The Los Angeles Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks have secured their place in the NBA playoffs, following remarkable victories over the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Miami Heat respectively.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis Lead Lakers to Overtaking Victory

The Lakers defeated the Timberwolves 108-102 in an overtime thriller, clinching their spot in the postseason.

LeBron James was the standout player for the Lakers, finishing the game with 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists. Meanwhile, Anthony Davis contributed 24 points and 15 rebounds, proving to be a dominant force on the court.

"We've got a couple of days before we go to Memphis to start preparing for them. It's been a battle. It's been an up-and-down season for us, but now is the time to show who we are, and we showed it tonight," Davis said after the game.

Lakers coach Darvin Ham added, "Once you get to the end of things, to have everyone healthy, to be playing in the type of rhythm we're playing in, to defend at the level that we're defending at, going into the most important time of the year, you can't ask for a better situation." "The play was between me and AD, and we discussed it on the bench, and then we moved forward," James said. "We've still got five more minutes to play.

That's how we started overtime. We was able to recalibrate. Get our game back."

Trae Young Leads Hawks to Victory over Miami

The Hawks were victorious over the Miami Heat, with a score of 116-105. The win was largely due to the impressive performance of Trae Young, who finished the match with 25 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists.

Kyle Lowry also had a strong game for Miami, with 33 points. The Lakers will now face the Memphis Grizzlies in the playoffs, while the Hawks will take on the Boston Celtics. The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Miami Heat will have another chance to enter the playoffs, as they will play against the winner of the match between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Toronto Raptors and the Chicago Bulls respectively. The teams that make it to the playoffs will go on to face the Denver Nuggets and the Milwaukee Bucks.
