Phoenix Suns qualified for the NBA play-offs on Thursday.

It is the first time since 2010 that the Arizona formation can participate in the post-competition.

Phoenix Suns secured the ticket for the playoffs by dealing with Los Angeles Clippers: 109-101.

Chris Paul was the most important player for the home team with 28 points, three rebounds and ten assists.

In the past, Phoenix Suns reached the NBA finals twice, but in both 1976 (Boston Celtics) and 1993 (Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls) the Western Conference formation missed the title.

"We are not satisfied with making it to the play-offs, we feel that there is more to come," said coach Monty Williams after the game against the Clippers.

Philadelphia 76ers also qualified for the play-offs.

The home game with Atlanta Hawks ended in a resounding victory: 127-83.

All fifteen players of the 'Sixers' scored, with Seth Curry as the best shooter (twenty points).

Utah Jazz sets club record with 154 points

Utah Jazz, the leader in the Western Conference, set a club record by beating the Sacramento Kings 154-105.

Never before has the Salt Lake City club managed to score so many points in a league game.

Bojan Bogdanovic was the top scorer at Utah Jazz with 24 points, followed by Jordan Clarkson with 23 points.

Georges Niang (nineteen points) and Rudy Gobert (twelve points and ten rebounds) were also on fire with the visitors.

No fewer than eight players from Utah Jazz ended up in the double digits in the points classification.

Title holder Los Angeles Lakers lost for the fourth time in the last five games.

Washington Wizards was too strong with 116-107.

Russell Westbrook won his thirtieth triple-double of the season, with eighteen points, eighteen rebounds and fourteen assists.
