Pick Update

New, comments

A bad day for the Wolves sometimes means a good one for the Wolves' picks. The bright spot with MIN losing to SAC, combined with the Wizards victory, is that MIN moved to the second worst record. The second position improves our lottery odds of getting a better pick as demonstrated by its expected value.

MIN @ DAL
MIN @ OKC
BOS @ MIN
CHI @ MIN
MIA @ MIN
MIN @ MEM
MIN @ NJ
PHX @ MIN
MIN @ DEN
MIN @ PHX
HOU @ MIN

Also, HOU edged UTA, and pushed them down to 11th in the West. Tomorrow the Jazz have a back-to-back to face the rested Grizzlies in Memphis, but I'd love to see them win.
