When the Golden State Warriors made the playoffs two years ago, then-coach Mark Jackson got teary eyed just talking about the accomplishment and owner Joe Lacob offered handshakes and hugs to players in a celebratory locker room.

Now the Warriors have their sights set so high they barely even recognize the feat.

The Warriors sealed their postseason berth during a timeout late in the second quarter when they learned Oklahoma City lost 119-115 at Dallas. The videoboards above halfcourt displayed “CLINCHED,” and fans inside the sold-out arena gave the home team a standing ovation.
