"WE'RE NUMBER TWO!"

Rockets score big in lottery, end up with 2nd pick in NBA Draft

The stakes were enormous for the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night ... and they survived.

Faced with the threat of falling to the 18th pick (yes, seriously) if they fell out of the top four, the Rockets won a lottery spot, finishing with the second pick in next month's NBA Draft.

This is a HUGE WIN for the Rockets.

With Cade Cunningham almost assuredly going to the Detroit Pistons with the top pick, the Rockets now have the chance to likely pick between USC center Evan Mobley, shooting guard Jalen Green and Gonzaga point guard Jalen Suggs.
