OKC Thunder news: Clippers’ Play-In loss clinches 12th-best lottery odds for Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder officially clinched the 12th-best lottery odds after the LA Clippers Play-In Tournament loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday.

The Clippers were without Paul George as he tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday morning. Brandon Ingram’s 30 points led the way for the Pelicans in a win that guarantees them the eighth seed and a First Round matchup with the top-seeded Phoenix Suns.

The Thunder now own the fourth-best and 12th-best lottery odds in the 2022 NBA Draft lottery, which will be held on May 17. The Thunder will find out where its two top 14 picks will land that night.
