The overwhelming win gave New Zealand an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.
Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed and Faheem Ashraf were able to score 14 runs for the seventh wicket but the latter soon fell to Ferguson whereas Hasan Ali's bowl was caught, Kane Williamson.
Batting first after winning the toss, New Zealand were bowled out for 257 in their 50 overs, a total that proved out to be a huge one in the end, as Pakistan collapsed to 74 all out - their fourth-lowest ODI total.
Don't be surprised if Pakistan make a bunch of changes to their playing XI for Tuesday's fourth ODI against New Zealand.
Taylor made 52 off 64 for his 57th ODI half-century, equalling the New Zealand record held by Stephen Fleming and Nathan Astle.
Nicholls was brilliantly caught and bowled by Shadab and Santner and Tim Southee (6) were both bowled by Hasan who swung the ball at yorker length.

Williamson put on 69 with Martin Guptill (45) for the second wicket and 74 with Taylor for the third to lift New Zealand to 158-3 before he was out in the 34th over.
Pakistan's top-five combined for just 13 runs in the third loss of the series, and seven batsmen failed to crack double-figures.
Williamson and Taylor kept Pakistan on the back foot as they forged a 74-run stand, during which Williamson surpassed his fifty. "The focus is the next game". "Fantastic performance all around, a tough surface to get in on".
"To score only 250 on the board we knew we had to fight hard and to come out like that was very satisfying".
"My [Albion-Kilda club cricket] teammates were giving me s. because I dropped an absolute sitter on the boundary with two hands the other week before Christmas", Dougherty told a New Zealand website after holding the catch.
