Toronto's Lowry says he is doubtful for Game 4

Warriors at Jazz, Golden State leads 3-0. The problem is this game was a flawless example of just how hard to take a game off the Warriors let alone a series.

Former MVPs Kevin Durant and Steph Curry took it from there.

The Warriors would love to join the Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference finals by virtue of sweeping their first two opponents, as both teams are unbeaten in the playoffs and on a collision course to meet in the NBA Finals for a third consecutive season. This evening only three players (KD, Curry, Iguodala) met that benchmark. On the other, the Jazz just couldn't get stops in this situation. Golden State is now 73-15 overall, 33-10 on the road and 43-42-3 against the spread. The Warriors, meanwhile, gained a unsafe dimension to their offense, largely immunizing it from the shooting funks that occasionally envelop it. They held their own without the star forward in their first-round series against Portland, when he sat two games with a left calf strain.

Bigging up this Warriors team is a bit like claiming Michael Jordan could play a bit or that John Stockton was able to spot a pass. The teams play Game 4 On Monday, May 8, at 6 p.m. PST. After all, Golden State had eight days in between series to rest and scout the Jazz. Last year, they won 73 games.

Ryan McDonagh and Jimmy Vesey answered the bell with back-to-back goals to put NY up 4-3 before Ottawa jumped into comeback mode. Senators coach Guy Boucher pointed to New York's defensive structure as a reason for the Senators' lack of offence in Game 4.

The Jazz are actually down 3-0 now, and no one would be surprised if they get swept.

It's those times when the stakes are high and Warriors need someone else's back to board. It didn't matter. By the end of the game, the Warriors found a way to counter. The Jazz played without starting point guard George Hill, who had a toe injury. Behind poor shooting nights from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, the Warriors surrendered the lead for the first time this postseason late in the second quarter and trailed Utah 50-49 at halftime.

Realistically there isn't much more the Jazz could have asked for in tonight's loss. As the broadcast pointed out, this is only the eighth game Durant has played in the last two months.

The Jazz continue to struggle from three, shooting 7/22 (31%) and couldn't seem to hit shots when it mattered most. All five starters scored in double figures for Utah, but it wasn't enough to overcome a fourth-quarter surge by the Warriors.

We know how they play, there are no surprises. "But we're really happy with finding a way but we know we have to be better". The Penguins scored three goals on 14 shots on Holtby, who was pulled in favor of Philipp Grubauer after the second period.

How have the Warriors transitioned so smoothly after their leader's medical departure in the middle of the first round to Brown's stewardship and kept on winning and advancing?

3 What is going on with the Warriors and... their lack of turnovers? Hayward (2-6), Joe Johnson (1-5), and Rodney Hood (1-4) need to shoot the three ball better and make those shots which give the team added energy. While the Warriors did manage to successfully create opportunities for Durant to attack Gobert off the dribble, leading to a number of pull-up jumpers, the Jazz will take those looks on defense over getting picked apart inside or behind the arc. With that chance squandered away, game four could get ugly right out of the gate. Jazz head coach Quin Snyder was wired up during tonight's game and said that he didn't think the moment was too big for his team. He put up 2017 postseason highs of 38 points and 13 rebounds, on 15-26 shooting.

In the second quarter, Gobert made the Salt Lake City crowd go insane with a two-handed dunk on a fast break. The Utah Jazz are averaging 98.1 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 100.7 points on 47.3 percent shooting.
