There are no NBA games today, but we still had a few results – in the random draft tiebreaker for teams with identical records.


  • Pacers
  • Mavericks
  • Grizzlies
  • Lakers


  • Jazz
  • Bulls
  • Spurs
  • Celtics

The Pacers get the No. 11 seed in the lottery, and Jazz get the No. 12 seed. The teams will split the lottery combinations for moving into the top three of the draft, but more importantly, if neither team moves up in the lottery, Indiana will pick ahead of Utah.

The other tied teams now know their picks:

  • The Mavericks 21, Bulls 22
  • Grizzlies 25, Spurs 26
  • Lakers 27 (via Rockets in the Jeremy Lin trade), Celtics 28 (via Clippers for Doc Rivers)
