The Portland Trail Blazers fell to 2-0 in the Western Conference Finals tonight as the Golden State Warriors recovered from a 15-point halftime deficit to beat Portland, 114-111. Five Blazers scored at least 12 points, including 16 from Seth Curry off the bench. The Blazers shot 44.2% from the field and 46.2% from three-point range, but they couldn’t match the Warriors’ production down the stretch.
Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, who combined for 45 points, failed to score in the final seven minutes of the game. Meyers Leonard and Curry tried to keep Portland’s offense afloat, but Golden State consistently created easy looks around the basket as Portland’s defense stretched to the perimeter, trying to eliminate three-point looks by a red-hot Steph Curry.
