On Saturday night, the Utah Jazz had an opportunity to get a rare upset win over the Golden State Warriors. In a back and forth Game 3, both teams held substantial leads, with the home team having the advantage in the third quarter. Unfortunately, Kevin Durant and the Warriors proved to be too much and once again took a double-digit win behind hot shooting and smart plays. Here's a look at how Golden State moved to 3-0 in this series and 7-0 in their 2017 NBA Playoffs run.

How the Warriors got the win

Tonight's game was all about Kevin Durant. The Golden State Warriors superstar finished with a game-high 38 points on 15-for-26 shooting that included hitting 4-of-8 three-point shots and making all four of his free throws. Durant also snatched 13 rebounds in this game while also having a block, steal, and assist. Teammate Stephen Curry didn't have his best shooting night, going 6-for-20 for 23 points, while Klay Thompson had an even worse outing, finishing 1-for-9 from the floor with six points total.

Golden State led by 11 at the half, but the Utah Jazz came back to lead by nine in the third. However, the fourth quarter was a Warriors' clinic. Despite a few hiccups, such as an incident where Kevin Durant was given a flagrant and technical foul for shoving Rudy Gobert, the "Dub nation" players drained big shots.

Gordon Hayward led all Jazz players with 29 points, while also getting six assists.

Gobert also had four assists and two blocks in the losing effort. All of the Jazz starters finished with double-digits in front of their home crowd but just didn't have enough to keep a lead late in the game as the Warriors showed why they're one of the favorites to win it all.
