Cleveland Cavaliers win tiebreaker with Phoenix, will enter NBA Draft Lottery in second spot
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cleveland Cavaliers claimed their first major victory of the offseason.
With chairman Dan Gilbert watching in New York, the Cavs, who finished 19-63 during the first year without LeBron James, won the tiebreaker -- a blind draw -- with the Phoenix Suns. This win catapults them into the No. 2 spot heading into the NBA Draft Lottery on May 14. Where they pick in the draft will be officially determined that night.
No matter what happened with the blind drawing, the Cavs were going to have equal odds with Phoenix and New York of winning the lottery. They have a 14 percent chance of that. But the drawing ensures Cleveland won’t pick any lower than No. 6 -- a big development considering how this draft class is viewed. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
