Not a bad night for the Jazz lotto pick. Check it, check it out.
Oklahoma City Thunder 120 @ Sacramento Kings 112
Time is not on Sacramento's side. Last night was the second to last game for the Kings in Sactown and it seemed to me like the fans are going to let things go out with a whimper. The Kings were in this up until the last 3 minutes. The most horrible 2 on 1 fast break ever attempted kind of took the wind out of their sales. DeMarcus Cousins was really good. He made Kendrick Perkins look like Carlos Boozer on defense, finishing with 30 pts, 9 boards, and 3 steals. Would have been nice for the Kings to steal this one, but you can't expect much with Tyreke Evans sitting out. Sacramento finishes up tomorrow night with the Lakers.

Boston Celtics 94 @ Washington Wizards 95
The Celtics must have really wanted to see the Knicks in the first round, because they sat Allen, Rondo, Pierce, and Garnett. Neither team could hit the broad side of a barn, but the C's got good contribution from Jeff Green (20pts, 15 rbds) and Old Man O'Neal #2 (15pts, 13rbds). The real story of the game was this amazing play by Von Wafer. John Wall had a great game, but who cares, because now the Wiz are only 1 game behind the Nets and they finish out the season on Wednesday @ Cleveland.
Charlotte Bobcats 105 @ New Jersey Nets 103
C'mon Bobcats. The Cats barely eeked out a win over the Nets, with a game winner by DJ Augustin, whom had a really good game. Not much else, needs to be said. This loss keeps the Nets neck and neck with the Kings for the #5 pick and they finish up on Wednesday @ Chicago.
New Jersey: 24-57
Jazz stuff after the jump.
The Jazz and Suns won, and the Warriors lost, so no chance of the Jazz dropping to the 11th pick. Tomorrow night the Jazz have Denver at home and the Suns host SA, so the most likely outcome is that the current standings stick.
