Kevin Durant Drops 38, Warriors Hold Off Jazz in Game 3 for 3-0 Series Lead
The Golden State Warriors overcame sloppy shooting Saturday thanks to Kevin Durant‘s outstanding effort to earn a 102-91 victory and a 3-0 series lead over the host Utah Jazz in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals.
This was the first contest of the series played in Utah. Some of the Warriors made it known they would have preferred to play the Los Angeles Clippers because there’s more to do around town between games in Hollywood than in Salt Lake City.
However, the Jazz sprung to life for the first time in the series in front of their hometown fans. They finally held a lead in a game when they went up 48-47 late in the second quarter and continued to bring the fight to Golden State.
