CHICAGO (AP) — Thaddeus Young scored 20 points, Coby White added 19 and the Chicago Bulls beat Milwaukee 118-112 with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the rest of the Bucks’ starters missing the regular-season finale Sunday night. The Bucks ruled Khris Middleton out because of lingering soreness in his left ankle, then scratched Antetokounmpo and the rest of the starters once it became clear the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference was out of reach. The Brooklyn Nets clinched the position by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers. That locked Milwaukee into the third spot and a first-round matchup against the Miami Heat. Bucks rookie Jordan Nwora set career highs with 34 points and 14 rebounds. Jeff Teague scored 23. But with its top players out, Milwaukee came up short after winning eight of nine. The Bulls prevented the Bucks from becoming the first NBA team to go unbeaten in its division, with an 11-1 mark against the Central. Chicago also snapped a 12-game losing streak to Milwaukee. Lauri Markkanen scored 17, Ryan Arcidiacono set season highs with 14 points and four 3-pointers, and the Bulls finished their first season under coach Billy Donovan on a winning note — even though Zach Lavine (right knee tendinitis) and Nikola Vucevic (hip) did not play. The Bulls were up by four early in the fourth when Arcidiacono hit three 3-pointers in a span of a minute as the lead grew to 100-89. TIP-INS Bucks: Middleton missed his fourth game this season. “We feel like if we can kind of get on top of it this 24, 48 hours, I think he’ll be in a great place heading into the week of prep and playoffs,” coach Mike Budenholzer said. ... F Thanasis Antetokounmpo exited with a sore right patella tendon. Bulls: Donovan is missing the playoffs for the first time in six seasons as an NBA coach. He got there each of the past five years with Oklahoma City. “I've probably been in situations in college where you probably knew you were not going to make the NCAA Tournament,” said Donovan, who led Florida to two NCAA championships in 19 years. “It came down to your conference tournament, and a lot of times in those situations, it was having to win four games in four days, which is really challenging.” ... Daniel Theis (sprained right hip), Tomas Satoransky (sprained left ankle) and Troy Brown Jr. (sprained left ankle) were unavailable. UP NEXT Bucks: Open the playoffs at home against Miami. Bulls: Season is over. ___ More AP NBA coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Andrew Seligman, The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Anthony Edwards scored 30 points in his final audition for NBA Rookie of the Year, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 136-121 victory over the postseason-bound Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night. Luka Doncic had 18 points, six rebounds and six assists in 21 minutes for the Mavericks, who were unharmed by the meaningless defeat. They get the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference playoffs, pitted against the No. 4 seed Los Angeles Clippers in a first-round series beginning next weekend. The Mavericks (42-30) broke their three-way tie with the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers by virtue of their Southwest Division title. The Mavericks were able to play without worry, having secured a top-six spot and avoiding the new play-in round that owner Mark Cuban said recently was an " enormous mistake." This was only their fourth loss in their last 16 games, with Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis and the rest of coach Rick Carlisle's crew bringing plenty of confidence they can do some damage in what ought to be a wide-open bracket on the Western Conference side. The Timberwolves brought a last-day-of-school vibe to the game, laughing their way through warmups and enjoying a sharp night of 3-point shooting at 42.5% (17 for 40). Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell scored 23 points apiece. They set a franchise record for their highest score (113 points) through three quarters on their way to a seventh win in their final 12 games, finishing with the sixth-worst record (23-49) in the league after spending much of the season at the bottom. Their first-round draft pick, owed to the Golden State Warriors for the Russell trade last year, is only top-three protected. Jaden McDaniels had 19 points on 8-for-13 shooting, including a soaring dunk set up by a no-look pass from Russell early in the second quarter. McDaniels and Edwards formed quite the rookie tandem for Minnesota this season, giving the long-woebegone franchise a true lift and a couple of keepers to build around Towns and Russell. TIP-INS Mavericks: Maxi Kleber (right Achilles soreness) sat out for the sixth time in the last eight games. JJ Redick (right heel soreness) was also inactive for the fifth time in the last seven games. Timberwolves: This was the 36th game of 20-plus points for Edwards, extending his franchise rookie record. ... Edwards was 5 for 9 from 3-point range. He made the fourth-most 3-pointers (171) by a rookie in NBA history, trailing Donovan Mitchell (187), Damian Lillard (185) and Saddiq Bey (175). ___ More AP NBA coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dave Campbell, The Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 22 points and 10 assists and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Denver Nuggets 132-116 in the regular-season finale Sunday night to secure their eighth straight playoff berth, the longest active streak in the NBA. The Blazers secured the sixth seed, which means they'll face the Nuggets in the opening round. Denver wound up with the third seed in a crazy night that saw the West's teams in a scramble for playoff position. Denver was assured of the No. 3 seed when the Clippers fell to the Thunder. CJ McCollum added 24 points, including five 3-pointers, and the Blazers avoided the play-in round. Lillard also had five 3s. The Nuggets, already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, held their starters to limited minutes. Nikola Jokic had 21 points in the opening half then sat for the rest of the game. Last season, the Nuggets went to the conference finals for the first time since 2009 but fell to the eventual champion Los Angeles Lakers. Coach Michael Malone had said he wouldn't rest his starters, and indeed he did. But only Austin Rivers started the second. The Blazers jumped out to a 43-22 lead in the opening quarter, making nine of 15 3-point attempts. They went up 72-55 at the half. Lillard's 3-pointer in the third quarter put Portland up 95-74. The Blazers pushed the lead to as many as 27 points. The Blazers were coming off a 118-117 loss at Phoenix which snapped a five-game winning streak. Portland rebounded from a five-game losing streak last month to win nine of 11 heading into the regular-season finale. The Nuggets had won three straight, capped by a 104-91 victory at Detroit. Jusuf Nukic finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Blazers. TIP INS Nuggets: Denver won the first two games against the Blazers this season. ... Denver was without Will Barton (hamstring) and P.J. Dozier (adductor). ... Malone insisted before the game he wasn't looking ahead to the playoffs: “I haven’t spent five minutes since we got into town here worrying about who we’re playing after tonight.” Trail Blazers: With a 3-pointer in the opening quarter, Lillard snapped his own franchise record for made 3-pointers in a season (270). ... Lillard had scored 30 or more points in his last seven games, the longest stretch of his career.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Jordan Clarkson scored 33 points, Rudy Gobert added 13 points and 16 rebounds and the Utah Jazz took the No. 1 spot in the NBA playoffs, beating the Sacramento Kings 121-99 on Sunday night. Utah (52-20) won its final two to edge Western Conference-rival Phoenix for the top spot. It’s the first time in franchise history that the Jazz have finished with sole possession of the best record in the NBA. Mike Conley had 11 points, nine assists and six rebounds in his second game back after missing two weeks because of a right hamstring injury. Bojan Bogdanovic had 18 points. Now comes the waiting game for coach Quin Snyder’s team. Utah awaits one of the surviving teams from the play-in games that begin Tuesday and end Friday. Terence Davis had 20 points for Sacramento. The Kings, who started four reserves, finished the season with a three-game losing streak. A loss to Sacramento in the final regular season game would have dropped Utah into a tie with Phoenix, and the Suns held the tiebreaker after sweeping three games against the Jazz. Instead, the Jazz shook off a slow start and thumped the Kings for the second time in three weeks. Utah led by 15 at halftime and continued to pull away in the second half. Bogdanovich scored nine points and dunked off a bounce pass from Royce O’Neal, while Clarkson added a pair of 3s as part of a 20-4 run in the third quarter. O’Neal’s 3-pointer later pushed Utah’s lead to 90-61. Clarkson sank three free throws midway through the fourth to make it 113-87. Conley, limited to 16 minutes against Oklahoma City on Friday in his return from a right hamstring injury, got the Jazz going after they sputtered early. He had 11 points with three 3s and seven assists to help Utah to a 64-49 lead. TIP-INS Jazz: Utah had twice previously tied for the best record in 1998 and in the lockout-shortened season in 1999. … The Jazz finished with a franchise-record 1,205 3-pointers. … Utah set franchise records for scoring (154) and margin of victory (49) when the two teams played on April 28 at Golden 1 Center. Kings: Hield went 1 of 7 on 3-pointers will head into next season four shy of Peja Stojakovic’s franchise career record of 1,070. … De’Aaron Fox (health and safety protocols), Marvin Bagley (leg), Harrison Barnees (left adductor), Richaun Holmes (knee) and Moe Harkess (unknown) did not play. UP NEXT Jazz: Utah will get a week of rest before facing the No. 8 seed in the playoffs. The play-in rounds wrap up Friday. Kings: Sacramento heads into the offseason facing questions about coach Luke Walton’s future with the team and a roster that underachieved for much of the season. Holmes is the only player of significance who will be a free agent. __ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/tag/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Michael Wagaman, The Associated Press
