Draymond Green leads Golden State Warriors to win v Portland Trailblazers

Tuesday, 21 May, 2019

Jones, who played in just 24 games in the regular season because of a torn pectoral muscle, collected three fouls in the game's opening three minutes and headed to the bench. "I've never met a better rebounder than Dennis".

Kevin Durant has been ruled out of Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Portland Trailblazers.

They've been winning games without superstar Kevin Durant, who has been out with a strained right calf, and it's not clear when he'll be back on the floor. The Warriors have won at least one road game in 22 straight playoff series, extending their own record. After tallying just eight points through the first two games, he managed to finish with 16 points and four made three-pointers. "Obviously, we have the star power".

Lillard confirmed the injury on Sunday, a day after the Trail Blazers lost 110-99 in Game 3.

Game 3 and 4 will be held in Portland, and the Warriors will be missing Durant again.

The Warriors seem to be much more free on the court without Durant and have figured out ways to win.

"We've been here before", Green said, per ESPN.

If you missed any of the action from Game 3, we had you covered with updates, stats, highlights and more.

It's led to ridiculous opinions that the Warriors are better without the impending free agent.

The Warriors, having stole all the momentum in the third quarter, quickly pushed to an 11-point lead in the first seven minutes of the fourth. They may lose to Portland for all we know. or they may lose to Milwaukee in the NBA Finals, or Toronto if they get there. "I was just trying to get space to get a three up ..." The Warriors kicked things up a notch on the defensive end, making things hard for Damian Lillard to do much of anything.

After getting blown out in Game 1, the Blazers led by 17 in the second half of Game 2, but the Warriors stormed back for a 114-111 victory.

Kerr said in many ways Green reminds him a bit of Dennis Rodman, the coach's former teammate on the Chicago Bulls.

"That's the last thing we need if we want to have any chance to beat this team", Lillard said of what he called "practice shots". "I think our experience helped us".

The Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. "And his versatility in his offense", Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. We've got to play with great discipline and some desperation like we did for only parts of (Game 2).

Portland's 15-point halftime lead was on the back of an all around effort from the team, but well and truly highlighted by their lights out shooting from beyond the arc.

Lillard's Game 2 struggles were encapsulated by the final possession on which he was stripped by Andre Iguodala as he had an opportunity to tie the game.

Green said he has mellowed, and credited his family - including 2-year-old Draymond Green Jr. - for his newfound awareness.
