NEW YORK (AP) – Nick Gilbert and the Cleveland Cavaliers have beaten the NBA lottery odds again.

The Cavaliers won the lottery for the second time in three years and have the No. 1 pick for the June 27 draft.

Gilbert, owner Dan Gilbert’s bowtie-wearing son, was on stage again for the victory. He won in 2011, a pick the Cavs used on eventual Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving.

The Orlando Magic fell back one spot to No. 2, while the Washington Wizards vaulted from the No. 8 spot to third.

The Detroit Pistons will select 8th in the NBA Draft which will be held on June 27.
