In Sunday’s Duke Brotherhood Playoff Watch, the Atlanta Hawks took out Seth Curry and the 76ers 128-124 while the LA Clippers knocked the Dallas Mavericks out of the playoffs 126-111.

Luka Doncic had 46 points, 14 boards and seven assists for the Mavs but it wasn’t enough as Luke Dennard and the Clippers rolled. Kennard finished with 11 points in 15 minutes.

Now the Clippers will move on to play Quin Snyder’s Utah Jazz next.

Atlanta ran away from Philly for much of the game before the 76ers rallied but it wasn’t enough.

For the Sixers, Curry had 21 points on 7-12 and 5-9 from three point range.

Cam Reddish is injured and not available.

On Monday, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets will try to go up 2-0 on the Milwaukee Bucks while Austin Rivers and the Denver Nuggets open the series with the Phoenix Suns.
