Draft Update: Spurs Upset Nuggets, Tie Blazers in Standings

The San Antonio Spurs stole a victory from the Denver Nuggets in the final seconds, starting off a crazy series of events that changed draft and playoff positions around the NBA Friday night. The Portland Trail Blazers’ loss to the Houston Rockets placed them in an improved draft position.

What This Means for the Blazers

With San Antonio’s victory, they have tied the Portland Trail Blazers in the standings at 21-60 with one game to play. Both teams are one game ahead of the Charlotte Hornets at 20-61. Going into Sunday’s finales, it increases Portland’s odds of moving up in the draft.
