The Lottery Teams-
Boston, Portland, Minnesota, Utah, Phoenix, Golden State, Toronto, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Sacramento, New Jersey, Charlotte, Detroit, New Orleans, Washington.

I rank teams based not just on their win/loss record. I put extra weight on how they have played lately, strength of schedule, and how they are playing on the road.
