Blazers Lose, but Defense Shines Against Warriors

The Golden State Warriors slept-walked to a 100-92 victory over the ambitious Portland Trail Blazers tonight in front of the Moda Center crowd. Steph Curry led the way with 22 points but struggled shooting the ball throughout the night. Then with about six minutes left in the game, Curry decided they did need the win in order to keep pace with the LA Lakers for better positioning in the Play-In games.

The Blazers, led by Deandre Ayton, Scoot Henderson, and Jabari Walker, played well enough to win the game. With 8:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, the Blazers held a 85-79 lead.
