Wins by Toronto, Brooklyn help Raptors clinch NBA play-in spot

The Toronto Raptors have clinched a spot in the NBA’s play-in round.

Toronto’s 128-108 win over the Charlotte Hornets earlier Sunday, coupled with the Brooklyn Nets’ 111-110 victory over the Utah Jazz, locked up the Raptors’ post-season spot.

The sixth through 10th-place teams in each conference advance to the play-in portion of the NBA’s post-season.

The play-in format sees the seventh and eighth seeds play each other and the ninth and 10th seeds face off.

The winner of the 7/8 game advances to the playoffs as the seventh seed and the loser faces the winner of the 9/10 game.

The winner of that game is then the eighth seed in the playoffs.
