- Kevin Durant scored 38 points and the Golden State Warriors withstood a determined Utah effort to down the Jazz 102-91 on Saturday to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their NBA playoff series. The Warriors will try to close out the best-of-seven Western Conference second-round series in game four on Monday in Salt Lake City.Although the Warriors got off to another fast start, leading by 10 after the first quarter, the Jazz, fueled by a standout performance from French center Rudy Gobert, responded. They seized the lead in a game for the first time in the series when they went up 48-47 in the second period, and led 50-49 at half-time and led by nine in the third quarter before the Warriors reasserted themselves.
