The Golden State Warriors have officially clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.

In their final regular season game at Oracle Arena, the Warriors defeated the LA Clippers 131-104 behind 27 points from Stephen Curry.

Golden State paid tribute to the 'We Believe'-era Warriors in this contest, rocking the jerseys the team wore from 2002-2010.

The victory puts the Warriors at 56-24, 2.5 games ahead of the Denver Nuggets with only two games remaining.

This marks the fourth time in five years that Golden State has earned the top seed in the West, taking it back from the Houston Rockets who earned the No. 1 spot a season ago.

Their first round opponent remains unclear yet but one thing is for certain - it will either be the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, or the Clippers.

Currently, the Thunder sit at No. 6 while the Spurs and Clippers are both a half-game back from them. OKC still has two games to play while San Antonio and Los Angeles only have one game remaining.

The Spurs hold the tiebreaker over the Thunder and Clippers and are the only team of the three to win their season series against the Warriors (2-1).

OKC and L.A. tied the season series and currently have the same record against the Western Conference and with one game remaining against West opponents each, those results would decide who takes the tiebreaker should one team win and the other lose.

The Warriors beat the Thunder 2-games-to-1 and the Clippers 3-games-to-1 this season.
