Saturday night, the Golden State Warriors notched their forty-ninth win of the season with a 112-95 victory over the visiting Brooklyn Nets. In the process, the Warriors clinched their fifth straight playoff birth. Stephen Curry went for twenty-seven points and five assists and Klay Thompson added in twenty-four points of his own. Kevin Durant did not dress for the game as he sat out with a left hand contusion.
The Golden State Warriors clinched their fifth straight playoff appearance in just fifty-eight games. The Warriors clinched a playoff birth at the same exact game total as last year, but this time clinched the berth two days earlier than last year. This makes the Warriors the fastest team to clinch a birth to the playoffs in NBA history. This feat is truly incredible as it shows how much better the Warriors are than a majority of the teams in the NBA today. Catch the next Golden State Warriors game today as they take on the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at 4 p.m.!
