Live playoff updates: Warriors vs. Jazz, Game 3 Saturday
Scroll down to get the latest score and analysis from our live feed on Saturday at 5:30 p.m., as the Warriors face the Jazz in Utah in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals.
The Warriors are looking to grab a commanding 3-0 series lead in the series’ first game in Salt Lake City. Golden State withstood Gordon Hayward’s 33-point performance in Game 2 to grab a 115-104 victory.
Utah, which lost two of its three home games during its seven-game series win over the Clippers, hope to have George Hill (toe) back. He’s considered a game-time decision.
The Warriors will once again be without head coach Steve Kerr, who is now expected to miss at least the remainder of their series with the Jazz. Interim coach Mike Brown has led the Warriors to a 4-0 record after Kerr coached a pair of victories to begin the Portland series.
Here are the projected starting lineups:
C Zaza Pachulia
PF Draymond Green
SF Kevin Durant
SG Klay Thompson
PG Stephen Curry
C Rudy Gobert
PF Gordon Hayward
SF Joe Johnson
SG Joe Ingles
PG Shelvin Mack
