What started as a bumpy month for the Warriors, who lost four of March’s first six games, ended on a high note as they look ahead to the final weeks of the regular season. Golden State is now 42-32, has won five of their last seven games, and has a magic number of just five to wrap up their first playoff birth since 2007.
Mark Jackson‘s team has found a way to persevere through any struggles that they have had and get back on track before they found themselves free falling out of the standings. The Warriors have maintained a grasp on the sixth seed of the Western Conference standings for the better part of the second half. With just eight games remaining in the regular season, Mark Jackson is on his way to keeping his promise of making the playoffs in just his first full season as head coach.
The Warriors are off until Wednesday night when they host the New Orleans Hornets. This will give the Warriors some much needed rest at home. There have been times when they have appeared to be fatigued in recent weeks. Taking advantage of their favorable schedule will be key for the Warriors as they look to close out the regular season in style.
