Celtics turn attention to NBA Draft, improve lottery odds with loss

Celtics turn attention to NBA Draft, improve lottery odds with loss




Like they did 56 other times in 2013-14, the Celtics (25-57) lost Wednesday night. It was their season finale, but most in attendance were brimming with positivity with the C's improving their chances at landing a top pick in this June's seemingly loaded draft.

With Wednesday's loss to Washington and Utah's victory over the Timberwolves, the Celtics now have a 10.4 percent chance at landing the top overall pick when the NBA Draft Lottery takes place on May 20. The C's also now have a 33.4 percent chance at landing a top 3 pick. The Celtics entered Wednesday night with a 29.1 percent chance at a top 3 pick.
