & Hart our lottery pick for next season

With our luck these last 4 years in the draft, that 25th pick is gonna be another gem. I can feel it.

Just a matter of position. This year, priority seems to be backup point guard, Center, or backup wing player.

God we need a back up PG bad, any guys around this pick area that could be a sleeper? He needs to be a distributor type PG.

Lakers finish at the likely 10th spot in the draft with their pick whomever it's going to.

The other side of it, is looking at the final records. Had we won 40 games this season, we'd be in the same spot.

Where'd you get your numbers?
How would we get the 4th pick?
