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

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

He's coached now by fellow former Devil Quin Snyder and though the Jazz were eliminated Monday night by the Golden State Warriors in four games, Utah's future is bright: the team won 51 games and has a very solid, very long core.

Green is back, in full, and was a key component in the Warriors' sweep of the Jazz, finishing them off with a Game 4 triple-double - 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

The Warriors will face the victor of the San Antonio Spurs-Houston Rockets series after sweeping a conference semifinal for the first time since current National Basketball Association playoff format began in 1984. A NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors would be of total epic proportions. They were a different team this season when he was healthy, and you'd have a tough time designing a point guard who fits better with their personnel. Draymond Green hit his third 3 of the game and 20th in eight playoff games, turning and staring at a heckling fan in a light blue shirt behind the Warriors bench that had been heckling him.

"I thought for the most part we were in tune with what our coverages needed to be", acting head coach Mike Brown said. You have to be nearly ideal every possession or they turn it into an 8-0 run, 9-0 run, 10-0 run.

"Hopefully we can continue to build on the future here and have fun doing it", said Hill. "I knew they were going to make some runs". 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.

Stephen Curry scored 30 points and Klay Thompson added 21 for Golden State. Curry then drained consecutive 3s and the rout was on. Golden State outscored the Jazz 39-17 in the period while limiting Utah to 6-of-25 shooting (24 percent) from the field.

Utah closed the half on 12-2 run - highlighted by back-to-back 3-pointers from Joe Ingles and Exum - and cut the Warriors' lead to 60-52 going into the locker room. Golden State more than doubled up Utah and it appeared this might turn into a blowout early.

"That doesn't matter right now for us", Curry said of the Cavaliers' parallel success in these playoffs. "Regardless if they win or not, I think we're a better team". It was apropos tonight. If we've got something that we need to talk over, we're gonna talk it over. The No. 1 seed in the Western Conference took care of the Portland Trail Blazers in four games in the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs series, winning three times in the first round. Tucker, acquired at the trade deadline to beef up Toronto's front line, are free agents. The last time the World Series featured the same opponents three years in a row was almost a century ago.

On Monday, this momentum took physical form in another dynamic first quarter-blasting out to a 39-17 lead-that was nearly a mirror image of their 45-23 first-quarter stomping of Portland in the Game 4 close out last round.

Thomas said it was up to his team to make the Wizards pay for giving him so much defensive attention.
