The Denver Nuggets convincingly beat Memphis away (126:111), in the last round of the NBA before the playoffs. Nikola Jokić scored 15 points, along with 15 rebounds, five assists and four steals, for a triumph that kept the defending champions in the game for first place until the end. Nevertheless, Oklahoma did its job and with a 135:86 victory against Dallas “verified” the pole position at the top of the Western Conference, because it has a better mutual score compared to Jokić and the team.

Also, it is known that the pair will do in the play-in New Orleans and Los Angeles Lakers, and then the winner would go directly to Denver, while the loser would go to the better one from the Sacramento – Golden State duel. Whoever wins goes to West leader Oklahoma. Likewise, it was known in advance that in the West, the playoff pairs will consist of Los Angeles Clippers – Dallas and Minnesota Timberwolves – Phoenix Suns.

In the Eastern Conference, the famous pairs are Milwaukee – Indiana and Cleveland – Orlando, while Philadelphia – Miami will play in the playoffs and the winner of that match will go to the New York Knicks, and the loser will go to the winner of the Chicago Bulls – Atlanta Hawks duel. The winner of that match will play in the playoffs against the leaders of the East, the Boston Celtics.
