HOW-TO GUIDE TO WATCHING THE LOTTERY
Fans wanting to know what to ROOT for while watching the NBA Draft Lottery tonight must be familiar with the procedure.

The lottery determines only the top three selections. After that, everything else is slotted based on inverse win-loss records.

When NBA officials reveal the draft order around 7:30, Thunder fans will want to see the following teams' names announced in this order, signifying no team leapfrogged over Oklahoma City:

14-Phoenix; 13-Indiana; 12-Charlotte; 11-New Jersey; 10-Milwaukee; 9-Toronto; 8-New York; 7- Golden State; 6-Memphis; 5-Minnesota.

If any of those 10 teams don't land in those specific draft selection spots, it signifies that team has received a top three selection. It also reduces Oklahoma City's chances of getting a top-three selection, much less the No. 1 overall pick.

The lowest the Thunder can select is seventh. If two teams on the above list are not announced in their respective spots, odds indicate that Oklahoma City probably will draft No. 6, which is where the Thunder landed in The Oklahoman's jelly bean lottery on NewsOK.com.
