Steph Curry scored a game-high 27 as he led a very balanced Warriors attack in another win on their quest for 73.

The win also cinched the overall #1 seed for the Warriors and Golden State will have home-court advantage throughout the NBA playoffs. So much for the theory about Golden State getting tired:

Chicago Cubs outfielder, Kyle Schwarber sustained a sprained ankle and, potentially, a knee injury as well after a scary in-game collision. He’ll be receiving an MRI later this morning and the Wrigley faithful are sure to be checking their smart phones for updates.
