Celtics, Jazz tie for NBA’s fourth-worst record

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On April 16, 2014 @ 11:22 pm In General | No Comments

The Celtics [1]‘ loss combined with a Jazz [2]┬ádouble-overtime win left both teams tied for the NBA’s fourth-worst record.

As a result, the teams split their lottery odds, each receiving a 10.4 percent chance at the No. 1 pick and a 33.5 percent chance at a top-three selection. A coin flip will determine their positioning should neither team end up in the top three on May 20, and the worst-case scenario for the Celtics [1] is the eighth pick in the June 26 draft.

Meanwhile, the Wizards’ victory over the C’s pulled them even with the Nets [3] at 44-38. Since the Celtics [4] also own Brooklyn’s pick, another coin flip later this week will determine if they receive the 17th or 18th pick.
