Warriors Sweep Jazz, Advance to WCF


The Golden State Warriors swept the Utah Jazz to advance to the Western Conference finals for the third consecutive year, following a 121-95 victory on Monday night.

Along with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors are a perfect 8-0 this postseason. It is the second time that two teams have been undefeated entering the conference finals under the current playoff format (since 1983-84). It is the first time the Warriors have swept two series in a postseason and the first time they have swept back-to-back series. Utah was stifled all evening, shooting a postseason-low 37.1 percent from the field.
