With the whole bunch of the Brooklyn Nets players out, most notably superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the team managed to secure a playoff spot as the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. The Nets defeated the mighty Los Angeles Clippers 129-120 in their last outing.

Sports analyst Skip Bayless was impressed with Brooklyn’s performance. According to him, had Durant and Irving chosen to play in the bubble, the Nets’ supporting cast would have been good enough to help them win the East.

Game highlights:

The Nets will face the reigning champions Toronto Raptors in the first round of the playoffs.
