NBA Draft Lottery 2012: Houston Rockets Have A Very Small Chance Of Landing Top Pick

The Houston Rockets just barely missed the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and conversely just barely made the field for the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery. Since the Rockets finished just outside the field of eight teams in the Western Conference, their chances at landing the top overall pick - or a Top 3 selection - are statistically the worst in the entire field.
