Warriors First Again to Clinch Playoff Berth – The Golden State Warriors were without Kevin Durant‘s big presence on both ends of the court. The NBA’s best team won anyway thanks to the Splash Brothers and their supporting cast, and locked up another playoff berth in the process. Stephen Curry scored 27 points while Durant missed his first game of the season with a hand injury, and the Warriors beat the Brooklyn Nets 112-95 on Saturday night to clinch a playoff spot for the fifth straight season. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Warriors are the first team to clinch a playoff spot this early on the calendar since the 1985-86 Celtics, who also clinched Feb. 25 of that season.
