In Wednesday night’s Duke Brotherhood Playoff Action, the Knicks and the Grizzlies are out of the playoffs with New York losing to Atlanta 103-89 and the Grizzlies falling to Quin Snyder’s Jazz 126-110. Los Angeles lost to the Mavericks 105-100 to go down 3-2 and the Philadelphia 76ers eliminated Washington 129-112.

The Sixers didn't have Joel Embiid, out with an injury, but Seth Curry made sure it didn't matter, having a career night with 30 points. Curry shot 10-17 overall and 3-6 from deep.

In New York’s loss, RJ Barrett scored 17 on 5-14 from the floor and 2-6 from behind the line. The Knicks had a wonderful season up until the playoffs. There’s a lot of work to do but no matter how you look at it, optimism should be the order of the day. At long last, things are going the right way.

For Memphis, Grayson Allen played 15 minutes but scored just two points. Tyus Jones had four points and two assists and two rebounds. Justise Winslow, getting his first minutes in the playoffs after being injured for some time, got three minutes and with one board and one assist.

In the Clippers loss, Luke Kennard did not play.

On Thursday, the Denver Nuggets, featuring Austin Rivers, and the Portland Trail Blazers, with Harry Giles, meet again with Denver up 3-2.
