MILWAUKEE (AP) - - Ersan Ilyasova scored 21 points and the Milwaukee Bucks clinched a playoff spot with a 96-73 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.

Milwaukee also secured the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, a year after a franchise-worst 67-loss season.

O.J. Mayo added 17 points for the Bucks.

Brook Lopez had his 17th double-double of the season with 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Nets. They are eighth in the East, a game behind Boston after the Celtics' victory Sunday over Cleveland. That race will be sorted out over the final few days of the season, with Indiana also bearing down on the Nets and Celtics.
