Detroit Pistons finish in a tie with 76ers for sixth worst record

The Pistons finish the season in a tie with Philadelphia for the sixth worst record in the NBA. Detroit and the 76ers will split the NBA Draft lottery balls of the No. 6 and No. 7 spots.

Of the 1,000 different combinations the Pistons will get 53 or a 5.3 percent chance of winning the No. 1 overall pick. Detroit’s odds of winning the No. 2 pick are 6.02 percent and the No. 3 pick are 6.96 percent.

The NBA will hold a drawing on Friday to determine who will pick higher, Detroit or Philadelphia in the event neither team moves up in the lottery.

Detroit fell down to the No. 6 spot thanks to a win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday in the final game of the regular season. The Pistons won four of their final six.

The win over the Timberwolves cost the Pistons 37 ping-pong balls or an extra 3.7 percent chance of landing the top pick. A loss to Minnesota on Wednesday would have put Detroit in a three-way tie for the fourth worst record with Washington and Golden State, which both won on Wednesday.
