NBA Draft Lottery 2019: How to watch on TV and streaming live online

For the first time in a long time, Kings fans don't have much reason to tune into the NBA draft lottery.

That doesn't mean you shouldn't watch, though.

The Kings had their most successful season in 13 years, and would normally have the worst odds for the top pick of any of the 14 non-playoff teams that form the lottery, but alas, that selection won't belong to them.

If the Kings somehow land the No. 1 overall selection -- a minuscule 0.5 percent chance -- it will be sent to the 76ers as a last remnant of the 2015 Nik Stauskas salary dump.

If the Kings' selection falls anywhere between the No. 2 and No. 14 picks, it goes to the Celtics. Ugh.

So, Kings fans, for the first time in forever, you do NOT want to see the Kings logo come up for the No. 1 pick. That would just be cruel.

Here's how you can watch the 2019 NBA draft lottery on TV and streaming live online:

Kawhi Leonard's Game 7 buzzer-beater sends Raptors to East finals vs. Bucks

Kawhi Leonard brought something to Toronto it lacked the last few years: A killer instinct.

In Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, the Raptors star showed it.

With 4.2 seconds remaining and the game tied, Leonard took the inbounds pass, ran to the corner and hit a fadeaway jump-shot that bounced on the rim FOUR times before it fell in, giving the Raptors a dramatic 92-90 victory.

It's the second series-ending shot of the postseason, joining Damian Lillard's walk-off 3-pointer against Oklahoma City in the first round.

With the victory, Toronto advances to take on the No. 1 seeded Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference finals. The winner of that series will take on the winner of the Warriors-Blazers Western Conference finals.

Golden State and Portland will begin their series on Tuesday in Oakland, while the Raptors and Bucks will start on Wednesday in Milwaukee.

If the Warriors get through the Blazers, they won't have home-court advantage in the NBA Finals, as both the Bucks and Raptors finished with better regular-season records.

In each of the last four years, the Warriors have held home-court advantage in the NBA Finals.

Joel Embiid takes shot at Warriors after 76ers take 3-1 lead over Nets

It's time to come to terms with the fact that the 3-1 jokes are never going to stop.

The Warriors entered the NBA playoffs as the odds-on favorite to win their third straight NBA championship, and yet all anyone wants to talk about is the 2016 NBA Finals.

Earlier this week, the Breaking T-shirt company trolled the Warriors for blowing a 31-point lead to the Clippers in Game 2 of their first-round series with special shirts. As you probably have figured out, 31 also doubles as 3-1. How clever.

Well, now we can add Joel Embiid to the list of people who continue to bring up the Warriors' collapse in the 2016 NBA Finals.

After the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Brooklyn Nets 112-108 in Game 4 on Saturday to take a 3-1 series lead, Embiid was asked how important the win was and he, of course, had to take a swing at the Warriors.

Don't tempt fate, Joel.

Considering how top-heavy the Eastern Conference is, this might be Embiid's only opportunity to take a shot at the defending champs because it's probably not going to come on the court in June.

After the 76ers' second-round flop in last year's playoffs, you'd think Embiid would be more focused on the task at hand instead of cracking jokes after a narrow win over the upstart Nets.

But after you drop 31 points and pull down 16 rebounds, we guess you can make all the jokes you want.
