Golden State Warriors has officially locked up first place in the Western Conference.

Warriors secured a No. 1 finish with a convincing 131-104 victory over the Clippers in its last regular season game at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors' players wore throwback jerseys on this meaningful night, as they will move to a new arena and call San Francisco home beginning in 2019-20.

It was fitting that the franchise's cornerstone, Stephen Curry, led all scorers with 27 points on the night. Six other Warriors also reached double-figures.

Landry Shamet led the Clippers' well-rounded scoring effort with 17 points.

Golden State is the favorite to take home this year's NBA championship and it'll likely face the Thunder or Spurs in the first round of the post-season.
