Game Links #79: Golden State Warriors 112 @ LA Lakers 95 - We're back in the playoffs, baby!


Saturday 4/12/2014

- The Warriors are warning fans about the the potential dangers of buying tickets from a non-verified 3rd party.

- There was no celebration after clinching. Instead, it was more of a "move on to the next step".

- It's actually still possible to get the 5th seed, and the Rockets might be a more favorable 1st around opponent.
Diamond Leung: Warriors have chance to boost playoff stature

- This is what it would take to rise up to the 5th seed, or fall to the 7th seed.

- Here's an update on the East and West playoff picture.
Associated Press: NBA playoff picture remains cluttered

- Before the SCWarriors-LA D-Fenders Game 2, Nemanja Nedovic talked about recovering from his concussion.

- The fans in LA aren't very happy with the Warriors. First, the Warriors clinched a playoff spot on their home floor. The loss also set a franchise record for most losses in a season. And to top it off, the SCWarriors beat the LA D-fenders in tonight's Game 2 of a best-of-3 series, knocking LA out of the D-League playoffs. I felt bad for them.

Notes

- Jermaine O'Neal DNP presumably due to the back-to-back and age.
- Andre Iguodala DNP presumably due to the knee tendinitis.


What's next?

- Our work isn't done. We may be a lock for the playoffs, but we're not a lock for 6th. I'm not sure how many wins we need or how many losses the Mavericks/Suns/Grizzlies need to clinch 6th, but we need to keep playing to win until we do.
