Golden State Warriors have already clinched the Western Conference title a week ago. They are number one, with Home Field advantage when it comes to Playoffs. They were the 1st ones to clinch title followed closely by San Antonio Spurs behind 6 games and close third Oklahoma City. Warriors after their unfortunate loss to Boston, Celtics in the last few seconds by 3 points will be hosting Portland Trailblazers at home, on Sunday April 3rd at 5 pm Pacific time followed by Timber Wolves, again at home, April 5th, then the Spurs, on 7th, then their last 2 games away from Home will be Spurs again on April 10th and Memphis, Wednesday April 13th, making it the last game of regular season, before 1st set of playoffs start.
It is widely anticipated that the Spurs coach, Gregg Popovich may indirectly be helping the Warriors get their 73 win threshold, to be the only team in NBA to reach that. He will start resting his players as early as the 2nd meeting on April 7th at Oracle Arena, giving them an advantage in the playoff. Aquadala, back for the Timber Wolves, while Festes back couple of games after.
Still the big man, Andrew Bogut is still questionable after getting an injury to his already sore ribs…..
So Is the record Warriors are chasing or the Championship?
