No, it's not because they're playing another meaningless game. Have you noticed how packed the race is for lottery positioning? Lots of teams vying for the coveted ping pong balls. Tonight, we really need NJ to lose and Cleveland to win! No matter what, it looks like there will need to be several coin flips before the dust settles. It's too bad the NJ didn't lose and extra game or two along the way, but oh well.
Go Blazers in the lottery!
