INNEAPOLIS (AP) — Doc Rivers read the pre­sea­son pre

that said his team might win 35 games, at best. Nei­ther the Clip­pers coach nor his play­ers took much stock in all that. Now, they’re play­off-bound. Danilo Gal­li­nari scored 25 points and Los An­ge­les clinched a post­sea­son spot Tues­day night with a 122-111 win over the Min­nesota Tim­ber­wolves.

Rivers’club is back in the post­sea­son af­ter fall­ing short a year ago. The Clip­pers fin­ished 42-40 last sea­son, miss­ing the play­offs af­ter mak­ing it six straight years — four un­der Rivers.

“I’m just re­ally happy for our guys,” Rivers said. “Be­fore the year, we went through all the ar­ti­cles about us and how bad we were go­ing to be. . I just told them, they don’t know us.”
