For LeBron, another Cavs' sweep is within reach

Kevin Durant Game 3 Against Utah Jazz Basketball 17

Warriors forward Draymond Green did not practice after tweaking his left knee during Game 2.

They earned the Northwest Division title while being forced to use 23 different lineups in a season when change was the only constant.

Warriors will try to close out the best-of-seven Western Conference second-round series in game four on Monday in Salt Lake City.

What time does the Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz Game 3 Start?

But the Warriors are a clearly superior team, and for them the Jazz are another stepping stone on the road to what they hope is a second National Basketball Association championship in three years. Klay Thompson had one of his worst shooting nights of his career, putting up only six points on one-of-nine shooting.

It's time for the Jazz to channel their inner 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers - and then some.

Golden State's 97.4 defensive rating is a postseason-best and more than four points better than any other team.

The Warriors have only attempted one more shot than the Jazz this series, but not all shots are created equal.

That isn't to say that the Jazz can't win this one, as they found some success during stretches of Game 3. Playing at a slower pace is nothing new to Utah, but it inevitably means taking more shots in late shot clock situations, which they did not have a lot of success with in Game 2. The two teams that we expect to be there have yet to lose a playoff game. A minute before the end of the second quarter "jazz" after a long contact with Huda for the first time in the series took the lead.

This is exactly what GM Bob Myers had hoped for when Kevin Durant chose to sign with the Golden State Warriors.

At the start of the second half Hayward knocked down a three, the Jazz got some stops and makes, but could never pull away. The Jazz simply don't have enough to keep up. "Just believe in ourselves". That's the benefit of putting together a true "super-team" and signing a free agent that's better than anyone on a team that set a record for wins a year ago. "So that puts Gobert in a perdicerment, we've got a seven footer who is coming at him downhill". Do you lose energy or do you respond with aggressiveness and confidence that we can get the momentum back on our side? Look for the Warriors to get up by double digits early and cruise to another victory, covering at online gambling sites and completing the sweep.

"Us improving through the series is not the same as winning".

"I expect it to be a hostile environment", Green said. "But I think from where we were in Game 1, not getting back in transition, to doing a better job, we're going to have to do those things first in order to win". We understand that's a possibility, but as far as thinking like that, we haven't gotten there. So that question we haven't really hit head on or directly. On Saturday night, he missed all three of his treys.

Hill's status remains up in the air for what could be the final game in this version of Vivint Arena, which will be renovated over the offseason.

UTAH (91) - Ingles 4-6 0-0 10, Hayward 7-18 13-14 29, Diaw 5-12 0-0 10, Gobert 7-8 7-15 21, Mack 3-11 4-5 11, Johnson 3-12 0-0 7, Favors 0-1 0-0 0, Neto 0-0 0-0 0, Exum 0-1 0-0 0, Hood 1-8 0-0 3.
