Curry's 30 lead Warriors to sweep after 121-95 win over Jazz

Durant leads Warriors over Jazz

: Warriors Look To Close Out Jazz on Monday

Even though Rockets-Spurs is tied up in games, none of them have been truly memorable with an average margin of victory of 21.25 PPG. Golden State swept them 4-0.

If you watch postgame press conferences, you will hear a common theme from Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue, LeBron James and other players.

But, before we get into who is standing in their way - Houston/San Antonio and likely Cleveland - let's consider who they have beaten to reach 7-0 in the playoffs. Draymond Green did the things Draymond Green (17/10/11 in 35 minutes) does better than anyone else, and the Warriors simply eroded Utah's will to stay alive.

"We had a really good year, and that's a really good team", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said after the game. Utah has not been blown out of the water by any stretch of the imagination.

All three games have pretty much gone the same way.

Per Slater, receiving seven technical fouls results in a one-game suspension.

"Whatever happened in the game was going to happen", Durant said.

Kerala SSLC results declared, pass percentage 95.98
A private school in Malappuram district complained that the same questions were asked in the SSLC exams for the model examination. The results will be available in all high schools and higher secondary schools as they are equipped with broadband facility.

Golden State and the Cavaliers do have some competitive history.

Utah is the latest team searching for answers on how to slow down Golden State's offense.

Thompson rebounded from a six-point effort in Game 3 with back-to-back jumpers out the gate. Think about it - can you recall off the top of your head any truly great playoff games this year aside from Wizards-Celtics Game 2 when Isaiah Thomas went off for 53 in an overtime win?

Perhaps it will be Thompson's time to shine in Game 4.

"It was important for us to close out this series, you never want to drag a series out and suddenly you get knick-knack injuries and all those things", Draymond Green told NBA TV after the game.

The Jazz went on a 14-2 second quarter run with Curry on the bench. They had another 12-3 run in the third quarter. And as the quarter winded down, Hayward was treated to chants of "Gor-don Hay-ward" as he left the game, and rightfully so. They were able to trim the Dubs led down to 8 points at halftime (60-52). They lost George Hill after Game 2 against the Warriors, and although they didn't win a game in this series, they didn't back down after losing him, either. 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. Utah won far more admiration for its obstinacy than a team that led for only 11 minutes in an entire series, but obstinacy alone isn't enough. The Cavaliers pushed against the spread in both of their close-out games this playoff season. The dominance of the Warriors was shown convincingly in this series.
