Sixers lose tiebreaker with Pacers

The NBA conducted their tiebreakers for the upcoming NBA Draft today, and it didn't go so well for the 10-9-8 76ers.

The home team lost its tiebreaker with the Pacers, which was a result of the Sixers winning their final game and finishing the season with an identical record as Indiana. They are now slated in the 12th position.

Here's the breakdown: The Sixers have a 7-in-1000 chance of landing the No. 1 pick. The first three picks in the draft will be determined by the lottery and the remainder of the teams will select in positions 4 through 14 in inverse order of their standings at the end of the regular season.
