The Draft

POWERED BY

Game 2 between the Suns and Clippers — even without injured stars Chris Paul and Kawhi Leonard — should be a doozy, but we’ll have our eyes peeled pregame on the NBA Draft Lottery. Let the ping-pong balls fall where they may.

Shoutout to subscriber Marty Magee (@martymagee), who predicted the Lightning would defeat the Islanders and was closest to the final score (8-0). Marty also correctly guessed that Tampa’s Steven Stamkos would score the game’s first goal. Nice going, Marty!
