The NBA champion Golden State Warriors rode a dominant third quarter to a decisive 123-95 victory over the Heat in Miami on Sunday.

Miami took a 36-33 first-quarter lead despite 16 points in the period from Stephen Curry.

The Warriors then saw forward Shaun Livingston ejected in the second quarter after making contact with a game official while arguing a non-call.

But the Warriors roared ahead in the third quarter, opening the second half with a dunk from Kevin Durant en route to a 12-2 scoring run.

The Warriors out-scored the Heat 37-17 in the third to take a 99-77 lead into the final frame.

Curry finished with 30 points as the Warriors improved to 3-0 on their current road trip.
