Draft lottery today

Tue., May 20, 2014

They lost often: 67 times for the Milwaukee Bucks, 26 straight times for the Philadelphia 76ers. Now the NBA’s biggest losers have a chance for a huge win. The draft lottery is today ( 5 p.m., ESPN), something some teams appeared to be aiming toward for months during a season that featured plenty of talking about tanking. The winner gets the No. 1 pick in next month’s draft, when an Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker might make this season’s misery worth it. It’s a potential make-or-break night, which is why a program about the results of a random drawing ends up as prime-time lead-in for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. – AP
