Warriors too strong as Durant runs wild

GOLDEN State Warriors have become the third team in NBA history to win their first 11 playoff games.

Kevin Durant led the way with 33 points and 10 rebounds to outclass the injury-riddled San Antonio Spurs 120-108 to take a 3-0 lead in the NBA's Western Conference final.

Golden State has a chance to complete its third straight series sweep in game four tomorrow (AEST).

Stephen Curry added 21 points to overtake Hall of Famer Rick Barry as the franchise's leader in postseason scoring.

Australian point guard Patty Mills finished with seven points and six assists for the Spurs.

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.

San Antonio still managed to match a postseason high with 33 points in the opening quarter and lead by as many as six points in the first half.

Cleveland is 10-0, with a 2-0 lead over Boston in the Eastern Conference final.
