Golden State led 28-17 after one quarter and 57-41 at halftime.
The Warriors were without injured two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry in Oakland on Saturday but did not lack firepower with Klay Thompson, largely guarded by Canberra-born Mills, lethal with 27 points on 11 of 13 field goals and five of six three-pointers.
Warriors won three of their last four fixtures against Spurs and have collected 107 victories from their 167 encounters overall.
The Warriors will play in Game 1 of their first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday. This year, they became the first team in National Basketball Association history to close the regular season on a 16-game winning streak, surging to the No. 3 seed in the East.
"We've got a chance", said LeBron James, who will be seeking his eighth straight trip to the finals. In a game that never saw the home team fall behind in points, the Warriors proved all of their recent doubters wrong.
After perhaps the most apathetic 58-win regular season in league history, Golden State clings to the belief that heightened stakes will be enough for it to suddenly start playing up to its abilities.
Iguodala has spent most of the past couple weeks coping with tendinitis. That's made it hard on everybody and our players. The trio of Thompson, Durant and Green did their usual damage, but the seamless transition into the starting roles by McGee and Iguodala made the difference and left the Spurs in the dust. Danny Green and Patty Mills were nearly absent offensively, and on the other end, Mills too often found himself switched onto Kevin Durant.
Durant simply turned, realized his defender couldn't block his vision and took the open look.
The Dubs are number one in the league in assist percentage of 68.5 with an assist ratio of 21.1 averaging nearly 30 assists per game. Similarly to Curry, Durant was also extremely efficient from the floor. If that continues to happen, Durant will feast on smaller opponents. We are going for it.
What the Warriors lack in playoff-win quantity they make up for in quality.
The most important matchup in this series will be down low, as Golden State's primary focus needs to be on making sure that Draymond Green can LaMarcus Aldridge under wraps. The Spurs (7) are without star Kawhi Leonard, who has missed most of the season.
The Warriors largely ignored Murray as an outside threat, preferring to go under screens against the second-year guard.
The Spurs shot just 40 percent from the field. The Spurs entered the season with hopes of dethroning the Warriors as Western Conference champions.
