Different Venue, Same Result As Blazers Lose Game 3 To Warriors In Portland

PORTLAND -- If there were no third quarters in NBA games, the Trail Blazers would be in pretty good position to defeat the Warriors in the 2019 Western Conference Finals.

Unfortunately, third quarters do exist, even if the Trail Blazers don't seem prepared for them.

For the second consecutive game, the Blazers took a double-digit lead into the halftime, only to see said advantage quickly evaporate in the third quarter. And the result was the same, with the Warriors running the Blazers out of their own building in the second half on the way to winning Game 3 110-99 in front of a sellout crowd of 20,214 Saturday night at the Moda Center.
