andrew flores has highlights in morning sports. >> good morning, everyone. the warriors officially got their checkmark. i'm talking playoffs, not twitter. the dubs punching their ticket to the postseason for the seventh year in a row. steph was full of energy against okc, even taking a midgame bike ride. now, he became just the fifth player in warriors franchise history to score 16,000 career points, 14 for him in the first, and oh, check out the moves. defended nicely, but he creates space and hits the stepback three. dubs up 18 at half. frustrating game for russell westbrook. he runs right into klay and earned his 16th technical foul. he'll be out for next game. third quarter, klay thompson finished up strong. he had 23, another big game for boogie cousins. watch this now. boogie gets bumped, blocked, stays with it, and will beat the shot clock. he had a dozen points, eight rebounds and six assists. steph made five 3s, hits another

5:46 am
intensity has been there because that's what it takes against great teams on the road. >> the warriors may not be playing the way they'd like to be at this point, but they leave for san antonio knowing they're on their way to that complete game that they're looking for before the playoffs. in oklahoma city, mindi bach, abc7 sports. thanks, mindi! to the ice, sharks hosting the predators. they gave up a goal just 1:07 into the game, but tie it in the second. timo meier, his 27th of the season. nashville responds just 33 seconds later. the shot goes off the leg of victor arvidsson, 2-1 predators. and brett burns with the pass to joe thornton for the easy tap-in. 2-2 after two. but in the third, forsberg with the wrap-around off the stick. predators win it, 4-2. the sharks have lost two straight. that's a look at your morning sports. i'm anthony flores. have a great sunday. all right, now it's time to check in with meteorologist

5:52 am
environment, and they were affected. >> reporter: the biosentinel lab's experience will focus on the exposure over steppeded periods. heat shield development continues at nasa ames so spacecraft can withstand extreme temperatures when returning to earth or landing on other planets. even the shape of the spacecraft has to be considered. >> how you operate the mission dictates the materials and the shapes or geometries that you choose for your entry probe. >> reporter: this test chamber at the gun range determines where it is safe to land on the moon by shooting projectiles. it was used in the apollo program. in this era of super computing and simulation modeling, one has to wonder, would technology dating back to 1966 still be applicable today? >> there's a lot more complexity and detail in what's going on with the impact events than they ornlly theoriztheorized. >> this is expected to lead to a new era of deep space
