Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Draft Lottery Odds: Week 9

NEWARK, NJ - JUNE 23: NBA Commissioner David Stern announces that the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kyrie Irving from Duke with the #1 overall pick in the first round during the 2011 NBA Draft at the Prudential Center on June 23, 2011 in Newark, New Jersey.

The games are finally piling on for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they're in the midst of a five games in six nights stretch. Up next are trips to Indians on Friday and Washington on Saturday followed by a trip by the Magic to the Q on Sunday. With so many games the team will finally have played as many games as many of its competitors so we'll be able to get a better read on where they're at. Things are getting shaky in my quest to land the 4th pick. While it's okay for the team to win some games every now and then it wasn't a good victory to beat the Raptors since they're very close to us in this race. A better result would have been losing that game and pulling out the Pacers one yesterday. Find out how far the Cavaliers have slipped in the race for Lottery Balls after the jump.

3. New Orleans Hornets: 16-42

4. Sacramento Kings: 19-40

5. Toronto Raptors: 20-39

6. Cleveland Cavaliers: 19-37

7. New Jersey Nets: 21-38

8. Detroit Pistons: 21-36

Good News: Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao won't play in these three games. Lestivus is still going on and might be a long holiday.

Bad News: It's going to be extremely difficult to end up in that 4th position as the Kings have a brutal schedule and the Cavs seem on the verge of a couple wins in the final weeks. It's looking like the Cavaliers will finish between 5th and 7th.
