LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The patchwork Brooklyn Nets clinched a playoff berth Friday by beating the Sacramento Kings 119-106.
The clinch also means the Timberwolves will get the Nets' next No. 1 draft pick. The Wolves acquired it in a deal with Atlanta in February, but it was lottery-protected.
Caris LeVert scored 22 points for the Nets, and Jarrett Allen had 17 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.
The Nets came to the bubble without injured stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and had several regulars opt out of participating in the restart. They changed coaches in March and have used 24 players this season, but they showed plenty of fight, improving to 3-2 in Florida.
"It's great to punch our own ticket into the playoffs," Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said. "I joked with the guys: I like my laundry being done, but nothing like doing your own laundry."
The Kings fell further behind in a crowded race for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Sacramento is 1-4 in the bubble.
Bogdan Bogdanovic led the Kings with 27 points.
Philadelphia 108, Orlando 101: Tobias Harris had 23 points and 15 rebounds, Joel Embiid finished with 23 points and 13 rebounds and the 76ers won their first game without All-Star Ben Simmons. Simmons is out indefinitely after injuring a knee Wednesday night.
Evan Fournier had 22 points and Nikola Vucevic had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Magic, which has lost three straight games in the NBA bubble after starting 2-0.
Philadelphia tightened the race for No. 4 in the East. The 76ers (42-27) are tied with Indiana for the fifth-best record in the conference, one game behind fourth-place Miami (43-26).
Memphis 121, Oklahoma City 92: Dillon Brooks scored 22 points, and the Grizzlies won for the first time since the restart.
San Antonio 119, Utah 111: Derrick White scored 24 points, Jakob Poelti added 19 points and 10 rebounds and the Spurs got a much-needed win. They moved into sole possession of 10th place in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of Phoenix, which is 4-0 since the restart.
New Orleans 118, Washington 107: Jrue Holiday scored 28 points, and the Pelicans defeated the Wizards without star rookie Zion Williamson. Williamson sat out for rest on the second night of back-to-back games.
Boston 122, Toronto 100: The Celtics led by 40 at one point, the Raptors' biggest deficit of the season.
