Detroit Pistons lottery rundown: April 8, 2010

What a win, even with the season in the trash bin. The Pistons played with heart all night, a welcome sight. But that means their lottery odds took a hit, just a bit.

Because the Pacers beat the Knicks, Detroit will be guaranteed the ninth seed or better. That also means the Pacers won’t be mentioned here anymore.

As always, if anyone has any questions, post them in the comments, and I’ll answer. If you’re unsure about something, I’m sure someone else is, too.
