On Monday night, the Golden State Warriors matched the Cleveland Cavaliers in this year's NBA Playoffs run with their second-straight sweep. On Sunday, it was Cleveland putting away Toronto 4-0 to move on to the Eastern Conference Finals. A night later, Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and the Warriors ousted the Jazz on their home court in Utah. Here's a look at how the Warriors got the latest win to sweep away a talented Jazz team in four games.

Game 4 recap

In Game 3 it was Kevin Durant leading the way. In Game 4 it was two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry who led the charge. In the latest outing, Curry led all Warriors' players with 30 points on 9-for-15 shooting.

He also dished out seven assists and grabbed five rebounds. Teammate Klay Thompson had a better performance than the previous game, hitting 9-of-16 shots he took and finishing with 21 points, while Durant had 17 points, six boards, and five assists. Draymond Green had a triple-double for the team with 17 points, 11 assists, and ten rebounds.

The box score showed a similar effort from Utah's top players as the previous game. Gordon Hayward was once again the overall points leader with 25 scored on 8-for-21 shooting. He also hit four of the seven three-point shots he attempted. Rudy Gobert finished with another double-double, going for 12 points and pulling in 13 rebounds.

As a team, the Jazz shot just 37.1 percent for the game, though.

They were also outrebounded 50-42 by the Warriors and simply couldn't match the firepower of this Golden State offense. The Warriors knew this series was just about over and put their feet on the gas pedal to make sure it ended tonight.

What's up next

The Utah Jazz defied expectations in a way by advancing past their first-round matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers.

It took Utah the full seven games and an injury to Blake Griffin, but they soon found themselves severely overmatched against one of the league's titles contenders. They're certainly a team on the upswing, though, and unless players like Gordon Hayward or Rudy Gobert somehow leave, they're in good shape heading forward.

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors now get to sit back and watch as the Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs play at least two more games in their series. With the best-of-seven matchup tied up at 2-2, it will be at least Game 6 before a winner is declared. The Warriors will have plenty of time to recuperate after this latest sweep and start preparing for the Western Conference Finals.
