Those results left the Hawks (22-56) two games behind the Suns (20-59) for the worst record and thus the best lottery odds. The Hawks also moved 1.5 games clear of the Magic (23-54) for the third-worst record and pulled within a half game of the Grizzlies (21-56) for the second-worst record. To be assured of at least tie for the worst record, the Hawks need to lose their final four games and have the Suns win two of their final three.
FiveThirtyEight.com's statistical model predicts that the Suns, Grizzlies and Hawks each will win one more game and that the Magic will win two. That would mean the teams finish as they stand now (in reverse order): Suns, Grizzlies, Hawks and Magic.
