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

Prensa Internacional  Zuma Press  Icon Sportswire

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

Golden State will have a chance to close out the series with a victory in Game 4 on Monday at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The victor will be remembered for the last seven games more than the first eight, and the loser will be chastened to learn that the team they fell to is a frightful machine.

A Portland team with a disastrous defensive scheme and an offence based primarily on their backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum going toe-totoe with Golden State.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) shoots as Utah Jazz's Rudy Gobert (27) and Boris Diaw (33) defend in the first half during Game 4 of the NBA basketball second-round playoff series, Monday, May 8, 2017, in Salt Lak.

"The Warriors are playing at an extremely high-level right now, winning their first seven playoff games by 12, 29, 6, 25, 12, 11 and 11 points".

Durant wasn't almost as productive as Game 4, when he popped 38 points, but his 18 points in this one were pretty timely. He earned his second consecutive double-double against Utah and gave Golden State enough of a boost to win for the 22nd time in the team's past 23 games dating back to the regular season. One could argue that Game 3 was very competitive and much closer than that final score indicated. In the West, there has been something weird behind San Antonio's typical Spurs success, and it's not just me - people around the league have echoed those same feelings on what this team looks like. "I made a few shots there".

If there's an easier way to sweep an opponent, the Golden State Warriors probably will probably be the ones to accomplish such a feat. Some games it is Durant. Durant and Curry's legacies are secured and everyone kind of shrugs because there's nothing special or exciting about it - it's just what everyone expected.

Utah hasn't been able to match that arsenal in the first three games. Golden State has defeated Utah by 12 points, 11 points, and 11 points again. Iguodala scored 7 points in 22 minutes.

It allowed the Warriors to seize momentum in the fourth quarter. That theme goes like this: "If we can take care of business and sweep, then we get up to a week's worth of rest before the next series starts". "They're very tough to guard". The Warriors rallied, in part, due to the fact they didn't have a single turnover in the second half. During one of Utah's second quarter runs, he stemmed the tide with a pair of jumpers.

Utah cooled off, with Golden State going on a 17-4 run to start the final quarter of the season for the Jazz.

The big question for the National Basketball Association and playoff fans is whether or not the games are worth watching until the Finals if the outcomes seem so predetermined? Golden State swept them 4-0.
