Golden State now waits for San Antonio or Houston for third round of the Playoffs

Golden State Warriors, NBA

by London Marq

In another brilliant show of defensive domination, the Golden State Warriors complete the four game sweep of the Utah Jazz.

Utah was outscored by 22 points when the first quarter, stifled under a Golden State Defense that swarmed to the ball. The Jazz were under constant defensive pressure and one more pass was never enough to get a clean look at the basket. The quarter would end 39-22.

After that Jazz were playing catch up. You can’t win a game in the first half, but you can lose one. That was a theme in this series. Over the four matchups, the Jazz averaged 17 points in the first quarter.

The Warriors starters have each had their shining moments in this conference semifinal. Tonight it was Curry’s turn, as he dropped 30 points, five rebounds, and seven assists on the way to the blowout win.

Golden State now awaits the winner of the Houston/San Antonio. The series is tied two games a piece, so it will be a while in the Warriors will be back on the hardwood.

Final 121-95
