NBA playoffs: How Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell dominated in Game 1 win despite illness and sluggish start

  NBA playoffs: How Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell dominated in Game 1 win despite illness and sluggish start After battling a tough start, Donovan Mitchell scored 45 points to lead the Jazz to a Game 1 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.“You just keep getting your mind right, and it overcomes everything,” Snyder told Mitchell.

Perhaps no team has more to gain — and more to lose — at Tuesday's NBA Draft lottery than the Rockets.

Houston enters the lottery drawing tied with the Pistons and Magic for the best odds (14 percent) to land the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. If the Rockets do end up at the top of the draft board, they would likely select Oklahoma State star Cade Cunningham, a potential franchise cornerstone with an elite combination of size, shooting and playmaking ability.

However, if Houston's pick falls outside of the top four, it would be conveyed to Oklahoma City. (The Thunder received multiple pick-swap options as part of the Chris Paul-Russell Westbrook deal in 2019). That would be a disastrous result considering the Rockets are coming off a season in which they had to trade James Harden and finished 17-55 overall, the worst record in the league.

How NBA players and coaches navigated this season a year after experiencing the bubble

  How NBA players and coaches navigated this season a year after experiencing the bubble Some NBA coaches and players painted a clear picture on how the mental toll of this season compared to life in the NBA bubble. Clearly, no one misses spending up to three months on the Disney campus. “Being in the bubble kind of felt like prison,” Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma said. “You couldn’t leave. We only ate about three or four of the same meals every single day for three months, and we didn’t see family. So that was really tough.” Clearly, everyone savors the relatively expanded freedoms allowed during this season. “This year has been easier because I have outlets,” L.A.

How will this year's drawing play out for a team desperate to acquire a rising star?

Here's a guide to everything you need to know about the 2021 NBA Draft lottery, including the TV channel, start time and every team's percentage odds to win the No. 1 overall pick.

How does the NBA Draft lottery work?

The NBA Draft lottery will determine the order of the top four draft picks this year. After the first four teams are locked in, the rest of the lottery order goes by inverse regular-season record. The actual lottery drawing procedure will occur before the ESPN broadcast, and the 2021 NBA Draft order will be announced shortly after.

Opinion: NBA needs to acknowledge its overly ambitious regular-season schedule was a mistake

  Opinion: NBA needs to acknowledge its overly ambitious regular-season schedule was a mistake The NBA's 72-game regular season jammed in to just five months was far too ambitious, writes Dan Wolken. And the physical crumbling of teams is proof.There’s no need to waste time debating whether the team that wins this year’s NBA title will have an asterisk next to its name, suggesting that its accomplishment is tainted by the pulled groins, strained hamstrings, and torn knee ligaments that felled competitors along the way.

Here's the in-the-weeds explanation for the ping-pong ball drawing method, straight from the NBA:

Fourteen ping-pong balls numbered 1 through 14 will be placed in a lottery machine. There are 1,001 possible combinations when four balls are drawn out of 14, without regard to their order of selection. Before the lottery, 1,000 of those 1,001 combinations will be assigned to the 14 participating lottery teams. The lottery machine is manufactured by the Smart Play Company, a leading manufacturer of state lottery machines throughout the United States. Smart Play also weighs, measures and certifies the ping-pong balls before the drawing.

The drawing process occurs in the following manner: All 14 balls are placed in the lottery machine and they are mixed for 20 seconds, and then the first ball is removed. The remaining balls are mixed in the lottery machine for another 10 seconds, and then the second ball is drawn. There is a 10-second mix, and then the third ball is drawn. There is a 10-second mix, and then the fourth ball is drawn. The team that has been assigned that combination will receive the No. 1 pick. The same process is repeated with the same ping-pong balls and lottery machine for the second through fourth picks.

Canadiens HC Dominique Ducharme must isolate for 14 days after positive COVID test

  Canadiens HC Dominique Ducharme must isolate for 14 days after positive COVID test Although the NHL has relaxed many rules pertaining to its COVID protocol, a positive test still warrants a 14-day isolation period. Especially when the Canadiens were fortunate enough to not have any other positive tests among its players and staff, the league wants to maintain the health and safety of the team as well as the integrity of its semifinals. © Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Dominique Ducharme is out for the next two weeks after testing positive for COVID. With that said, losing Ducharme is a blow for Montreal.

If the same team comes up more than once, the result is discarded and another four-ball combination is selected. Also, if the one unassigned combination is drawn, the result is discarded and the balls are drawn again. The length of time the balls are mixed is monitored by a timekeeper who faces away from the machine and signals the machine operator after the appropriate amount of time has elapsed.
