Jaylen Brown, despite his premature departure following a scary fall, contributed enough to help the Boston Celtics qualify for the playoffs.

What made things even worse was the landing, with Brown's body being flung backwards resulting in his head and neck copping the worst of it in a heavy landing.

Warriors 110, Spurs 107 • In Oakland, Calif., Kevin Durant had 37 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots and nearly single-handedly led undermanned Golden State's fourth-quarter rally past San Antonio after Stephen Curry went down early.

Butler's absence has come at a most hard time, with the Wolves in the throes of an unrelenting stretch of games. Towns also gathered several offensive rebounds that led to scores or trips to the line.

The Celtics posted a 35-point first period for the second straight game, as they did to fuel their 105-89 win over the Bulls.

Brown raced to the rim after stealing the ball and dunked it while being fouled by Timberwolves swingman Andrew Wiggins with 1:31 left in the third. All the best to him.

Minnesota's Nemanja Bjelica scored a career-high 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting, including 6 for 9 from 3-point range.

Jamal Crawford had 15 points and four assists off the bench for the Timberwolves, and Jeff Teague had 13 points, eight assists and five rebounds.

Brown aggressively slammed the ball down for a two-handed dunk but he hung on to the rim for too long which nearly led to disaster. Towns later erased a Baynes layup attempt. He leads the National Basketball Association with 56 on the season. They trailed by as many as 18 points soon after halftime, too much to overcome some second-half surges behind Bjelica and 18 points from Taj Gibson on 8-for-10 shooting.

Devin Booker, wearing a headband for the first time in his three-year National Basketball Association career, had 30 points for Phoenix. His ability to shoot from the outside and finish at the rim, along with his solid defense, will be a valuable asset for the team down the stretch.
