Minus stars, Nets clinch playoff spot in victory over Kings

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Caris LeVert scored 22 points, Jarrett Allen added 17 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists and the patchwork Brooklyn Nets clinched a playoff berth by beating the Sacramento Kings 119-106 on Friday.

The surprising Nets came to the bubble without stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving but continued to display plenty of fight, improving to 3-2 since coming to Florida. Joe Harris added 21 points, shooting 8 of 11 from the field, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range.

"It's been great to see these guys trust each other in the limited amount of time we've been together and embrace playing together," Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said.
