The Warriors locked up the No. 1 seed in the West on Sunday night, but as the NBA reaches the final day of the regular season, they still don't know who will be coming to Oracle Arena this weekend in the playoffs.
The Clippers, Spurs and Thunder still are fighting for the No. 6 through 8 seeds in the Western Conference.
Oklahoma City stunned the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, and now sit one game ahead of both San Antonio and Los Angeles.
The Spurs hold the tiebreaker over the Clippers, so they occupy the No. 7 seed at the end of business Tuesday.
If all three teams win their games Wednesday, the Clippers will be bound for Oakland.
But the other potential scenarios will make your head spin.

-If the Clippers lose tomorrow, they're #8 seed.
-If Clippers win, Thunder win, Spurs lose, it's Spurs at #8.
-If Clippers win, Thunder lose, Spurs win, it's Thunder at #8
-If Clippers win, Thunder/Spurs lose, Spurs at #8
-If all three win, Clippers at #8 seed
The Thunder face the Bucks at 5 p.m. PT, and the Spurs play the Mavericks at the same time. The Clippers host the Jazz at 7:30 p.m. PT.
So, the Warriors, who play in Memphis at 5 p.m. PT, could know their opponent by the time their game ends. If OKC and San Antonio win their games, the Clippers result is irrelevant.
There still is much to be decided atop the West, as well.
The Nos. 2, 3 and 4 seeds also will be up for grabs Wednesday night.
The Denver Nuggets will clinch the No. 2 seed with a win over the Timberwolves. A loss, however, would push them to the No. 3 seed. Meanwhile, after the Rockets' loss Tuesday, Houston can only secure the No. 2 seed if the Nuggets lose.
James Harden and Co. will get the No. 3 seed with a Nuggets win and a loss by the Portland Trail Blazers to the Sacramento Kings. If both the Nuggets and Blazers win, the Rockets will get the No. 4 seed --potentially facing the Warriors in the second round.
If the Blazers beat the Kings and the Nuggets beat the T'Wolves then Portland will get the No. 3 seed, otherwise Rip City will get the fourth seed and face the Utah Jazz in the first round.
Our advice: Buckle up, because Wednesday will be a wild night of scoreboard watching.
