Nick Gilbert did it again.

For the second time in three years, the Cavaliers won the NBA draft lottery, earning the first pick in the 2013 NBA draft with Gilbert, the 16-year-old son of owner Dan Gilbert, representing the team on stage Tuesday night at ABC's Disney Studios in Times Square.

The Cavs entered the lottery with the third-worst record in the NBA, but jumped over Orlando and Charlotte to earn the No. 1 spot for the third time in their history. The Magic took the second pick and the Washington Wizards moved from eighth to third.

The Cavs won the lottery in 2005, taking LeBron James, and in 2011, taking Kyrie Irving with the pick that originally belonged to the Los Angeles Clippers, obtained in the trade for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon. They just missed winning last year, finishing fourth instead.

They had tied with New Orleans for the third worst-record in the league in 2011-12 but won a coin flip to earn one extra lottery combination. Had they lost the coin flip, they'd have earned the set of combinations New Orleans owned that included the winning combination.

In all likelihood, the No. 1 pick in the 2013 draft on June 27 will be Kentucky big man Nerlens Noel, despite coming off a torn ACL that will keep him out until Christmas.
