The Golden State Warriors have prevailed over home side the Utah Jazz 102-91 to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their NBA playoff series.

The Warriors began the away game brightly on Saturday night and had a 10-point advantage in the first quarter. But, the hosts roared back and managed to steal the show momentarily to make it 50-49 at the intermission.

The Jazz even extended their lead to as many as nine points in the third quarter. But, the Warriors found their rhythm and came back to round things off and win with nine points, thanks to a stunning performance by Kevin Durant who had 38 points in the night.

Game 4 which will be held in Salt Lake City on Monday, could be Utah's final this season.
