Okay maybe Cole Anthony isn’t a great dunker.
Tonight is probably the most important game left on Houston’s schedule. The Magic have the worst record in the NBA at 13-47. Houston has two more wins. Tonight marks the last time that Houston plays a team in the bottom four, as they have wrapped up their season series with Oklahoma City and Detroit.
Remember that while everyone is stuck on the “the bottom 3 teams have the same odds at a top 4 pick,” it’s been forgotten that the most a team can slip is four spots. That means that the worst pick that Houston can have is seventh. If they move up to second-worst, they will be drafting in the top 6. That’s important, I think.
And for fun, here are the remaining strengths of schedules of the bottom five teams:
Oklahoma City: 21st
Tip-off is at 6pm CT on AT&T SportsNet Southwest
