OAKLAND, Calif. -- If the Golden State Warriors can help Draymond Green pack his 3-point shot just in time for the team's trip out to Salt Lake City, then the Utah Jazz could be headed home for good within the next couple days.
Green showcased the ability to knock down the perimeter shot against Quin Snyder's squad, nailing five 3-pointers en route to a 21-point performance, to lead the Warriors to a 115-104 victory over the Jazz and take a 2-0 series lead in the Western Conference semifinals.
Kevin Durant scored 25 points with 11 rebounds and seven assists, while Stephen Curry poured in 23 points to help Golden State remain perfect on the postseason through six games.
Gordon Hayward scored a game-high 33 points in a losing effort for Utah.
The Jazz played without the services of point guard George Hill, who was ruled out prior to tipoff due to a sore left big toe.
Game 3 is set to be played on Saturday night in Salt Lake City.
The New Twenty Four was on hand to monitor all of the action surrounding Game 2 out in the Bay Area.
