With the regular season almost at its end, only one sport is left open in the playoffs and it will be decided in between Minnesota and Denver in the game between them.

By Eurohoops team/ info@eurohoops.net

The San Antonio Spurs of Tony Parker and Pau Gasol for a 21st season, the Pelicans after beating the LA Clippers with Spaniard Nikola Mirotic having a double-double (24 p. 16 r.) and the Oklahoma City Thunder punched their playoffs tickets last night.

However, with Denver getting the home win against Portland after an epic duel between Serb Nikola Jokic who had his 10th triple-double of the season (15 p. 20 r. 11 as.) and Bosnian Jusuf Nurkic (20 p. 19 r.), the final playoffs spot of the West will go to the winners of the last game of the regular season between Minnesota and Denver.
