    Beating the Celtics ... maybe the lottery bounces will favour teams that try hard 'til the finish.
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.

    Bloody hell....

    Nets were up 95-89 with 2:26 left versus Heat - and they lose 101-98.

    As we wind down the final few games of the season, the top 3 picks seem set, but there's a big group bunching up for picks #4-9. The teams have 4-7 games left. I'm curious the order everybody thinks those 6 teams will finish, as we gaze into crystal balls...

    I looked at the remaining schedule for each of the 6 teams and classified games as 'should win' / 'should lose' / 'toss up'. Here's where the records 'should' end up:

    #4 pick: Sacramento - 20 wins, 1/4/0 = 21 wins
    #5 pick: Cleveland - 20 wins, 1/5/1 = 21-22 wins
    #6 pick: Toronto - 22 wins, 0/2/2 = 22-24 wins
    #7 pick: New Jersey (would go to Portland) - 22 wins, 0/3/1 = 22-23 wins
    #8 pick: Golden State (would go to Utah) - 22 wins, 1/4/1 = 23-24 wins
    #9 pick: Detroit - 22 wins, 0/3/3 = 22-25 wins

    As of today, I'm projecting Toronto to finish with the #6 pick, meaning they could pick 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th... here's hoping for some lottery luck!

    If new jersey wins we know it's rigged.
    Was thinking this myself ...

    New Jersey is the one team that the NBA needs to be competitive as soon as possible.
