Trail Blazers Outplayed In Fourth Quarter Again, Warriors Take 2-0 Series Lead

OAKLAND -- No lead is ever safe versus a team like the Golden State Warriors, which is something the Trail Blazers already knew, but it doesn't make it any easier to stomach.

Portland took a 15-point lead into the halftime intermission, only to see the entirety of that advantage, and then some, vanish in the third quarter on the way to losing Game 2 114-111 in front of a sellout crowd of 19,596 Thursday night at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors now lead the series 2-0 with the next two games to be played in Portland.
