FINAL: Warriors fall 132-117 to the Grizzlies. More importantly, though, it looks like Golden State will face the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) April 11, 2019
Kevin Durant apparently wanted to make sure he used up his technical fouls for the year.
Durant just picked up his 16th tech for walking into the referee. Good news for Golden State: It's the last regular-season game, and the clock resets in the playoffs. He won't be suspended.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) April 11, 2019
And the champs made some history tonight.
Klay Thompson is appearing in his 615th career game, passing Purvis Short (614) for the 10th most regular season games played in Warriors history. Thompson is the franchise's all-time leader in postseason games played with 102.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) April 11, 2019
But this game mercifully marks the end of the longest regular season in Warriors history. Never before has a team wanted to fast forward to the playoffs as quickly as this roster. Finally, they can turn the Playoff Switch all the way on, and the world can witness the fury of a fully weaponized superteam.
#1 seed? Check
Health? Pending Steph Curry’s rehab the rest of this week, check.
Firing on all cylinders? Check.
Now it’s time to get revenge on Doc Rivers and the Clippers, the last team to eliminate the Warriors in the Western Conference playoffs. #badabing #badaboom
