In Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, the Golden State Warriors got another top notch performance from superstar Kevin Durant. Meanwhile, despite having the game on their home court, the San Antonio Spurs continued to miss their top star, Kawhi Leonard. The end result was a 120-108 victory for the visiting Warriors to put them ahead 3-0 in the best-of-seven series. They now have a chance of closing out the series in a few days to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals. Here's a look at how Durant and Golden State captured yet another win in this year's NBA Playoffs.

Durant leads way, Spurs miss Leonard

In Saturday night's win, Golden State received a game-high 33 points from Kevin Durant on 11-for-19 shooting. Durant knocked down 3-of-5 three-point shots he attempted and also snatched 10 rebounds while dishing out four assists to teammates. Stephen Curry added 21 points on 8-for-15 shooting, while Klay Thompson had 17. The trio of Durant, Curry, and Thompson was 9-of-18 for three-point shots in the game, with the team shooting 54.8 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from downtown.

The San Antonio Spurs were once again without Kawhi Leonard due to the ankle he injured in the third quarter of Game 1. Veteran guard Manu Ginobili came off the bench to score a team-high 21 points on 7-for-9 shooting and LaMarcus Aldridge scored 18 points. Jonathan Simmons had 14 points but it was clear the team is missing the services of not only Leonard but point guard Tony Parker. Patty Mills and Danny Green managed just seven points each as part of the starting unit, although Green combined with fellow starter Kyle Anderson to pull down 17 rebounds.
