The LA Clippers, Golden State Warriors, and the LA Lakers got their wins on the last day of the NBA regular season and Minessota stole the show for a number of reasons

With the East conference already decided and only the final standings between the 5th and the 9th spot in the West on the line, the last day of the NBA regular season started in a festive and relaxed mood with most stars and starters rested to be concluded in a very tense way.

The Gobert incident stole the show in Minnesota which ultimately got the big 113-108 win over the Pelicans with Antony Edwards scoring 26 points and stealing the show. For the losing side, Brandon Ingram had 42 points and Lithuanian big man Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double (11 p. 18 r.) which was not enough, as the Pelicans finished ninth and will compete with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the play-ins.

The Timberwolves finished in the 8th spot and will face the 7th-seeded Lakers, who beat the Jazz 128-117 (Samanic 9 p., Fontecchio 20 p.). The Clippers kept the 5th spot by beating 119-114 (Zubac 10 p. 8 r.) the Suns, who rested their starters. The Warriors destroyed the Blazers 157-101, keeping the 6th spot.
