The Golden State Warriors locked up the 8th overall seed in the Western Conference on Sunday with a 112-101 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Stephen Curry scored 44 points to shore up the 2020-21 NBA scoring title as well. Now, the Dubs are watching a few late games to see who they will face in the NBA play-in tournament this upcoming week. Steph got in his bag in this one. Look out 7-seed!

The Warriors will likely play either the Los Angeles Lakers or Portland Trail Blazers in the play-in tournament on Wednesday night. Whoever wins that game will be awarded the 7-seed and will face either the Utah Jazz or Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA playoffs, which will begin on Saturday, May 22. The Suns won on Sunday and can get the top seed in the West if the Jazz somehow lose to the Sacramento Kings.
