Celtics drop last game of the season, where do they stand in the lottery?

Boston ended their season with a 118-102 loss at home to the Wizards. The Celtics played well, the lack bigs has hurt the Celtics in the final games, but the bigs played hard like the Celtics have all year. Kelly Olynyk scored a team-high 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting, despite being in foul trouble. Jeff Green added 20 points, while Phil Pressey had nine points and 10 assists.


As for the lottery following the loss. The Celtics are tied with the Jazz for the 4th spot.

ESPN Boston

The Celtics and Jazz will split 207 ping-pong ball combinations with a random drawing to see who gets the leftover combo (and the higher pick in the event neither vault into the top 3 spots). Both teams will own roughly 33.7 percent chance at a top-3 pick and a 10.4 percent chance at the No. 1 overall pick. Boston can pick no lower than eighth in June's draft.

I'll have more on the game and draft later tonight.

  1. I hope it's worth the tank job this team pulled.
