Mallory Edens represents Milwaukee Bucks at NBA draft lottery, becomes instant celebrity

Yahoo Sports Minute

The Milwaukee Bucks could use some good karma. After all, the franchise finished with a league-worst 15-67 record this past season. And even though the franchise didn't win the NBA draft lottery on Tuesday night (the Bucks will pick second; the Cleveland Cavaliers won the No. 1 pick for the third time in four years), it did gain an instant celebrity. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Mallory Edens.

The 18-year-old daughter of new co-owner Wesley Edens represented the organization at the annual event and saw her Twitter account go from 249 followers to more than 25,000 by midnight PT. The high school senior, who will graduate next month, was also the top trending term on the social media site. She told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that sitting next to Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius Erving during the festivities was "sort of unbelievable." And while her pair of lucky pins didn't deliver the No. 1 pick to the Bucks, her appearance did give us this meme.

Busy night

Moving to action on the court, Lance Stephenson had an eventful evening in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Indiana Pacers guard finished with a game-high 25 points and had a tip-in with 0.1 second left at the end of the first half. Then, in the second half, this happened.

Stephenson flopped after making contact with LeBron James and appeared to briefly take a nap on the court. When it was over, the Miami Heat had won 87-83 to even the series at one game apiece.

Three outs

Moving to baseball, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig lost track of the number of outs against the New York Mets. After catching a David Wright fly ball to end the third inning, Puig gunned it back into the infield. When it was caught by Juan Uribe, all the third baseman could do was stare at the reigning NL Player of the Week.

Wait till next year

Finally in football news, the NFL won't expand the playoffs this year but commissioner Roger Goodell expects owners to approve the change prior to the 2015 season.
