Keegan Murray scored 32 points, De’Aaron Fox added 24 and the Sacramento Kings stayed alive in the play-in tournament, eliminating the Golden State Warriors with a 118-94 victory. Sacramento advanced to play at New Orleans on Friday night with a chance to return to the playoffs as the eighth seed in the Western Conference after snapping an NBA record 16-year playoff drought last season. The loss kept Golden State out of the playoffs for the third time in the past five seasons, including two eliminations in the play-in tournament.

LeBron James had 23 points, nine assists and nine rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers secured a playoff berth with a 110-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in the Western Conference play-in tournament.

But shortly after tying the game on a driving layup with 3:19 to go, Williamson went to the locker room with an unspecified leg injury. Anthony Davis had 20 points and 15 rebounds. De’Angelo Russell scored 21, hitting five 3-pointers. The Lakers open the playoffs Saturday at Denver. The Pelicans will host Sacramento on Friday with the winner receiving the No. 8 seed.
