Still Kevin Durant had 33 points and 10 rebounds and Golden State beat injury-riddled San Antonio 120-108 on Saturday night to take a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals.

Golden State has a chance to complete its third straight series sweep in Game 4 at San Antonio on Monday night. The Warriors are the third team in NBA history to win their first 11 playoff games. Cleveland is 10-0, with a 2-0 lead over Boston in the Eastern Conference final.

Curry added 21 points and became the franchise leader in postseason points, passing Hall of Famer Rick Barry.

Already without leading scorer Kawhi Leonard and starting point guard Tony Parker, the Spurs lost David Lee to a left knee injury in the opening quarter. He has been diagnosed with a partially torn patellar tendon in his left knee and will have an MRI on Sunday to confirm the injury.

For  the winners also Georgian Zaza Pachulia missed the game due to injury, while Spaniard Pau Gasol had a double double for the Spurs (12 p. 10 r.) and Latvian Davis Bertans added two points.
