While the Celtics needing all 48 minutes to beat the winless 76ers, there were 22 other NBA teams in action last night. Here are some things you should know:


1. The Nets lost to the Thunder 110-99. They are 3-12. The Celtics own the Brooklyn Nets 2016 first-round draft pick.

2. The Timberwolves beat the Hawks 99-95. They are now 7-8, which has them tied with the Clippers and Suns for the seven and eight seed in the Western Conference playoffs, and a half-game back of the Jazz for the sixth seed. Minnesota will convey their first-round pick to the Celtics only if it falls between 13-30.  If Minnesota's pick falls between 1-12, they will instead convey their second-round picks in 2016 and 2017.

3. The Mavericks lost the the Spurs 88-83. They are now 9-7. Dallas will convey their first-round pick to the Celtics only if it falls between 8-30.  If Dallas' pick falls between 1-7, the conditional 2016 pick will become a 2017 first-round pick with the same conditions.


4. The Knicks lost to the Magic 100-91.

5. The 76ers fell to the Celtics 84-80.

6. The Raptors beat the Cavaliers 103-99.

7. The Nets lost to the Thunder 110-99.
