The two-time defending Western Conference champions swept the best-of-seven series. It's one of three games on tap for the day: Toronto hosts Milwaukee with that series even at 2-all, and Washington has a 2-1 advantage in its series with Game 4 at Atlanta.

Stephen Curry delivered team highs of 37 points and eight assists before sitting out the final quarter with the game and series in hand.

Keeping up that intensity for the rest of the game, the Warriors cruised to a 128-103 victory and in the process, swept the Blazers in the first-round.

It ended with Lionel Messi scoring his 500th career goal in the final minute to give Barcelona a 3-2 win over Real Madrid. Southampton boss Claude Puel rued the concession of goals at crucial periods in the game.

Howard, who was a non-factor through the first three games, had a double-double by halftime and finished with 16 points and 15 rebounds. "There was a nice energy to us before the game".

"We have so much depth, it's kind of like a next-man up approach", Klay Thompson said. Draymond Green continued his excellent, versatile play by finishing with 21 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks. If that series extends to seven, Game 1 of Round 2 will be next Tuesday. The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 101 points on 39.9 percent shooting and allowing 116.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting.

The Warriors will also await word on coach Steve Kerr's health - with the short break perhaps providing more clarity about when he can rejoin the team.

"They came out really energized, focused. We were slow to react and couldn't get it going".

That run continues in the hockey hotbed of Toronto , which has hosted only three NHL playoff games in the last 12 seasons. Noel Acciari, David Backes and David Pastrnak answered for the Bruins in their second straight three-goal second period.

Golden State pushed the margin to 33 points in the second half. It started in the opening quarter where Golden State dropped 45 points. It was everyone. As was the case this entire series, the Warriors didn't get a poor performance from anywhere in their rotation.

Mike Brown is running the show while Kerr is out. "Our guys were locked in on both ends of the floor. And we didn't play almost as well as they needed to and they showed why they're a championship team".

The Warriors wanted to end the series Monday night for several reasons. "But I'm not going to do that unless I know I can help the team", he added.

"I think we need his presence as we go through the playoffs, for him to get a rhythm, get his feet under him", Curry said about Durant. That series is now deadlocked at two games apiece. He didn't hit his first field goal until early in the fourth quarter, and he wound up with six points. He's a challenge. (Former) MVP.

The two organizations he met with are B'Tzelem and Breaking the Silence, groups that exist only to vilify Israel. Gabriel is scheduled to visit the Palestinian Authority and Jordan following his trip to Israel.

That was followed by praise for James' teammates for their efforts, which then led into his best thoughts for Kerr. "So yeah, there's that.". Last season's Coach of the Year missed the first 43 games of the 2015-2016 season with symptoms that resulted from complications with his back surgery.
