Lottery on the line as Pistons, Timberwolves play out season


Both teams are guaranteed of having a losing record for the second straight season, and their players can start making offseason workout plans and short vacation trips after Sunday’s regular-season finales.


The outcome will play a big part in determining where each team finishes in terms of the worst records in the league, which factors into the final odds entering the draft lottery on June 22.


That included back-to-back victories over the Utah Jazz — who have the best record in the Western Conference — as well as one over the league-worst Houston Rockets, and one over the aforementioned Warriors.


1 pick, Anthony Edwards, as well as Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell, have found a nice groove and they’ve shown momentum that they can build on as they head into next season.


In recent games, the Pistons have had some of their veterans back in the lineup, including Saturday’s loss at Philadelphia, but they’re committed to giving their young players more of the playing time.
