Davis, Warriors look to even series vs. Jazz

May 13, 2007 - 12:47 PM Utah at Golden State 9:00 pm EDT Western Conference Semifinals Game Four

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Baron Davis and the Golden State Warriors can get even with the Utah Jazz on Sunday in Game Four of their Western Conference semifinal.

The Warriors are 4-0 at home in the postseason with three wins over the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks and a 125-105 victory over the Jazz in Game Three on Friday night.

Davis recorded 32 points, nine assists and six steals in the Warriors' win on Friday. The two-time All-Star, who has four 30-plus point games in the 2007 playoffs, also had the play of the postseason, skying for a dunk over Jazz shot-blocker Andrei Kirilenko with 2:48 left to put an exclamation point on the victory.

However if Golden State is to have any chance of winning this conference semifinal it must continue to make its 3-pointers (41 percent) at a high rate to offset the inside game of Utah. The Warriors, who made 15 from the arc Friday and 42 total in three games vs. the Jazz, have attempted at least 30 3-pointers in their last six playoff games.

Utah All-Star Carlos Boozer scored only 19 points in Game Three, after tallying 30 in Wednesday's overtime victory.

Utah also needs Deron Williams to stay on the floor and out of foul trouble. The second-year point guard had four fouls on Friday, and he and backcourt mate Derek Fisher collected most of their 10 combined infractions trying to stay with Davis.

Williams, who averaged 23.5 points and 11 assists in Utah's first two wins, had just 14 and six in Game Three.

Utah is 6-0 all-time when it has won the first two games of a best-of-seven series.
