Warriors roll Spurs in West, build 3-0 lead

Kevin Durant scored 19 of his 33 points in the pivotal third quarter, and the visiting Golden State Warriors raced past the San Antonio Spurs for a 120-108 road win in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Saturday.

Steph Curry added 21 points for the Warriors, who now hold a 3-0 lead in the series.

No NBA team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit.

The Spurs were again without star forward Kawhi Leonard, who injured his ankle in Game 1. His status for the next game remains up in the air. Spurs legend Manu Ginobili, perhaps playing the final games of his career, led his team with 21 points. LaMarcus Aldridge added 18. Game 4 is Tuesday in San Antonio.
