With the Warriors focused on completing the series as quickly as possible in an effort to get some much needed rest, there is no reason to expect Kevin Durant and company to let their foot off the gas heading in to Game 3 National Basketball Association matchup. The Warriors have shot at least 52 percent in both games. The Dubs committed a turnover on the game's opening possession on their way to seven in the first frame, one shy of matching their most in a postseason first quarter under Steve Kerr. The game finished with a total of 217 points, which was 11.5 points above the projected point total of 205.5 points. Durant has 28 for Golden State.
