NBA's biggest losers look for lottery win

Wiggins Not Focused On Being Top Pick

AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- They lost often, as in 67 times for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Sometimes they lost always, as in 26 straight times for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Now the NBA's biggest losers have a chance for a huge win.

The draft lottery is Tuesday, a night some teams appeared to be aiming toward for months during a season featuring plenty of talking about tanking.

The winner gets the No. 1 pick in next month's draft, when an Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker might make all of this season's misery worth it.

It's a potential make-or-break night for some teams, which is why a program about the results of a random drawing ends up as the prime-time lead-in for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
