NEW YORK -- Ruth Riley was momentarily confused whether San Antonio actually won the WNBA draft lottery or not when the four picks were revealed at the same time.It took a second, but when the Stars general manager realized she had the top choice, she let out a scream of joy.I thought historically they went 4-3-2-1, Riley said in a phone interview. Then I heard him say the No. 1 pick, then our name. Im really incredibly excited for our team, organization and our fans. Im looking forward to the addition of a great player.The Stars, who have the top choice for the first time, had a 44 percent chance to secure the No. 1 selection based on having the worst combined record the past two seasons.A lot of fans supported us knowing that it wasnt about we were doing this season, but more the direction we were going, Riley said.The Washington Mystics will pick second. They had a 10-percent chance of securing the top pick.The second pick is really exciting for us, Washington coach Mike Thibault said. Where we are with our franchise, to get another good college player will help us a lot. Its a really exciting moment for our franchise.The Dallas Wings secured the third pick and the Los Angeles Sparks fourth. The Sparks acquired Connecticuts lottery pick through a draft-day trade last April that sent Jonquel Jones to the Sun.Connecticut and Dallas each had a 23 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick.You never know how the balls are going to bounce, Dallas coach Fred Williams said. Were getting a nice pick there at the three position.Unlike the previous few seasons, there is no clear-cut No. 1 pick coming out of college this year.Clearly going to do some research, Riley said. Evaluating our roster and needs. Its a normal process. Theres a lot of discussion around the top draft picks and different opinions who they should be. My job as GM is to evaluate the talent.Riley also has to find a new coach as Dan Hughes retired at the end of the season. She said that finding a new one is a high priority for the franchise.The rest of the first round in order will be Phoenix, Seattle, Atlanta, Indiana, Dallas (from New York), Dallas (from Los Angeles) and Minnesota.There are a lot of things available for us since we have three picks in the first round, Williams said.---Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberg David Booth Jersey . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- After giving up a 12-point halftime lead, the Orlando Magic recovered with enough baskets and key stops down the stretch to grind out a big win.Serge Ibaka scored 16 points and Nikola Vucevic broke out of his shooting slump with 10 points and 14 rebounds to help lift the Magic to an 89-82 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night.After Terrence Jones basket pulled New Orleans to 84-82, Vucevic made back-to-back shots in the waning moments for the win.We are going to keep fighting, keep trying to find a way, said Vucevic, who finished 10 points and 14 rebounds. Were not playing really good basketball right now, its not easy to get stuff going and get into the flow but we just have to find ways to get wins until we figure that out.At times in the second half it appeared the Magic were headed to a second straight defeat as their offense tanked and they couldnt get stops against Pelicans team that found out late that Anthony Davis wouldnt be available because of a thigh injury.Jones, who replaced Davis in the starting lineup, scored a game-high 26 points for the Pelicans.Jones had 12 points in the third quarter to help the Pelicans comeback from a 12-point first-half deficit to pull within one point late in the period. The Magic held on to a 65-63 lead at the end of the third.New Orleans completed its comeback with 9:23 in the game when Buddy Hield knocked down a baseline jumper to put his team up briefly 70-69. But Augustin and Rudez countered with a combined 10 points during a stretch to put the Magic back ahead, 79-73.The Magic shot just 39 percent from the field with all of the starters struggling to hit shots consistently. But without Davis in the lineup, the Pelicans offense was stagnant at times, too, and finished shooting 37 percent. Serge Ibaka and Evan Fournier led the way with 16 points each.We talked the whole night that nothing is easy in the NBA, Magic coach Frank Vogel said. Its just one of those thingss where one guy goes down and everybody else has an opportunity.dddddddddddd You are going to work and earn everything.After a sluggish start, the Magic got going in the second quarter. They came up with stops and Ibaka and Fournier both hit big shots to build Orlandos lead to 15 before heading into halftime with a 52-40 advantage.Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry was pleased to see his team fight the way it did in Davis absence but he still felt they let a winnable game slip away.I thought our defense was fantastic, played the whole game, said Gentry, whose team slipped to 2-10. You just have to find a way offensively to get a few baskets.TIP-INSPelicans: Langston Galloway, a free agent signee last summer, followed up his breakout game against Boston on Monday with 15 points off the bench against the Magic. He scored 21 points against the Celtics. ... The Pelicans came in having lost two of three.Magic: Vucevic came in shooting 5 for 32 from field in the Magics last three games and had not attempted a free throw in any of the three games. ...

Jones had 15 and 10 off the bench Monday in a win over Boston.COLD STARTSThe Magic came into the game as the NBAs lowest-scoring (92.6) and worst-shooting (.410) team, and missed their first five shots while the Pelicans were missing their first eight.
