Blazers head home for Game 3, down 2-0 to Golden State

Kawakami Steve Kerr’s Portland reset — with Houston in the rearview mirror the Warriors are free to get quirky again

Green had 20 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists, and the Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 110-99 on Saturday night for a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Whether there was a foul or not seem to rest where your loyalties lie.

"As the series goes on, it's going to get tougher and tougher, and that's our understanding moving forward", Green said. It was a much better game than we played in game one.

"I don't think it's something that's affecting my game", said Lillard, who is shooting 32.6 from the floor and has nearly as many turnovers (14) as field goals (15) in the West finals.

Kerr reiterated that the Warriors expect to know more ahead of Game Two at Oracle Arena on Thursday about whether Durant can return during this series once he is reevaluated.

"He's done that before during my five years here", the Warriors head coach told reports. "I just take odds on what you want to do and if the odds are in your favor then for something like that to happen outside of the three point line". "He's an incredible defender because he's got the whole package between the athleticism, length and most importantly the brain". Iguodala played 17 minutes and had nine points. They have to be willing to execute, make plays and help them out and loosen up the defense. It's those instincts that won him the MVP of the 2015 playoffs.

"With him on the court, there's just another great offensive player, and so when you put him out there with Steph and Klay (Thompson), it's really challenging from a defensive standpoint".

"I think the most important thing right there in that situation is Dre's intelligence".

Here are three takeaways from the Warriors' victory.

"We knew they were going to come out swinging", said Curry. "I mean, honestly, even when K's [Durant] out there, he's our safety valve in terms of we can end a possession that way, but we try to get to those looks and those patterns as much as we can". He grabbed my arm.

"This one is taking a little bit longer than the ones he's had in the past but that's OK", Kerr said. "Generally when he has something going on, he kind of keeps it to himself, so I would say it's not surprising". He got his hand on the ball.

Green is an excellent defensive player and has recorded five steals in the series, but Toronto can not afford empty minutes offensively.

The trio accounted for just 51 combined points in the first two games of the series. It took McCollum 23 shots to register 22 points. "You can be extra aggressive". The Blazers had held an eight-point lead heading into last few minutes of regulation but failed to capitalize on that advantage following in the waning moments of the period.

"You see like the morale, like everybody's shoulders are up and smiles, and just aggressiveness all over the floor", Stephen Curry said. I had a switch with Draymond [Green]; I missed a 3-pointer.
