REIGNING NBA CHAMPIONS the Golden State Warriors locked up first place in the Western Conference thanks to Sunday’s 131-104 blowout win against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Golden State secured the west’s number one seed in their last regular-season game at Oracle Arena after 47 years as they prepare to move to Chase Center in San Francisco.

The Warriors marked the occasion by wearing throwback jerseys – famously known as the “We Believe” era uniforms worn during the team’s run to the 2007 playoffs, which were used from 2002 to 2010.

It was fitting that the franchise’s cornerstone, Stephen Curry, led all scorers with 27 points. Six other Warriors also reached double-figures.

Landry Shamet led the Clippers’ well-rounded scoring effort with 17 points.

Karl-Anthony Towns posted 35 points in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 132-126 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Cavs’ Clarkson and his shooting woes

Jordan Clarkson scored two points on one-of-eight shooting in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 112-90 defeat to the San Antonio Spurs.

Kyle Lowry scored five points on one-of-eight shooting as the Toronto Raptors downed the Miami Heat 117-109 in overtime.

McGee with the slam!

JaVale McGee threw an alley-oop into the hoop with force in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 113-109 win against the Utah Jazz.
