The Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery, their second successive No. 1 pick after last year's pick of Anthony Bennett. The Cavaliers, with a 1.7 percent chance, landed the top pick. From there, it was chalk.
The Milwaukee Bucks kept a top-three spot, landing No. 2, removing the pressure of taking the No. 1 pick. That might actually work out better for them.
The Sixers, meanwhile, landed third, staying in what's considered the elite tier of this draft. The Magic stay in a great spot, with the fourth and 12th picks. They'll be in range for either Dante Exum or Julius Randle in that fourth spot, most likely.
The big losers? The Lakers and Celtics, who didn't move up to help them in their pursuit of trading for Kevin Love. The Pistons lost their pick, getting bumped by Cleveland and falling to ninth, which means the Hornets get the pick via trade.
