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 Minnesota Timberwolves stayed at No. 9.
