Warriors Avoid Play-in; Will Play 3-Seed Kings in Round One

With a pair of dominant road wins over the Kings and Blazers, the Golden State Warriors secured a top-six seed in the Western Conference playoffs. This achievement means that they will avoid the play-in tournament that they had been flirting with for weeks. The Warriors finished with a 44-38 record and will take on the Sacramento Kings in a first-round 3-6 matchup that will begin on or after Saturday, April 15.

Despite heading into the weekend with a dismal 9-30 record on the road, the Warriors were gifted two easy wins as both the Kings and Blazers rested their key players. The Warriors took full advantage of the situation, posting an NBA-record 55 points in the first quarter of their Sunday game against the Blazers. They were even able to rest their starters midway through the third quarter.

The Clippers and Suns were also battling it out on Sunday, and the outcome would have an impact on the Warriors’ playoff seeding. A Clippers loss could have seen them relegated to the play-in tournament, while a Suns win would have locked the Warriors in as their playoff opponent. Ultimately, the Clippers won 119-114, securing the No. 5 seed and leaving the Warriors with the No. 6 seed.

In summary, the Golden State Warriors took care of business when it mattered most, clinching a top-six seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Despite a poor record on the road, they were gifted two easy wins and will now face off against the Sacramento Kings in the first round. The Warriors will hope to carry their momentum from the final two games of the regular season into the playoffs and make a deep run.
