Warriors march on to conference finals with sweep of Jazz

Stephen Curry scored 30 points as the Golden State Warriors wrapped up a series sweep with a 121-95 rout of the Utah Jazz on Monday.

Just a day after the Cleveland Cavaliers advances to the Eastern Conference Finals of the 2017NBA Playoffs, the Golden State Warriors will try to keep the momentum and sweep their rivals. Hill is listed as questionable for Game 4, so he might get playing time, but it's unclear how many minutes he'll receive.

Interim head coach Mike Brown also credited the communication between players, led by Green, for their defensive prowess. "Especially when he's as good as he is in the pick-and-roll game". Kerr had back surgery about two years ago and has been dealing with complications.

The Golden State Warriors (GSW) have put on a stellar show in the NBA Playoffs so far, but the question is, can they become the first team to go 16-0?

Golden State dominated the fourth quarter as Utah ran out of gas.

"We wanted to get out and get to a game", Jason Malloy said, Roy native.

They fell behind by 24 points in the first quarter, then, characteristic of them, they fought back, closing to within six in the second half. "That's not an excuse, he needs to gut through those things, and I think he has". "I've been really proud of him for that, because that's the only way you get better". KD poured in 38 points on 15-of-26 shooting in the 102-91 win. Rudy Gobert added 21 points and 15 rebounds. The over/under total for the game is listed at 206.5 points.

"We see the Bucks play the Jazz every year in Milwaukee and its not like here", Jason Malloy said. "It's an easy decision to at that moment (to defer to Durant late)".

Now the Cavaliers get to rest and practice again before their quest to defend their championship resumes, fully knowing a rematch with the Warriors awaits. Exum ignited the run with a finger-roll layup on the final Jazz possession of the first quarter.

Durant wasn't almost as productive as Game 4, when he popped 38 points, but his 18 points in this one were pretty timely. The Jazz closed within 68-63 after Mack drove for a floater. Others it is Curry, Thompson or Draymond Green.

Curry picked up right where he left off after an 11-point fourth quarter in Game 3 with a 14-point first quarter.

Hood is averaging only 9.6 points per game on 36 percent shooting, and 27 percent from three.

KD was on fire, and seriously pissed off at the Jazz mascot ... and the Jazz fans in general. The players understood, too, responding, even neck-deep in postgame disappointment, to the cheers with acknowledgment back, with appreciation and applause of their own, as the crowd chanted: "Gordon Hayward, Gordon Hayward, Gordon Hayward". "That's why they're who they are".

The Warriors win the Game 5 they feel they should have last year and top off two titles in three years behind the biggest free-agency acquisition since James. He has hit at least one 3 in all 65 playoff games he's played.
