Per league source: Celtics lost “coin toss” with Utah, will enter lottery in fifth position, with one less combination than the Jazz.

Of course the Celtics lost again. Though it’s not really THAT big of a deal. The difference is negligible as far as draft odds go. Sean Deveney of the Sporting News has the proper perspective:
Before getting excited about the “coin flip” business, remember 2012, when NO lost to the Cavs for 3d? NO won lotto and Cavs still picked 4.
