Recap: Warriors Nip Blazers 114-111, Take 2-0 Lead

So close. The Portland Trail Blazers led Golden State through most of the fourth quarter, but the Warriors pulled ahead in the final minutes to grab the win. (Box Score). The Warriors take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference Finals.

A great first half leads to nothing. An energized Portland outplayed Golden State in the first half, finding their range to take a 17-point lead. All looked great. But...

A brutal third quarter tipped the scales. Portland laid an egg in the third, and were shoved all over the court by the far-more-aggressive Golden State.
