Curry Leads Warriors to Clinch Western Conference as Playoffs Draw Near, Panthers Hire New Coach After Firing Boughner on Sunday and Canadian Corey Conners Wins at Valero

Stephen Curry scored 27 points against the LA Clippers last night in the Warriors' final regular-season game. This win, their fifth straight, clinches the conference title for Golden State as they head into the playoffs. Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Atlanta Hawks last night, giving them their 60th regular-season victory and solidifying their Eastern conference title. The NBA playoffs begin on Saturday, April 13.

The Florida Panthers have already hired a new coach after firing Bob Boughner yesterday, the Associated Press reports. The franchise has brought in Joel Quenneville, who won three Stanley Cups with the Chicago Blackhawks. This reunites Quenneville with Panthers GM Dale Tallon, who hired him to coach the Blackhawks in 2008. Elsewhere, the Buffalo Sabres fired their coach of two years, Phil Housley, yesterday as well. The NHL playoffs begin this Wednesday.

The AP reports that Canadian golfer Corey Conners has won the Valero Texas Open. Conners shot a 6-under 66 and made three birdies in the final five holes. The victory earned him the final slot in the Masters next week.
