Warriors march on to conference finals with sweep of Jazz

The Warriors established a 3-0 lead in the series thanks to a 102-91 win on the road in Game 3 on Saturday night.

If the Spurs make the Western Conference finals no one will be surprised, but I truly think Houston, despite losing 3-1 to the Spurs in the season series, matches up well enough with them to topple them. It's the second straight year the Cavs have gone 8-0 in the first two rounds. Yes, 14. Six points lost in 43 seconds.

Gordon Hayward led the Jazz with 25 points and Shelvin Mack chipped in 18.

A Portland team with a disastrous defensive scheme and an offence based primarily on their backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum going toe-totoe with Golden State. Considering the firepower and balance the Warriors possess, as well as the way they're now playing, it wouldn't exactly be unfathomable to see them romp the competition the rest of the way.

"Draymond Green, the fact that he's such a unique defender, he can guard five positions". Durant and Draymond Green both received technical fouls in the contest, which, in itself, isn't a big deal. Golden State also limited the Jazz to just 41 points during the final two quarters.

"We have multiple defenders that can guard multiple positions", Durant said.

The season may not be over but the way it feels now only LeBron and company taking their foot off the gas will prolong it. The doctors and trainers and medical people were just telling him he shouldn't try to go because he was in so much pain".

As it turns out, Jackson wanted to maintain the union during his presidency and held federal law in high regard. Trump paid tribute to Jackson, known as "Old Hickory", by visiting Jackson's grave in Tennessee in March .

No matter how close this game was, or any game for that matter, it was never quite in reach. "Once we rebound the basketball, we push and we like our chances in transition".

The four Warrior all-stars closed out the series in spectacular fashion.

NEED TO KNOW: Golden State has won a franchise-record seven consecutive playoff games in a single postseason and only one victory was by fewer than 11 points. Among National Basketball Association games today, Utah Jazz can turn out to be in great trouble with Kevin Durant's Performance. Despite the sweep, the Jazz put up a fight and had a great season.

Despite being clobbered on the head with a 24-point first quarter deficit, the Jazz clawed back and kept it close in the third quarter, cutting the lead to 6. Seven total turnovers tied a postseason low.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr remains out after having a spinal cord leak procedure at Duke University on Friday. Brown took over as acting coach for Game 3 of the first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. This time, there is no 3-1 collapse - just a long, hard slog that Stephen Curry & Co. pull out in another epic Game 7.

Golden State came out firing - the threes were falling, the ball was moving, they were aggressive on defense then turning misses into transition buckets the other way. Hayward and Gobert have played well the past two games, but Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles have regressed from a strong first round against the Los Angeles Clippers.
