Warriors claim final NBA playoff spot
PORTLAND, Ore. - After 12 straight seasons without a postseason appearance, the Golden State Warriors snapped the streak on the final day of the regular season. And on the road, no less.
"To all our fans back home, the curse is over," guard Baron Davis said. "Now we can come in and play the underdog in the playoffs."
Davis had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists, and the Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 120-98 Wednesday night to earn a playoff berth for the first time since 1994.
Golden State (42-40) claimed the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference and will indeed be the underdogs against the Dallas Mavericks, who have the league's best record at 67-15.
The Warriors went into the season finale against the Trail Blazers one game up on the Los Angeles Clippers, but made sure the Clippers' game against New Orleans didn't matter.
"Last day! Can you believe it?" coach Don Nelson exclaimed afterward.
