Raptors playing the Nets in the last game of the season, one of them will have a 23-43 record. If the Warriors lose the next two games they will have an identical 23-43 record and be in a tie for the 7th worst record. This means they'll split the number of ping pong balls between them for the lottery but more importantly, they will be in a coin flip for the 7th or 8th spot should neither of them win the lottery. This gives the Warriors a shot at keeping their pick since it's only 1-7 protected. Otherwise, the pick goes to Utah for the disastrous trade for Marcus Williams. On that note, it's somewhat good news that Larry Riley is out as Warriors GM. Who knows if Bob Myers will do any better but it's good to see the last of the old guard out.
