2012 NBA Draft Lottery Odds: Rockets Have Least Chances Of Getting Anthony Davis

As if the Rockets choking at the end of the regular season wasn't enough, with them barely missing out on the playoffs, the odds of them attaining one of the top selections in the 2012 NBA Draft are slim. Not only are the chances slim, but they are the very slimmest, as Mike Prada detailed over at the NBA hub page.

The Rockets have a 0.5 percent chance at getting the No. 1 overall pick and 1.8 percent chance for a top three pick.

Houston is likely to pick at No. 14, but of course the lottery will decide that for sure. For now, NBADraft.net has the Rockets picking Arnett Moultrie with the 14th selection. That's what the Rockets have to look forward to. Prizes like Anthony Davis and Thomas Robinson are going to the Charlotte Bobcats and New Orleans Hornets of the world - the teams that never even pretended to be good this season.

Rockets Vs. Hornets Final Score: Houston Dominates Fourth Quarter In 84-77 Comeback Win

A disappointing end to the season finished on a high note as the Rockets rallied for a 84-77 win over the New Orleans Hornets.

Houston trailed 71-63 entering the fourth quarter, but the Rockets outscored the Hornets 21-6 in the final quarter of the season for both teams. Chase Budinger got the start and led the Rockets with 27 points on 10-for-18 shooting. Samuel Dalembert recorded a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Houston won despite shooting 35.2 percent (32-for-91) from the field, including 9-for-28 from three-point range. The Hornets were led by 13 points from three different players and shot 39.7 percent (27-for-68) from the floor. They appeared to be in control of the game before a terrible shooting slump to finish the game.

The Rockets seemed to be safely in the playoffs a few weeks ago, but finished the season losing seven of nine games and fell just short.

Rockets Vs. Hornets Score Update: Houston Trails 42-33 At Halftime Of Season Finale

Despite falling short of the playoffs, the Rockets played the first half with most of their normal lineup. Unfortunately, their normal lineup is having trouble with the Hornets for the second time in a week, as Houston trails 42-33 at halftime.

Chase Budinger got the start and leads Houston with 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting. Samuel Dalembert has nine points and 10 rebounds at the break. The Rockets are shooting just 26.7 percent (12-for-25) from the field, including an ugly 3-for-16 from three-point range. The Hornets are shooting 42.4 percent (14-for-33) and are led with 11 points from Jerome Dyson.

The Rockets have fallen short of the playoffs for the last three seasons, but to end this regular season with another loss to the Hornets — this time at home — would be a rough way to finish.
