The Milwaukee Bucks have a two-game “lead” for the NBA’s worst record with two games remaining.
To tie for the worst record, the Philadelphia 76ers need Milwaukee to do something it hasn’t done all season: Win two games in a row.
The Bucks haven’t won two in a row since late March last year.
It’s almost inconceivable that Milwaukee maintained the worst record after the Sixers lost 26 consecutive games, but it has.
If, by some miracle, Milwaukee wins two (against Toronto tonight and Atlanta Wednesday) and Philly loses two, the teams will tie for the worst record and split the percentage of ping pong balls in the draft lottery (22 percent each).
Philadelphia has Boston tonight and Miami on Wednesday.
Milwaukee is the worst team on the ESPN power rankings for the second week.
