(45-33)
(29-48)
For the first time in six years, the Warriors are heading to the NBA Playoffs. The Warriors clinched their spot in the postseason with Tuesday’s 105-89 win over the Timberwolves in front of another electric crowd at Oracle Arena, the 30th straight sellout on Warriors Ground. Klay Thompson had the hot hand early, scoring 25 of his game-high 30 points in the first half and Stephen Curry (24 points, 10 assists), David Lee (15 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists) and Harrison Barnes (15 points, 10 rebounds) each had double-doubles in the playoff clincher. Andrew Bogut played outstanding defense on Minnesota’s Nikola Pekovic, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, and totaled 14 rebounds and three blocks. The Warriors have four games left in the regular season to secure their playoff seeding, and that regular season-ending stretch opens on Thursday against the Thunder.
Mark Jackson
On tonight's win:
"I thank God. Incredible, incredible blessing. I appreciate the journey a lot more, especially when you go through it with some folks, folks that paid the price and are united. It was an incredible feeling and well deserved by this group of guys, this ownership group, this management group and this incredible fan base. Truly a blessing."
On his emotional state after the game:
"We celebrated and rightfully so. People questioned us and they should have. People doubted us and they should have. They underestimated the heart, the desire, the work ethic, the determination and the willingness to put in the time."
On what he said to the players after the game:
"I talked to them. I told them 'Don't you dare go to the baggage claim because this is just a layover and not our final destination. Celebrate that we got here, but this is not our final destination."
On when he found out the Utah Jazz lost:
"It was whispered in my ear and I saw it on the scoreboard and at halftime I let them know that they were 24 minutes away from accomplishing what they had chased, some for an entire career and they deserved it. We are not going to hide it. We are not done, but I tell you what, I'm not going to say the standard line - this is a heck of an accomplishment. There are people in this area that have been waiting for this for a long time. I see security guards high-fiving and smiling, I see concession people high-fiving and smiling and I see media people high-fiving and smiling. It's been a long time. It's a great, great accomplishment and I'm just extremely humbled and blessed to be a part of it."
On what he felt when he talked with the players:
"I'm a sensitive guy. There is no shame in my game. I'm an emotional, sensitive guy. When you live long enough you learn to appreciate the process, the struggle and the accomplishments. I cried because I know what these guys put into it. I know what they mean to each other. I cried because I know there could be somebody else in the suit and tie sitting in the big chair."
On Klay Thompson tonight:
"It was great. There are some people that tell Klay (Thompson) to stop shooting - he's a great shooter. He's going to make shots for us. It was great to see him get it going and keep it going. He kept us in this ballgame in the first half with his offense and his shot making."
David Lee
On making the playoffs:
"It means everything. This was our team goal to start the season. This is what we came out here to do. We had an unbelievable home-court advantage all year that really helps us. We're just proud of our team, the organization and the fans."
On the team not having energy until the third quarter:
"We just came out, it was a big a game and we played to the best of our ability. They're a good team that continues to fight. Give them credit, but we turned it around in the second half when we needed to."
On the keys to being a playoff team:
"Playoff teams are a combination of two things: finding a way to stay above water on the road, and taking care of your home. If you can do that, you can be a playoff team, and we've done an unbelievable job at home this year."
On moving forward upon clinching the playyoffs
"Yeah, once again, us celebrating tonight has nothing to do with relaxing. We're very excited about reaching this next step as a franchise, but at no point does that mean that our business is taken care of. We're ready for a tough Oklahoma City team to come in here next and try to take care of our home once again, finish this season out right and then look forward to the playoffs."
On making the playoffs for the first time in his career:
"This has been one of the few times that I've had the chance to contribute to a team, be a major guy, and that we've had the firepower to have a chance to make the playoffs."
Stephen Curry
On making the playoffs:
"It means everything. You can just listen to this crowd. You guys are the best fans in the NBA and you deserve this as much as we do. We're ready to go."
On Klay Thompson's performance:
"He was huge tonight. Our defense was a little suspect to start the game. The way he kept us in it by scoring baskets and making plays on the defensive end, it was huge. We expect that these last four games and into the playoffs for him to be a difference maker for us."
On the team's objectives for the next four games:
"Keep the sixth spot, continue to play good basketball. Just because we made the playoffs, we don't want that to be the only thing we accomplish this year. We have bigger dreams and bigger goals on the horizon. Four more games to continue that push and see what happens come next weekend."
On how excited he is to shave his beard:
"I cannot wait, let's do it."
Andrew Bogut
On when he knew the team was likely headed for the postseason:
"After last game, probably. It's not a given in the NBA until you get there, so we didn't want to take any chances. We can build on this, we can still improve to succeed. We're not there yet."
On if finding out at halftime that Utah lost provided extra motivation:
"Not really. Maybe somewhat, but we just had to come out there and shore up the defense in the third quarter, and that's what turned the game on its head."
Klay Thompson
On clinching the playoffs:
"It felt great; I was right there with them. We put in so much work this offseason. This is one of our many goals; feels good to clinch, especially for guys like David Lee, Steph (Curry), all the guys. Playoffs, people think it's easy to get there but it's not. You've got to have a great team, especially in the West which is a very loaded conference. I'm spoiled right now, it's my second year, starting, and I'm already in the playoffs."
On moving forward upon clinching the playoffs:
"Well you enjoy it tonight. You earned it, so enjoy it tonight, but you've got to wake up tomorrow morning and just treat every game like it's the most important game, knowing that these last few games are very important for playoff positioning and it's just the start of something. We're not a team that's first round prey, we're a team that wants to make it to the finals and make some noise. So we've got the guys to do it, and like I said, you've got to enjoy tonight, but that's it. Come back tomorrow morning ready to work."
SEEKING A SWEEP
The Playoff Push continues as the Warriors host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. The Warriors have won each of their previous three meetings with the Timberwolves this season, most recently a one-point win in Minnesota on February 24 that wasn’t decided until a last-second shot attempt by Luc Ridnour was off the mark, and will look to complete the season sweep. The Warriors’ are on the verge of securing a postseason berth and can clinch a playoff spot with a win on Tuesday night and a loss by EITHER the Jazz or the Lakers.
LAST TIME OUT
The Warriors threatened a fourth-quarter comeback, but in the end fell short in Sunday’s 97-90 home loss to a Utah Jazz team fighting for its playoff life. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 22 points and Klay Thompson scored 15 of his 20 points in the second half, while David Lee turned in his NBA-leading 52nd double-double of the season with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Down by 11 with just more than four minutes remaining, the Warriors cut their deficit to three and had a chance to tie, but could never get that game-changing bucket.
RECORD WATCH
While the team’s collective focus is on the ongoing playoff push, it is still worth noting that Stephen Curry has a chance to become part of NBA history. He currently has 247 made 3-pointers, trailing Ray Allen’s all-time single-season NBA record of 269 made threes, set during Allen’s 2005-06 season with Seattle. In order for Curry to break the record, he would need to average at least 4.6 made treys over the five remaining games in the season. Every 3-pointer Curry makes carries increased significance, as the guard is donating three life-saving bed nets for each 3-pointer he makes this season to the Nothing But Nets campaign, which distributes insecticide-treated mosquito nets to protect families across Africa from malaria.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Keep an eye on the Warriors bigs in this game. Both David Lee and Carl Landry have enjoyed tremendous success against the Timberwolves this season. Lee, who leads the NBA in double-doubles (52) and 20-and-10 games (30), has averaged 19.0 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists against Minnesota, while Landry has averaged 17.3 points and 8.3 boards in those three games. Andrew Bogut has yet to play against Minnesota this season, so it will be interesting to see what kind of impact he’ll have against a bull in the middle in Nikola Pekovic.
MINNESOTA SCOUTING REPORT
For a team that has been out of the playoff hunt for quite some time, the Timberwolves certainly aren’t playing like it. Minnesota has won three of its last four games, with two of those victories coming at the expense of playoff bound opponents. Leading the charge will be bruising center Nikola Pekovic, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week who has averaged 25.0 points and 8.5 rebounds over the last four games. In addition to slowing down Pekovic, the Warriors will also look to limit the production of Derrick Williams, who had 23 points on 9-of-15 shooting and 12 rebounds in Minnesota’s last game against the Warriors. Lastly, keep an eye on Ricky Rubio. The Spanish guard is one of the league’s most skilled passers, and is a threat to post a triple-double whenever he takes the floor.
