Quantcast


Only eight teams took the floor across the NBA last night. Here are some things you should know:

2016 DRAFT PICK WATCH

1. The Nets were idle and are 7-16. They still have the fourth worst record in the NBA. The Celtics own the Nets 2016 first-round draft pick.

2. The Timberwolves lost to the Suns 108-101, moving them to 9-14 on the season. With the Jazz also losing to the Thunder, they remain only 1.5 games back of the eighth seed. Minnesota will convey their first-round pick to the Celtics only if it falls between 13-30.  If Minnesota's pick falls between 1-12, they will instead convey their second-round picks in 2016 and 2017. This pick would NOT be conveyed if the season were to end today.

3. The Mavericks were idle and are 13-11, which has them is sole possession of the fifth seed. Dallas will convey their first-round pick to the Celtics only if it falls between 8-30.  If Dallas' pick falls between 1-7, the conditional 2016 pick will become a 2017 first-round pick with the same conditions. This pick would be conveyed if the season were to end today.

ATLANTIC DIVISION STANDINGS WATCH

4. The Raptors beat the 76ers 96-76.
