MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points and the Los Angeles Clippers clinched a playoff spot Tuesday night with a 122-111 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Coach Doc Rivers’ club is back in the postseason after falling short last year. Los Angeles finished 42-40 last season, missing the playoffs after making it six straight years — four under Rivers.

The Clippers (45-30) became the fifth Western Conference team to secure a postseason berth.
