Warriors sweep Jazz with 121-95 win in Game 4

Warriors sweep Jazz with 121-95 win in Game 4

In Game 3 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Utah Jazz, the Warriors had zero second-half turnovers.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Golden State Warriors' offense - led by former MVPs Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant - has overwhelmed the Utah Jazz for a 3-0 lead in the second-round Western Conference playoff series.

The Warriors will also watch the Rickets vs Spurs with interest as game 5 between the two teams is Tuesday and with the two teams tied at 2 games apiece, that series is assured of extending itself at least to a game 6.

It would be nice if the NBA Playoffs could deliver more lengthy series where the top teams are challenged in classic games... but my guess is if we do get another Warriors-Cavs epic then nobody will be complaining. The Warriors jumped out to a 22-point lead after one quarter of play and that was all they needed, as the Jazz were forced to scrape and claw back into things.

"Sometimes you think you're open because you've managed to shake free from one guy and they quickly switch out to cover for each other".

It was Draymond Green who took control on Monday, scoring 17 points with 10 rebounds and 11 assists for his third career triple-double.

Golden State joins the Cleveland Cavaliers as the only undefeated teams in this year's playoffs.

Curry buried back-to-back 3-pointers and Green cut to the rim for a hammer dunk to fuel an 8-0 spurt that gave the Warriors a 12-3 lead. Here's everything you need to know including Golden State Warriors vs Utah Jazz Game 4 live stream with the TNT Overtime, WatchTNT app and more.

The Jazz tried to put off their vacation.

The Warriors have won the first three games of this series with about 75 percent of their capability. If Golden State wins the next round, it will be the first time in franchise history it has gone to three consecutive NBA Finals. Dante Exum had 15 points off the bench, while Rudy Gobert chipped in 12 points and 13 rebounds.

There's just too much shooting, star power and defence for the Warriors not to be a favourite in every game they play. And as the quarter winded down, Hayward was treated to chants of "Gor-don Hay-ward" as he left the game, and rightfully so. Shelvin Mack started in his place. "We got blitzed. It would have been easy for that game to run away early, for us to keep it, throughout the course of the game to keep with within striking distance, speaks to how they approached the whole year". The Jazz were 18-15 during the regular season when Hill missed games. He was at Duke University on Friday seeing a specialist and owner Joe Lacob told Bloomberg Radio that Ker had a "spinal cord leak" procedure on his back. There is no timetable for his return.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr did not travel with the team as he continues to deal with back issues. Brown took over as acting coach for Game 3 of the first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers.
