The ping-pong balls have spoken.
After the Clippers finished just five games out of a playoff spot in 2018 with a franchise-record seventh-straight winning season at 42-40, the team will begin its quest for the 2019 title with the 12th and 13th picks in the upcoming NBA draft.
The Clippers had just a 0.6 percent chance to win the lottery.
This is the first time the Clippers will select in a lottery position (top-14) since 2010 when they selected Al-Farouq Aminu out of Wake Forrest with the No. 8 overall pick and their first time with multiple first-round selections since 2002.
New front office consultant Jerry West was on hand in Chicago to represent the Clips at the lottery.
