Kevin Durant took over on Saturday night for the Warriors, carrying Golden State to a 102-91 victory with 38 points and 13 rebounds as the rest of the Warriors’ offense struggled to get going. It was the best game by Durant this postseason and proved that his calf strain that kept him out part of the Portland series was no longer a lingering issue.

Not only did Durant put the series on ice by leading Golden State to a Game 3 win and 3-0 lead, but the star forward showed an intensity that isn’t always common during the game. Durant got into it with the Jazz mascot, jawed with a fan, and had a scuffle with Rudy Gobert late in the fourth quarter that saw him get hit with a technical and a flagrant 1.
