(23-54) Dallas Mavericks vs. Orlando Magic (24-54)
As far as NBA Lottery implications go, this is a huge game.
Both Dallas and Orlando have 54 losses and Dallas has one extra win than the Magic. Somehow, the Mavs have managed to retain respectability, in my mind, while the Magic lost all of its weeks ago, if not, months.
Obviously, the two teams are separated by just half a game. Currently, the Magic holds down the fourth spot in the Lottery Standings, while the Mavs are fifth. The difference is 3.1 percent of the total ping-pong balls.
And while Orlando can currently pick no worse than seventh, Dallas could fall to eighth if three teams better than it get lucky.
When you’re talking about the difference between potentially landing the top pick versus the second, or the top pick versus the eighth, three percent makes a big difference.
It’s why this game makes absolutely no sense. It makes no sense for either team to try and win this game and it makes no sense for the NBA to play it as it will play it on Wednesday night.
The system is broken and we’re going to continue to get final months of the regular season like we’ve had — total garbage.
There are so many bad teams in the NBA; it seems like every night I’m just checking the Lottery Standings instead of caring about who’s actually winning games.
But this is life in the NBA. It’s interesting, but you just have to think it could be a lot better, with more competition, more clubs giving professional opportunities to youngsters who want to forgo the college game, and competition ready to get promoted and relegate these terrible teams that aren’t in it for anything other than a draft pick. In fact, we wouldn’t need the draft at all.
Unfortunately, the guys with the most money in the world running the league, don’t want to sacrifice any of it to create a better product, and likely get richer in the end. Just get me to the finish line!
