Lakers win again, this time without Russell. New Orleans didn't play Boogie or Davis, so not a surprise victory. MWP started and had 18 points in what will almost certainly be his last home game as a Laker.
Phoenix got destroyed so the victory didn't cost us anything at this point. Lakers have one game left and there's no harm in rooting for them now as the 3rd seed in the lottery is guaranteed.
Lakers have a 46.9% chance of retaining their pick. If they don't, they'll have the 28th and 33rd picks in the draft. If they get a top-3 pick, the 33rd pick goes to Orlando.
