The Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic clinched the Eastern Conference's final two postseason berths on Friday.

Brooklyn punched its ticket to the playoffs for the second straight season with a 119-106 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday, and Orlando later joined them after the Washington Wizards fell 118-107 to the New Orleans Pelicans.

Washington's 45th loss of the 2019-20 campaign officially eliminates them from playoff contention as the club remains winless in five seeding games.

Brooklyn fell in five games to the Philadelphia 76ers in the opening round of last season's playoffs and hasn't won a postseason series since the 2013-14 campaign.

Nets stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving won't be part of the club's playoff push due to injury.

Meanwhile, Orlando is also making back-to-back postseason appearances and looks to advance past the opening round of the playoffs for the first time in a decade.
