There were 12 NBA teams in action last night. Here are 10 things you should know:

2016 DRAFT PICK WATCH

1. The Nets (11-28) were idle last night. The Celtics own the Nets unconditional first-round draft pick. As of today, the bottom of the league standings are as follows:

6. Suns 13-27
5. Pelicans 12-26
4. Timberwolves 12-28
3. Nets 11-28
2. Lakers 9-32
1. 76ers 4-37


2. The Celtics (20-19) were idle last night. As of today, Boston is projected to receive the following picks: 3, 14, 20, 31, 34, 48, 52, 58.

3. The Mavericks (22-18) were idle and remain the fifth seed in the West. However, the Grizzlies cut Dallas' lead to a half-game with their win over the Pistons, and the Rockets are only one game back. 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 ended today as they would be projected to receive the 20th pick in the draft.

4. The Raptors beat the Magic 106-103.
5. The 76ers lost to the Bulls 115-111.
