After missing the playoffs for 17 straight seasons, the Warriors are headed to the postseason for the fifth season in a row.
The Warriors took down the Nets 112-95 Saturday night at Oracle Arena to become the first team in the NBA to clinch a playoff berth this season.
Stephen Curry led all scorers with 27 points on the night. Curry also added five assists and went 5-of-10 on 3-point attempts.
Klay Thompson was right behind his Splash Brother with 24 points, four rebounds and four assists.
Replacing Kevin Durant (left hand contusion), rookie Patrick McCaw brought six points and four rebounds to the table. McCaw came up big on defense with two blocks as well.
The Warriors improved to 49-9 on the season with the win.
OAKLAND -- With Kevin Durant out of the Warriors lineup Saturday night with swelling in his left pinky finger, rookie wing Pat McCaw will start at forward against Brooklyn at Oracle Arena.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr made the announcement two hours before tipoff.
As for Durant, the contusion in his left pinky finger, sustained Thursday, is still in the healing process.
“Kevin’s hand is still a little swollen,” Kerr said. “It’s not anything we want to mess around with. We’ve got a long trip coming up, a lot of games. It made sense to give him the night off. We’ll have tomorrow off, flying in to Philadelphia. So hopefully the next couple days it’ll calm down and be fine. It’s kind of a day-to-day thing.”
The decision to start McCaw -- who often competes with Ian Clark for playing time -- was based mostly on how he matches up against the Nets.
“They both have my trust and my confidence,” Kerr said. “Both of them are very effective. It’s depending what we need. If we need ball movement and cutting, I’m more likely to go to Ian. He’s a great back-cutter and he gives our offense flow and he’ll make spot-up shots. If we need some size defensively, we’ll go to Patrick. They’ve both been effective. I wouldn’t say either one is ahead of the other. They’re both going to play.”
