Instead of a line outside the Sporting Goods store in Concord, there's only the window washer. Warriors merchandise is now being moved to a less prominent location. Unfortunately, much of it is on the clearance table.

"It was a good game they worked hard they lost hair they played their heart out," said Levi Evans, a Warriors fan.

Here are 7 of the many records that the Golden State Warriors have broken this season -- Go Dubs!




"I tried to drink my sorrows away last night. You know, every day is a new day and we will do it next year," said Brody O'Brien, a Warriors fan.

The owner of Heads Up Sports in Concord actually got some sleep. A win would have meant picking up championship T-shirts at different printing shops from San Jose to San Francisco.

"It would've been insane. I would have been up at 3:30 a.m. I have 5 pick-up points for picking up T-shirts all over the Bay Area. And I would have had a line out the store at this point," said Dennis Danzinger of Heads Up Sports.

Instead, his store is empty.

But being in the Bay Area, there is always something else to look forward to.

"No lines yet, but we have a first place baseball team," he said.

Meanwhile, the Warriors will officially wrap up the season on Monday at the team's practice facility. Players Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will meet with reporters later today.
