 NEW YORK (AP) -Portland won a tiebreaker against Minnesota on Friday, meaning the Trail Blazers will pick one spot higher if neither gets a top-three selection through the draft lottery.
The Blazers and Timberwolves both finished 32-50, tied for the sixth-worst record in the NBA. They have the same 5.3 percent chances of winning the No. 1 pick, expected to be used on freshmen Greg Oden or Kevin Durant.
There were five ties broken through random drawing done by NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson following the league's Board of Governors meetings.
Charlotte (33-49) won a three-way tie with New York and Sacramento after tying for eighth. The Knicks then beat the Kings - though the Chicago Bulls can swap picks with New York as a result of the Eddy Curry trade.
Three other ties were broken:
-Indiana (35-47) beat Philadelphia.
-Washington (41-41) beat New Jersey.
-Golden State (42-40) beat the Los Angeles Lakers.
The lottery will be held May 22 to determine the top three picks. The other 11 teams in the lottery will then pick in inverse order of their records.
