Mavericks beat Raptors to clinch top-6 spot, avoid play-in

DALLAS (AP) Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks no longer have to worry about that NBA play-in tournament. They are guaranteed a top-six finish in the Western Conference.

"That's great. ... When we were in the 12th or 13th spot, everybody had us out of the playoffs," Doncic said. "But now we've made the playoffs. We're going to have a couple of days off, and that's what we needed."

Doncic had his 11th triple-double of the season with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists as they held on to beat the also-ran Toronto Raptors 114-110 in their regular-season home finale Friday night.
