World No 1 Michael van Gerwen served up a typically brilliant performance to win the latest Coral UK Open qualifier at Robin Park Tennis Centre in Wigan. The Dutchman outplayed Gerwyn Price in the final, posting a 109.44 average during his 6-2 victory over a player who went into the tournament ranked 31 in the PDC Order of Merit. Van Gerwen took the opener before the Welshman levelled matters with a double 12. However, the 2014 world champion then took the next three legs that included a 130 check out on the bull.Price, who averaged an excellent 102 in the final, reduced the arrears before his opponents quickly raced through the final two legs to scoop the £10,000 first prize.In his seven best-of-11 matches during the tournament, van Gerwen dropped a total of just 14 legs and in the semi-finals beat Phil Taylor 6-3.Once again the victor averaged 109 and made four maximums, as he extended his advantage at the top of the Order of Merit.As for Price, who was contending his maiden PDC ranking final, he beat four of the worlds top 32 that included victories over Mervyn King, Vincent van der Voort, Mark Webster and Mensur Suljovic in the semi-finals.Reigning world champion Gary Anderson was knocked out at the last 16 stage, beaten 6-4 by Taylor.The sixth and final qualifier of the Coral UK Open is being played at the same venue on Sunday.Saturdays Tournament:Quarter-FinalsPhil Taylor 6-3 Jelle KlaasenMichael van Gerwen 6-2 Terry JenkinsMensur Suljovic 6-4 Simon WhitlockGerwyn Price 6-1 Mark WebsterSemi-FinalsMichael van Gerwen 6-3 Phil TaylorGerwyn Price 6-3 Mensur SuljovicFinalMichael van Gerwen 6-2 Gerwyn Price Also See: Anderson books UK Open place Wright top as MVG sinks Lewis PL Darts talking points Anderson will make play-offs Kris Jenkins College Jersey

And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. SALT LAKE CITY -- Slowing down Golden States offense is a bit like trying to move a mountain with bare hands. The Warriors are scorching one defense after another with their ability to relentlessly score from anywhere on the floor.Golden State (19-3) is averaging 130.5 points per game in the month of December. The Warriors have won their last two games by an average of 27.3 points, with the latest result being a 115-98 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.Their big three of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have been virtually unstoppable over the past four contests. Thompson is averaging 31.3 points on 48.9 percent shooting. Curry is scoring 22.8 points per game on 47.6 percent shooting and dishing out 6.0 assists. Durant is chipping in 23.8 points on 47.0 percent shooting and collecting 8.3 rebounds.This sort of offensive efficiency is no fluke. Golden State leads the NBA in field-goal percentage (.502) and is the only team in the league shooting above 50 percent. The Warriors are also league leaders in assists (32.0) and scoring (120.0).Its reached a point where Golden State almost demands perfection and a 115-point outing against the Clippers is a bit of a disappointment.Honestly, I dont think we played well offensively tonight, Draymond Green said after Thursdays game. We missed a lot of shots that we normally make. The flow wasnt really there. But the most important thing is we defended and didnt turn the ball over. And when you dont turn the ball over and you defend, you give yourself a chance to win every game.Dealing with such a potent offense will be challenging even for one the NBAs best defensive teams. The Utah Jazz are allowing just 95.5 points per game this season and have given up only 93.0 points per contest in 11 home contests.Containing Golden State at that level will be nearly impossible for Utah, which has just 11 available players for Thurssday.ddddddddddddGeorge Hill (sprained toe), Rodney Hood (hamstring strain), Derrick Favors (knee contusion) and Alec Burks (ankle rehabilitation) will not play against the Warriors.Gordon Hayward is also banged up after injuring the same finger he fractured during the preseason in Tuesdays 112-105 win over Phoenix. Hayward left during the third quarter to get the finger examined and returned for the fourth quarter. His finger was bruised and swollen after the game but, fortunately for Utah, not broken.It was stinging, so I wanted to make sure everything was fine before I came back, Hayward said. Sometimes, you just have to let pain dissipate a little bit. We put some spray on it and re-wrapped it. Its not broken. We X-rayed it and its fine.A troubling trend has emerged for the Jazz over their last three games. In each game, Utah has surrendered a double-digit lead during the fourth quarter and held on in the final minutes for a victory.Fourth-quarter sluggishness was really pronounced against the Suns. The Jazz scored just nine points over the first 10 minutes of the quarter and relaxed on defense, allowing Phoenix to rally from a 19-point deficit and tie the game at 103-103 with 3:07 remaining.I dont think were playing our best defense at all, Utah coach Quin Snyder said. The ball has gotten in the paint too much. Weve been playing teams that are just driving the ball. In some respects, when Rudy is protecting the rim, thats good. But if you look at the lineups weve had, we havent had a lot of quickness on the floor. Guys got to be more disciplined.Golden State has dominated the series with Utah in recent seasons. The Warriors have won five straight and 11 of the last 12 against the Jazz. Utahs lone win in that stretch was a 110-100 home victory on Jan. 30, 2015.
