With the Nuggets' loss on Sunday night, the Jazz have qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Quin Snyder's team is on pace to record Utah's best record since 2010.

Justin Verrier ESPN Staff Writer 

With their playoff hopes on life support, the Pelicans, sans DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain), dominate the Nuggets, the current eighth seed in the West, 115-90 in Denver. New Orleans is now four games back with nine to play and has a well-rested Anthony Davis (31 points, 15 rebounds in 28 minutes) for tomorrow night in Utah.

Each loss is crucial the rest of the way for the Knicks (27-46), who are in a 3-way tie with Philadelphia and Orlando for the fourth-worst record in the league. Sacramento (28-45) fell a game 'behind' this trio with a win Sunday over the Clippers. It's highly unlikely that the Knicks catch Phoenix (22-52) for the third-worst record in the league.
