Default Draft Position Thread - "the tank tracker"

Well, there's not too much else worth following at this time of year, but the ( maybe soon to be not) Kings have gone 6-4 over their last 10 games, potentially giving up the 4 spot in the draft...dependent on what happens in the last 9 games.



The Kings are now 1 full game ahead of the Raptors.

Raptors 20-53
Kings 21-52


Toronto 20 53 .274 36 14-22 6-31 4-9 12-31 99.3 105.6 -6.3 Lost 4 3-7
Sacramento 21 52 .288 35 10-27 11-25 6-8 12-31 99.3 104.4 -5.1 Won 4 6-4

Remaining games:

TORONTO schedule

vs. MIL
@ CHI
vs. ORL
@ NYK
vs. CLE
@ PHI
vs. NJ
@ MIL
vs. MIA

SACRAMENTO schedule

@ DEN
vs. DEN
vs. UTAH
@ HOU
@ SA
@ MEM
@ GS
vs. OKC

I've been watching this closely, too. Hopefully the Kings can continue their roll.

It's possible but not likely that the Wizards could run up a couple games too.

Minnesota has an absurdly hard schedule going forward, nothing doing there. Cleveland is Cleveland, even with the Miami win they still have no shot at overtaking us.

I would never want my team to intentionally tank (because that is completely lame) but there's nothing to be gained by picking up a couple wins here or there. Even a few % points more towards a #1 or #2 pick would be great.

Good to see that teams have seeding stuff to fight for in our remaining schedule so they'll still be going strong; Milwaukee's looking to edge into the playoffs and Chicago/Miami are fighting it out for the #1 seed so there'll likely be no sitting of the starters/laying off there. NY and PHI are looking to improve their seeding as well.

hopefully Boston will have its seed locked in and rest some players for the 2nd last game

Miami
Cleveland
Charlotte
Detroit

Indiana
Boston
Atlanta

3-6 - We'll finish with the 5th worst record.

nice idea DSWC.

I was hoping maybe the Kings had the tie-breaker, but they won by 3 and we beat them by 6, so I guess not.

Just keep losing baby.

Yeah, SAC has a tougher schedule.

A lot of those teams are still fighting for playoff positioning, and won't rest their players.

Some of our games vs. "elite teams" will probably be easier than usual with player resting.

The tie breaker after head-to-head is not point differential, but division winning percentage. Sacramento has a better in division record, so we lose the tie breaker, and pick first, in the case of a tie. Depending on how the rest of the season goes.

For the record, the tie breakers are as follow:

(1) Division leader wins tie from team not leading a division
(2) Head-to-head won-lost percentage
(3) Division won-lost percentage
(4) Conference won-lost percentage
(5) W-L Percentage vs. Playoff teams, own conference
(6) W-L Percentage vs. Playoff teams, other conference
(7) Net Points, all games

firmly?

my bets are we'll end up in fifth. our schedule is a lot easier compared to sacramento's, who play a bunch of teams still fighting for playoff positioning.

lol, obviously it's a lottery. Sorry, I should have said '4th lottery spot'.
And I suppose firmly is a little strong, but we've got potential to stick it out!

I thought that the tie-breaker for teams with the same records was decided by a coin flip? I remember we won the coin flip one year (Against Philly?) and lost another year to Memphis.

EDIT: Sorry, I thought the tie-breaker for the coin flip meant one team got one (a couple of?) extra ping pong ball (s)
